Book Description

15 April 2014
Recycling carbon–dioxide at the source would not only go a long way towards minimizing the emissions, but would also motivate industry leaders to take the positive approach for CO2 reuse. Transforming Carbon Dioxide into Synthetic Fuels presents power plant engineers, process engineers, chemical engineers, electrochemists, scientists, and professors with several technologies that can be used to recycle carbon–dioxide into fossil fuel equivalent and minimize carbon dioxide emissions. The authors demonstrate how to make these conversions from alternative green energy sources, such as solar or wind–power, hydro–power or non–fossil fuel energy.

Product Description

From the Back Cover

PROMISING NEW APPROACHES TO RECYCLE CARBON DIOXIDE AND REDUCE EMISSIONS With this book as their guide, readers will learn a variety of new approaches and methods to recycle and reuse carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) in order to produce green fuels and chemicals and, at the same time, minimize CO 2 emissions. The authors demonstrate how to convert CO 2 into a broad range of essential products by using alternative green energy sources, such as solar, wind, and hydro–power as well as sustainable energy sources. Readers will discover that CO 2 can be a driving force for the sustainable future of both the chemical industry and the energy and fuels industry. Green Carbon Dioxide features a team of expert authors, offering perspectives on the latest breakthroughs in CO 2 recycling from Asia, Europe, and North America. The book begins with an introduction to the production of CO 2 –based fuels and chemicals. Next, it covers such topics as: Transformation of CO 2 to useable products through free–radical–induced reactions Hydrogenation of CO 2 to liquid fuels Direct synthesis of organic carbonates from CO 2 and alcohols using heterogeneous oxide catalysts Electrocatalytic reduction of CO 2 in methanol medium Fuel production from photocatalytic reduction of CO 2 with water using TiO 2 –based nanocomposites Use of CO 2 in enhanced oil recovery and carbon capture and sequestration More than 1,000 references enable readers to explore individual topics in greater depth. Green Carbon Dioxide offers engineers, chemists, and managers in the chemical and energy and fuel industries a remarkable new perspective, demonstrating how CO 2 can play a significant role in the development of a sustainable Earth.
