Techno-economic analysis of CO2 electrolysis
Low-temperature CO2 electrolysis represents a potential enabling process in the production of renewable chemicals and fuels, notably carbon monoxide, formic acid, ethylene and ethanol. We recently conducted a systematic techno-economic assessment to evaluate its feasibility as a CO2 utilization approach. The results have been published in Nature Sustainability.

Impacts of NOx on CO2 electrolysis
Industrial carbon dioxide point sources often contain numerous contaminants, such as nitrogen oxides, and therefore, it is important to understand the potential impact of contaminants on carbon dioxide electrolysis processes. In a recent study published in Nature Communications, we investigated the carbon dioxide electroreduction properties of Cu, Ag, and Sn catalysts in the presence of NOx. More details can be found here.
