Understanding of carbon dioxide conversion catalysis and reactor design has increased greatly in recent years. Product selectivity greater than 90% and energy efficiency above 50% have been demonstrated.

However, these discoveries have yet to enable a commercial process due to difficulties integrating catalysts into a traditional electrolyzer reactor. Opus 12 incorporates novel electrode materials into an existing electrochemical reactor in order to increase the conversion of carbon dioxide at the catalyst’s surface, which will lead to high reaction rates that are stable over time.
