Continuous carbon dioxide electroreduction to formate coupled with the single-pass glycerol oxidation to high value-added products

Abstract: CO2 electroreduction has been considered a promising alternative to simultaneously reduce CO2 emissions and produce value-added products. Among others, the production of formic acid/formate is particularly attractive. Although promising results have already been obtained in the literature, one of the recent approaches to improve the process deals with the use of an alternative reaction at the anode instead of the traditional oxygen evolution reaction (OER). In this context, this work reports, for the first time, the study of the CO2 electroreduction to formate coupled with the electrooxidation of glycerol to high-added value products where both half-reactions operate in a continuous mode with a single pass of the reactants through the electrochemical cell. Interestingly, at the cathode, similar results to those previously reported were obtained, reaching formate concentrations of about 18 g·L-1 at a 200 mA·cm-2. In addition, at the anode, promising dihydroxyacetone productions of 196 µmol·m-2·s-1 were simultaneously achieved in the output stream of the anodic compartment. These findings represent a significant step forward for the development and application of the technology.
