Abstract

The increasing consumption of non-renewable energy and its contribution to CO2 emissions raise severe concerns about the subsequent effects on future energy supply and global climate change. Utilizing the abundance of solar energy resources to convert CO2 into renewable energy is arguably one of the most attractive means by which both problems can be addressed simultaneously. A copper-modified TiO2/reduced graphite oxide (RGO) composite was prepared and examined for its ability to reduce CO2. The synthesized composite exhibited properties which may provide a significant operational advantage for real world applications, employing CO2 capture and conversion to useful products. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the AWMA's 107th Annual Conference & Exhibition (Long Beach, CA 6/24-27/2014).
