An important cause of global warming is carbon dioxide (CO2) production. This CO2 can be an attractive source for fuels and chemicals. Science reports that a research team from Ghent University, led by Dr. Vladimir Galvita, has developed a highly promising concept to obtain carbon monoxide (CO) as a versatile building block for the chemical industry. “Super-dry” reforming of natural gas (CH4) is performed so that three times more CO2 can be converted than with currently applied technologies.
