Electrochemical Device for Syngas and Liquid Fuels Production

Michael Penev (Inventor), Robert Braun (Inventor), William Becker (Inventor)

Research output: Patent


The invention relates to methods for creating high value liquid fuels such as gasoline, diesel, jet and alcohols using carbon dioxide and water as the starting raw materials and a system for using the same. These methods combine a novel solid oxide electrolytic cell (SOEC) for the efficient and clean conversion of carbon dioxide and water to hydrogen and carbon monoxide, uniquely integrated with a gas-to-liquid fuels producing method.
