Unstoppable Catalyst Outsmarts Sulfur to Revolutionize Carbon Capture

An electrochemical catalyst for converting CO2 to valuable products can stand up to an impurity that poisons current versions. A new catalyst enhances the conversion of captured carbon into commercial products, maintaining high efficiency despite sulfur oxide impurities. This innovation could significantly reduce costs and energy requirements in carbon capture technologies, impacting heavy industries. A newly designed catalyst created by University of Toronto Engineering researchers efficiently converts captured carbon into valuable products — even in the presence of a contaminant …
