Closing the carbon loop with biomass-waste derived carbon nanodots


Focused on the photocatalytic reduction of CO2 to produce sustainable fuels and feedstock. To overcome the thermodynamic and kinetic challenges associated with CO2 reduction the enhancement of light is essential. The functionalisation of biomass-derived carbon nanodots will be investigated to optimise their fluorescent properties. A printable solar concentrator achieved by 3D printing or slot die coating will produce waveguides to maximise optical properties. With the motivation of this project being the contribution to the circular carbon economy by the clean conversion of waste to fuels and feedstocks.
