Fellows Project Dioxycle

Dioxycle is a company that is converting carbon dioxide (CO₂) into valuable products through low-temperature electrolysis.

About the Project

Dioxycle’s technology provides a route to turn CO₂ into an asset rather than a pollutant. The goal is to convert CO₂, water, and electricity into renewable feedstocks, fuels, and commodities. This is undertaken using Dioxycle’s custom built CO₂-converting electrolyzers, which are designed to operate as affordably and efficiently as possible.

This technology will provide a solution for the many industries across the globe that have unavoidable CO₂ emissions in their processes. With a device that converts CO₂ into low-carbon fuels, Dioxycle will give these industries a means to generate value from their CO₂ and therefore an economic incentive to avoid carbon emissions.

Dioxycle is developing novel approaches to design and make membrane electrode assemblies for CO₂ electrolyzers. While still in the development stage, Dioxycle has demonstrated the performance of its components in converting CO₂, water, and electricity to electrofuels such as carbon monoxide and syngas. Low-temperature, efficient conversion of CO₂ to chemical fuels may enable low-carbon, long-distance transportation such as trucking, shipping, and aviation, while the conversion of CO₂ to other chemical precursors may serve as a route to renewable polymers and pharmaceuticals.
