As part of a new crowdfunding initiative at University of Colorado Boulder, students Chern-Hooi Lim, Yu-Ching Kuo, Alan Aguirre with project advisor Professor Charles Musgravee are working to raise $10,000 to build a photocatalyst which will convert carbon dioxide into liquid fuel.
Crowdfunding is the practice of sourcing small contributions from a large number of people to provide funding for a particular project or campaign. The CO2 “recycling” project is one of eight projects in a pilot online fundraising platform that allows CU-Boulder individuals and organizations to create and share fundraising campaigns with the community.
