Converting to a methanol economy ?
« on: August 02, 2014, 10:08:34 PM »
There are quite a few new catalysts to directly convert CO2 to methanol, but this new one is efficient enough to use waste heat from an engine or industrial process to perhaps re-capture in-situ.

There is also a neat thermalelectric converter that uses the edge of benzene or zigzag graphene to convert heat directly to electricity. Studies were done at UofAz.
