This work deals with a new technology development for conversion of carbon dioxide to useful value added products. The focus is on how to make the process economically feasible so that it can be viable commercially. A multi level approach, where material property investigations (catalysts, degradation mechanisms etc.), bench scale continuous testing and semi-pilot scale testing, were carried out together so that the different factors affecting process viability can be evaluated and improved. This work shall present the advances made in this technology and is looking to seek collborations from interested parties at any possible stage i.e. pre-, post-, or even on a specific part of this process for CO2 conversion. Other related enquiries and collaborations in waste (CO2) utilization are also welcome.
