Carbon-based energy carriers and chemical products are indispensable components of a sustainable future. Defossilisation of the production of fuels and chemicals is possible by chemical conversion of carbon dioxide with hydrogen produced from renewable resources. Catalysis is a key technology to enable such “Power-to-X” concepts. New synthetic pathways and novel catalysts are researched at the MPI for Chemical Energy Conversion with a focus on fundamental understanding of the underlying complex molecular processes.
