Hoogland, Maxime (author)
CO2 electrolysis to form CO with the use of electricity from renewable sources is a promising technique in closing the carbon cycle. Via the electrochemical reduction CO2 can be converted into different hydrocarbon products. These value-added products are for example CO, HCOOH, CH3OH or C2H4. The direct electrochemical route of CO2 reduction is...

In recent years, carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases have been emitted on a large scale, leading to global warming, rising of sea levels, and causing many ecological problems. The use of fossil fuels is the chief source of large-scale emissions of CO2, but the reliability and economy of fossil fuels make it difficult for other energy...

Kroes, Matthijs (author)
<br/>The rise of CO2 concentration in the atmosphere is a leading cause of global warming. Utilizing CO2 ob- tained from point sources, such as chemical industries, as a feedstock to produce high energy density fuels and chemicals could mitigate the emission of CO2 as well as provide various economic bene- fits. One promising technology is the...

Coppen, Jasper (author)
Due to global warming, there is a rising demand for green energy storage and green fuels. $CO_2$ reduction can help mitigate these demands by storing energy in chemical bonds, thereby creating fuels that are relatively easy to use and store. In this way, a new carbon cycle can be created. Catalyst materials play a key role in improving the...

Alkali-activated Materials (AAMs), including those classified as geopolymer, are obtained through the reaction between a solid precursor and an alkaline solution. Compared with ordinary Portland cement (OPC) binders, these materials maintain comparable mechanical properties but have the advantage of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and...

Electrochemical CO<sub>2 </sub>reduction may present a solution to close the carbon cycle and to utilise CO<sub>2</sub> emissions. However, for this technology to have a significant impact, it has to be successfully implemented on an industrial scale. Numerical simulations can aid with the study of process parameters and...

In 2018, the construction sector was responsible for 39% of the worldwide energy and process-related carbon dioxide emissions (Global Alliance for Buildings and Construction et al., 2019). This is partly due to the embodied carbon, which represents the carbon emissions related to building construction and material production (LETI, 2020). While...

A “community of knowledge” of representatives of the housing sector in the Netherlands investigated the impact of the behaviour of residents in sustainable housing, both newly constructed and renovated stock. For this, grey scientific data were used, i.e., data and reports from non-university agencies reflecting research commissioned by civil...

Continued advancements in the electrochemical reduction of CO 2 (CO 2RR) have emphasized that reactivity,selectivity, and stability are not explicit material properties butcombined effects of the catalyst, double-layer, reaction environ-<br/>ment, and system configuration. These realizations have steadily built upon the foundational work...

Within the electricity driven conversion methods, electrocatalysis has been assessed to be the closest to commercialisation. This can only be realised, if the system efficiency is increased in terms of the reaction rate, onset potential and/or selectivity. Current research has shown that, apart from the more widely investigated routes to improve...

Electrochemistry can be a useful technology to enable the transition toward renewable energy sources and to prevent further climate change. Some electrochemical applications are already industrially implemented, like water electrolysers, while others, like CO2 reduction, need further development to be industrially competitive. Here, a bipolar...
