New Energies for a Better and Sustainable World: Challenges and Perspectives

Published by Agência FAPESP - February 12, 2019. Nowadays with the environmental concern and the need to spread development all around the word new emphasis has to be given for different feedstock besides conventional sources as oil and coal. In this context, biomass may be a valuable feedstock for fuels, chemicals and energy as well as a better use of the available solar irradiation . As it is strongly recognized that environmental changes imply in the reduction of Green House Gas emissions, there are enormous incentives to have new paradigms and process that are not only friendly to human being, but also are attractive economically. Molecular systems offer the highest energy densities when compared to any form of electricity, however, most of the molecules used as fuel nowadays are processed by non-renewable and non-sustainable technologies. Bio-fuels technologies have proved to be a possible way to have sustainable development, however, an alternative sustainable approach would be use of solar energy (sun light) to obtain high density energy carriers such as hydrogen, methanol, etc, from abundant, low cost, and clean supplies. Solar driven routes to synthesize molecules based on photoelectrochemical (PEC) approach are alternative ways to produce liquid fuels in a sustainable concept. Energy storage devices such as metal-oxygen batteries and supercapacitors will play important role in making renewable energy accessible. In order to perform that, investigation of devices building and chemistry of the electrode surfaces and electrodes/electrolytes interfaces by means of in-situ and operando characterizations are necessary. The electrode development hinges heavily on material science; high surface area composed of metal oxide and polymer decorated carbon, which are highly stable electrodes are under developed for batteries and supercapacitors. Beyond materials science, electrodes/electrolytes interfaces investigations under dynamic conditions will probably help to elucidate chemical behavior of those energy storage processes. The large availability of nature gas world-wide turns the attention to methane, CH4, its major component, which is a cleaner energy source than petroleum. Such a scenario has renewed scientific interest in technologies that can efficiently and sustainably convert such feedstock into useful products, however, its conversion to new products is limited due to the high stability of the of the chemical C-H binding. In this context, the use of electrochemical reactions to achieve sustainable and scalable methane conversion processes that can overcome the limitations of traditional technologies are welcome. Such a challenging task requires a multidisciplinary approach involving a strong background on disciplines like electrochemistry, materials science and nanotechnology. Perspectives, and processes development towards renewable energies will be presented and discussed. Rubens Maciel Filho | FAPESP Week London.
