University of Delaware - CO2 to Alcohols
Technology Owner: University of Delaware
About: Novel integrated electrolysis system to produce C2-C3 alcohols, such as ethanol and propanol, using carbon dioxide (CO2) from coal-fired power plant flue gas. The conversion technology will produce these valuable chemicals through a two-stage electrolysis process. In the first stage, flue gas will be pretreated to remove contaminants and will then be converted into carbon monoxide (CO) by CO2 electrolysis, followed by the second stage electrolysis process where the produced CO will be further converted into liquid C2-C3 alcohols with a high selectivity and energy efficiency.
Application: Utilization
Type: Short-term Recycling
Utilization: CO2 to C2-C3 alcohols
Location: Newark, Delaware
