Scientists Develop A Catalyst That Converts Carbon Dioxide Directly Into Ethanol

While forecasts indicate that the concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere will continue to grow, American scientists have developed an electrochemical process that converts CO2 into ethanol in an affordable and scalable way for future application in industry. Despite the potential impact of this advance, the finding has been fortuitous. This is explained
