Reducing CO2 while creating useful products


About the research 

"The greenhouse gases we pump into the air throw a thick blanket over the entire planet. By putting these to good use, my work aims to help remove this blanket of carbon dioxide, leading to a cooler future for all of us." Watch Divyansh Khurana (Imec - KU Leuven) explain how he wants to use tiny materials, called semiconductors, to convert CO2 (and water) into useful products.

Longer and hotter summers, ooof, it feels as if the planet is surrounded by a very thick blanket all throughout the year. A physics graduate from India, Divyansh Khurana moved to Paris for a Masters in Nanomaterials, in a quest to find smarter ways to remove the blanket of CO2 and reverse the effects of climate change. For his Ph.D. at imec-KU Leuven, he now delves into the world of semiconductors - the materials that power our phones and laptops - to find an innovative solution.
