Stanford Discovery Could Lead to Sustainable Source of the Fuel Additive Ethanol

Submitted by on June 21, 2017 – 10:44 amNo Comment

by Mark Schwartz (Stanford News)  Most of the fuel additive ethanol used in the U.S. is made from corn. But new research reveals that copper can turn carbon dioxide into ethanol without using corn or other plants.

A recent discovery by Stanford University scientists could lead to a new, more sustainable way to make ethanol without corn or other crops. This technology has three basic components: water, carbon dioxide and electricity delivered through a copper catalyst. The results are published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Scientists would like to design copper catalysts that selectively convert carbon dioxide into higher-value chemicals and fuels, like ethanol and propanol, with few or no byproducts. But first they need a clear understanding of how these catalysts actually work. That’s where the recent findings come in.  READ MORE and MORE (Phys.Org) and MORE (Science Daily)  Abstract (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences) and MORE (Stanford Daily)
