  • Synthetic biology! Convert carbon dioxide into formic acid

    Editor’s recommendation: reducing carbon dioxide light into transportable fuels, such as formic acid (HCOOH), is a good way to deal with the rise of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. A research team at Tokyo University of technology has developed a catalyst containing iron-based minerals and alumina support, which can effectively convert carbon dioxide to HCOOH with a selectivity of about 90%! Greenhouse effect, carbon peak, carbon neutralization &hellip… Rising levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and its contribution to global warming are now commonplace news. Converting excess carbon dioxide…
