ICO2chem at Ecomondo 2019: international green economy expo

The presentation on November 9 in Rimini, Italy

9 November 2018 - 9 November 2018



The Italian Bioeconomy Strategy, adopted in April 2017, underlines the importance of the bio-based industry at the international level where Italy and Europe play a major role with their innovation potential in the field. Among the top projects presented during the conference is ICO2chem, the EU Horizon 2020 project funded through SPIRE that aims at developing a new production concept for converting waste CO2 to value-added chemicals. ICO2CHEM focuses on the production of white oils and high molecular weight aliphatic waxes with an innovative technology based on the combination of a Reverse Water Gas Shift (RWGS) reactor coupled with an innovative modular Fischer-Tropsch (FT) reactor.

The presentation titled “ICO2CHEM Project: From industrial CO2 streams to added value Fischer-Tropsch chemicals and fuels” will be held by Andrea Lanzini, Marco Marchese, Emanuele Giglio, and Massimo Santarelli during a half-day conference promoted by Ecomondo Scientific Technical Committee, Italian Minister of Economic Development and Italian Cluster of Green Chemistry, SPRING, on Friday, November 9, 2018. The location is the Biobased Industry Room at Rimini Fiera, Rimini, Italy.
