The catalyst that turns carbon dioxide into fuels

CO2 problem

Nowadays, as we know that the carbon dioxide level in the atmosphere has been constantly increasing which will get us in trouble in the future. If the carbon dioxide increases then the oxygen level will going to decrease eventually. It will lead to hard to breathe for human beings. Therefore scientists are trying to convert this carbon dioxide into different forms such as fuels. Using catalysis saves us from the CO2 problem.

As we know that the CO2 molecule is one of the stable molecules and to convert it to something else will need a special catalyst. Through the different researches, it is proved that when it comes to the special catalyst for converting carbon dioxide is known for their absence of stability. They will lose their catalyst properties in a very little amount of time. Which will not go to hold the catalysis of carbon dioxide for a longer time.

Use of perovskites as a catalyst:

Most of the researchers have studied the nature of the perovskites mineral and it has been used in the solar cell as the anode. But it is not mostly used for its catalytic property. Through the research, some of the scientists have succeeded to form the perovskites catalyst to convert the CO2 in the fuels. With this reaction, you will get the catalyst that turns carbon dioxide into fuel. This type of research will also solve the problem of an increase in the level of carbon dioxide in the future.

You should know that perovskites are the stable catalyst and if you compare them to another special catalyst then they will cost you relatively lower than others. Because of its affordable cost, it can be used for industrial purposes.

fuel production

Build-in fuel production in the industries:

This is one of the evolved and well-researched catalyst reactions that will help us to decrease the level of CO2 in the atmosphere. A new catalyst for lower CO2 emissions will help you to solve the problem. If you want to try this experiment then you have to concentrate the CO2 in a larger amount. Therefore it will be easy to use the new catalyst in the industrial sector where the CO2 emission is more. It will be easier to convert the CO2 into the file in the industrial plant.

You just have to build an additional reactor on the side of the existing plant which emits the CO2. After that, you have to convert the CO2 into CO first and then the catalyst will convert it into synthetic fuels. Perovskites are the best catalyst to convert carbon dioxide into fuels.
