DOE Scientists Able to convert CO2 Into Natural Gas

Scientists reveal their alternative to natural gas.

According to E&E News, the new method uses a solvent called EEMPA that was described by scientists at the Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and produced with renewably sourced hydrogen to turn captured CO2 into methane, the primary component of natural gas. By using EEMPA, the researchers said they streamlined the carbon capture process so it requires fewer materials, less energy and less money to produce natural gas, according to the study published last month in the journal ChemSusChem.
