New catalyst transforms carbon dioxide from industrial emissions into commonly used chemicals

Researchers have developed a low-cost, tin-based catalyst that efficiently converts carbon dioxide from industrial emissions into valuable chemicals like ethanol, acetic acid, and formic acid. This electrocatalytic process is highly selective, with different sizes of tin particles driving the formation of specific chemicals. The breakthrough uses electricity, potentially from renewable sources, to power the conversion, offering a sustainable way to reduce CO₂ emissions and produce useful products locally, minimizing transport and storage costs.
