Using a 3D printer to convert Co2.
As mentioned by co-lead author and LLNL scientist Jeremy Feaster,¨ The real advantage for using 3D printing is that we can literally have an idea, design a new reactor, print it and test it within 24 hours. That really opened the door for us to optimize the reactor design in a way that is just not available for a lot of conventional reactors. What we’ve been able to show is that you can quickly iterate on the design and cut not only the time it takes, but also the cost to make these reactors by several orders of magnitude.¨
LLNL and collaborators improve electrochemical reactor performance through 3D printing.
