Copper has something called "active sites," which is where electrocatalysis takes place: electrons from the copper surface interact with carbon dioxide and water in a sequence of steps that transforms them into products like ethanol fuel, ethylene and propanol. Ever since copper's catalyst potential was first realized in the 1980s, scientists have assumed the chemical end-product didn't matter.
"As CEO, he has initiated forward-looking strategic projects at Oxea, including the construction of the Propanol II plant in Bay City, Texas, our largest investment project to date.
Phenyl propanol, though naturally identical in the Conoarom B aromatic, can be found naturally in strawberries, styrax benzoin resin (Deutsch: Benzoetinktur), tea, peru balsam, cassia leaf oil, cinnamon oil and other sources.

This could reflect the fact that the n-propanol cannot be readily absorbed by the benzene-swollen kerogen matrix, until the chemical potential of the propanol exceeds a critical value.
They also showed that this approach works with commercial yeast strains and other types of alcohols, including propanol and butanol, which are even more toxic to yeast.
