Electrochemical carbon dioxide conversion to fuels and chemicals
Obtainium, CA, United States
Using carbon dioxide, water, and electricity as inputs, we can transform waste carbon dioxide emissions into valuable chemicals and fuels, that are cost competitive with those derived from petroleum in the traditional manner.
Primary Application Area: Materials & Chemical
Technology Development Status: Prototype
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 3
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: Electrochemical CO2 conversion technology would allow CO2 emitters to transform a waste product into a revenue stream. One example application is in a corn ethanol plant, where ethanol production could be raised by 50% through utilization of carbon dioxide from the fermentation process.
