Catalysts for climate protection

How can we achieve the internationally agreed climate targets? The Fraunhofer Institute for Interfacial Engineering and Biotechnology IGB makes the greenhouse gas CO2 usable as a carbon source for the chemical industry. With a patented catalyst synthesis, screening for the optimal catalyst in high throughput and combined (electro)chemical-biotechnological processes, various concepts are available to CO2 emitting industries. The platform chemical ethylene has already been successfully produced from CO2 in an electrochemical demonstrator with an electrode area of 130 square centimeters.
