A research paper by Prof. Takuya Goto, President of the Platform, and Dr. Yuta Suzuki, Assistant Professor at Harris Science Research Institute, has been published in Electrochimica Acta.

Takuya Goto, Professor of Graduate School of Science and Engineering and Yuta Suzuki, Assistant Professor of Harris Science Research Institute, have developed a new method for the electrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) using high-temperature molten salts.
Nations across the globe are striving relentlessly to reduce their net carbon footprint, and efforts are currently being undertaken worldwide to reduce greenhouse gases, including CO2. To this end, a research team from Doshisha University has recently developed a novel method for converting CO2 into useful and commercially viable carbonaceous materials, such as multi-walled carbon nanotubes, with the help of sustainable electrochemistry.
