With the ability to create valuable organic chemicals from CO2 emissions using renewable energy sources, Liquid Light’s process provides an attractive alternative revenue source for CO2 emitting industries. Offered as a licensable technology, industries could potentially produce more than 60 different organic chemicals that contribute to producing consumer goods like water bottles or materials like polyester.

Using power from renewable sources like wind power, Liquid Light’s electro-chemical technology converts CO2 into organic chemicals like ethylene glycol and water as primary byproducts. With an artificial process similar to photosynthesis, the conversion to organic chemicals occurs without the use of any agricultural resources.
