Abstract

The increase in CO 2 in the atmosphere that can be attributed to the imbalance the rapid consumption of fossil fuels caused by human development. One of efficient methods for reducing the amount of CO 2 should involve the rapid conversion of CO 2 into fuels and chemicals. Hydrothermal reactions play an important role in the formation of fossil fuels, e.g., the conversion of dissolved CO 2 into hydrocarbons abiotically in the Earth's crust, and have shown excellent potential for the rapid conversion of a wide variety of biomass into value-added products. Thus, if the geologic formation of fossil fuels in nature could be combined with the hydrothermal methods being studied for material conversions, an efficient scheme could be realized to recycle carbon and produce chemicals. In this paper, some recent advances in our researches on the hydrothermal conversion of CO 2 into chemicals and fuels are reviewed.
