To address climate change, we need to reduce net anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to zero as soon as possible; that is, hopefully by 2050 or so.
Musings on “solar fuels machines” for an efficient, scalable and cost-effective way to convert water and carbon dioxide into value added molecular energy carriers.
The argument for making synthetic fuel from CO2 using renewable electricity in an increasingly electrified world is by now a familiar one. It hinges on the unlikely scenario that lithium ion batteries will never power the massive fleet of large-volume transportation...
Our global community has been tasked to define and implement a Manhattan style strategy for reducing CO2 emissions at the gigatonne scale. The vision to accomplish this heroic goal is a holistic paradigm, which makes use of all the technologies in the CO2 utilization...
A chemistry and engineering nano-solution that aims to safeguard Earth against climate change can be imagined metaphorically as a “Life Raft” that will sustain renewable energy systems and living systems “thriving and buoyant” over the next thousand years when fully deployed around the globe.
The importance of revisiting and rediscovering old work: The exploitation of frustrated Lewis pairs.
Weapons of Mass Construction in the War on Climate Change: Heterogeneous Catalysis and Electro-Catalysis
In the war against climate change two promising approaches are being developed for catalytically converting CO2 to value-added chemicals and fuels
What are we going to do with the rapidly increasing concentrations of CH4 and associated combustion product CO2 building up in our atmosphere?
Opinion: Do you think we have a serious greenhouse gas climate change problem caused by anthropogenic CO2 emissions in our atmosphere, which is threatening the future health and well-being of our civilization?
Prof. Geoffrey Ozin discusses our growing gigatonne CO2 challenge, and how we must now work together to solve it.
