New Breakthrough in Solar Energy Application: Converting Carbon Dioxide into Fuel

Molybdenum Carbide: What’s it?

Molybdenum carbide has excellent properties such as a high melting temperature and hardness. It also exhibits good thermal and chemical stability. Molybdenum carbide is a silvery-white refractory metallic with a melting points of 2615. It has a density 102g/cm3, and an expansion coefficient of 0.5, almost equal to that of electronic tube glass. The molybdenum can be stored at room temperatures and will quickly oxidize above 600.

Molybdenum Molybdenum Carbon Carbide As Fuel

Many scientists are inspired by plants’ ingenious way of turning light into fuel, according to media reports. Photosynthesis today is the cornerstone of solving our carbon dioxide crisis. Linköping University researchers in Sweden discovered a method to make carbon dioxide more fuel-efficient by using solar energy. The photoelectrode was created by Linköping University in Sweden. It is coated with a layer graphene. Graphene has become a popular material. It is essentially a layer made of carbon atoms that can be used to capture sunlight and create charge carriers. The next step is to convert carbon dioxide, water, methane, and carbon monoxide into formic acid.

From Carbon Dioxide To Hydrocarbons

This is yet another sign of the increasing effort to make carbon dioxide more useful, which is the aim of many environmental initiatives as well the Paris Agreement. The momentum seems to be growing, with the potential for technological breakthroughs. In fact, this spring, both the University of Southern California (National Renewable Energy Laboratory) and University of Southern California (University of Southern California) announced they created a new catalyst for hydrogenation. This is a less expensive process than the conversion of CO2 into hydrocarbons.

Molybdenum Carbide Catalyst

The catalyst was created using nanotechnology and nanoparticles made of molybdenum carbonide. Molybdenum carbide is a combination of metal and carbon compounds that can be used for a variety of purposes, such as the transformation of carbon dioxide to carbon monoxide or the production of hydrocarbons. The cost of any project that aims to make use of the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is important. The cost of carbon capture technology is one example. Many think that carbon capture technology cannot be afforded and is therefore not feasible for solving global emission issues on large scale.
