TECHNIQUE DOUBLES CONVERSION OF CO2 TO PLASTIC COMPONENT
Lincoln, Nebraska, May 22, 2018 – Fossil fuels have long been the precursor to plastic, but new research from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln and European collaborators could help send that era up in smoke — carbon dioxide, to be exact.
Produced almost entirely from burning fossil fuels, carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere have risen from 280 parts per million in the pre-industrial era to about 410 PPM today. That trend, combined with the finite supply of fossil fuels, has pushed researchers to explore methods for producing plastic from CO2 rather than petroleum or natural gas — recycling CO2 just as plastic is now.
“The conversion of CO2 is very important to help offset the emissions that lead to global warming and other detrimental processes in the environment,” said Alexandrov, assistant professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering.
