CEBC researchers are developing a novel way to convert carbon dioxide, a gas emitted from fossil fuel combustion, into something more useful.  Their innovative technology, which involves pressurized electrochemistry, is a major step towards becoming commercially viable, as shown in results recently published in the journal ChemSusChem. Artwork on the journal’s cover highlights the team’s exciting results.

The University of Kansas research team is led by James Blakemore, Assistant Professor of Chemistry, Kevin Leonard, Assistant Professor of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering, and Bala Subramaniam, Dan F. Servey Distinguished Professor of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering.

2016 award from the National Science Foundation helped the team initiate development of its new technology by creating a first-of-its-kind apparatus for the reaction. The findings offer a proof-of-concept for the feasibility of this unique experimental approach.
