New Catalyst Converts CO2, Electricity, and Water into Monomer Plastics

RenewCO2 uses a new catalyst to convert carbon dioxide, electricity, and water into fully renewable monomers for consumer plastics. The proprietary catalyst is the first to convert CO2 into monomers with high selectivity and more than 90 percent energy efficiency. This technology offers customers a drop-in replacement monomer for their polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and other polyester production, which will offset part of the global CO2 emissions.
