Carbon dioxide can be turned into a valuable resource
In a new study, researchers from the Paul Scherrer Institute PSI show that CO2 electrolysis can not only be profitable, but can also contribute to climate protection. With this method, carbon dioxide is captured from the atmosphere or at the point of production, such as an industrial plant. An electrolysis cell then converts the gas for industrial use, such as in chemicals production. The study, published today in the journal Renewable & Sustainable Energy Reviews, simulates the use of different cell designs on an industrial scale.
