TU Delft researcher makes alcohol out of thin air
It may sound too good to be true, but TU Delft PhD-student Ming Ma (Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands) has found a way to produce alcohol out of thin air. Or, to be more precise, he has found out how to effectively and precisely control the process of electroreduction of CO2 to produce a wide range of useful products, including alcohol. Being able to use CO2 as a resource this way may just be pivotal in tackling climate change. His PhD defence will take place on September 14th.
