University of Iowa - CO2 to Formic Acid
Technology Owner: University of Iowa
About: Selective and efficient electrochemical production of neat formic acid from CO₂ using novel PGM-free catalysts: abiotic electrolyzer cost-effectively convert CO₂ to formic acid; The project will design a process where CO₂ is collected from the flue gas of coal or fossil fuel combustion and fed to the electrolyzer; The supercritical CO₂ phase will be used for reduction and a liquid water phase will be used for oxidation.
Application: Utilization
Type: Short-term Recycling
Utilization: CO2 to formic acid
Location: Iowa City, Iowa
