The demand for processes that efficiently convert CO2 into chemicals is increasing. A promising method is the electrochemical conversion of CO2 to reduce the emission of CO2 to the environment, as well as to utilize (waste) CO2 as a feedstock. This electrochemical conversion is requires a catalyst which has to be efficient, stable and be able to reduce CO2 at high current densities and low overpotentials. Previous work at the UT has resulted in the development of a catalyst that exhibits high faradaic efficiencies. The focus of current research is on understanding how this catalyst works and on optimizing it.
