Title: Photothermal Conversion of CO2 to CH4 


Abstract: The increase in anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions has led to negative environmental effects.  However, by capturing CO2   from emission sources, it may be utilised to create valuable products, such as fuel and chemicals. This could then be used as alternative fuel and combat issues such as fossil fuel depletion. This research project focuses on the investigation of metal catalysts and catalyst supports on the conversion of CO2 to methane (CH4), with the goal to increase the efficiency and sustainability of the process.
