Analysis of Catalysis

So, uhh… this is a pretty big deal. Capture just became a much more attractive option.

‘Green methane’ from artificial photosynthesis could recycle CO2:

The methane-generating method is made possible by a new catalyst developed through a collaboration among the University of Michigan, McGill University and McMaster University. A paper on the findings is published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

The solar-powered catalyst is made from abundant materials and works in a configuration that could be mass produced. The researchers think that it could be recycling smokestack carbon dioxide into clean-burning fuel within 5-10 years.

An alternative approach that allows direct capture from the atmosphere. 😳
