CO 2 and Renewable Electricity into Chemicals: Formic Acid Production from Coal Flue Gas

Formic acid is a primary feedstock for the bioprocessing industry, making it a new big formic acid application. Dioxide Materials, Inc. , has developed a system that converts CO 2 to pure formic acid with a three-compartment CO 2 electrolyzer. As a source of CO 2 using flue gas from a coal fired power plant as a source of CO 2 in particular, the aim is to determine how to operate the electrolyzer for the conversion of CO 2 into formic acid. The research will include investigating how the electrolyzer's behavior changes with low CO 2 level and impurities, innovating new cell designs that can still operate with feedstocks with low CO 2 content and impurities, testing simulated flue gas in the electrolyzer unit, and filtering to remove any impurities that occur.

Application of Machine Learning to Improve Biobased Glucaric Acid Production - CRADA 504

The Agile Biofoundry is a multi-national lab group funded by the DOE Bioenergy Technologies Office that has developed a biofoundry that facilitates rapid deployment of bioproducts into the marketplace. Glucaric acid has the ability to demonstrate how such bio-based materials can be of major benefit to the U. S. economy, due to its broad range of uses.

Electrochemical CO 2 Utilization: Scalable System Operation for Formic Acid Production

CO 2's electrochemical reduction has increased exponentially in recent years. FA can be produced electrochemically from a proton source, requiring less energy input and fewer reaction steps than the traditional Kemira process. The Center for Applied Energy Research at the University of Kentucky is currently investigating reactor designs to address the challenges involved with electrochemical CO 2 conversion to FA [5]. The current reactor system incorporates an organic-based charge carrier that shuttles CO2 down to FA; novel electrode materials to reduce large voltages and improve conductivity; and a flow system that does not only allow for the volumetric scaling-up of both charge carrier and catalyst, but also decouples the charger carrier and FA production processes to maintain the catalyst's stability due to overpotentiality.
