Since carbon and fossil fuels are essential components in the production of steel, cement, and chemicals, these industries are particularly challenging to decarbonize. The overall emissions from these "hard-to-abate" industries might be decreased with the use of technologies that can capture carbon emissions and transform them into forms that feed back into the production process.
The two independent processes used by experimental systems to capture and transform carbon dioxide both need a significant amount of energy. In order to absorb and convert carbon dioxide from concentrated industrial sources, the MIT team is attempting to integrate the two procedures into a single, integrated, and significantly more energy-efficient system that might run on renewable energy.
The researchers explain how carbon dioxide may be gathered and converted using a single electrochemical method in a work that will be published in ACS Catalysis today. An electrode is used in the procedure to draw carbon dioxide emitted from a sorbent and transform it into a diminished, reusable form.
