The book covers advances in hydrothermal reduction of CO2 into low-carbon fuels. It offers perspectives from chemical engineering, environmental chemicals, organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry, geology and materials science. It addresses fundamentals and applications of hydrothermal chemical processes, associated materials, and technologies. It describes reduction with biomass and dissociation of water by solar energy-driven two-step process. Challenges and strategies are discussed to facilitate research and development.

Fangming Jin is a Distinguished Professor in School of Environmental Science & Engineering at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China. She earned her PhD from Tohoku University, Japan. From 2007 to 2010, she was promoted to Professor at Tongji University, China and also an Endowed Professor sponsored by Chang Jiang Scholar Program (administered by Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China). In 2010, she moved to Tohoku University as a professor, and then in July 2011, she moved to Shanghai Jiao Tong University, and received an honor of "Recruitment Program of Global Experts" Talents in Shanghai. Her research focuses on the application of hydrothermal reactions for the conversion of CO2 and biomass into fuels and chemicals, to explore a potentially useful technology for improvement of the carbon cycle by mimicking nature. She has authored more than 200 scientific publications, including peer-reviewed papers, patents and book chapters, and gave about 30 plenary/keynote/invited presentations. Prof. Jin is also a Visiting Professor at Tohoku University and a Fellow of the Graduate School of Environmental Studies at Tohoku University.
