A leap toward carbon neutrality: New catalyst converts carbon dioxide to methanol

Scientists at the University of Michigan have discovered a new catalyst, cobalt phthalocyanine, that can efficiently convert carbon dioxide into methanol. This breakthrough involves a two-step process where CO₂ is first transformed into carbon monoxide and then into methanol. This approach holds the potential to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and produce clean energy. Their research addresses the challenges of large-scale electrochemical conversion, advancing efforts toward carbon neutrality. Read the full article here:
