Surface-COnfined fast-modulated Plasma for process and Energy intensification in small molecules conversion

Project description

Fast-modulated plasma for energy intensification

With the global energy crisis intensifying, the need for renewable resources is greater than ever. The SCOPE project introduces a ground-breaking approach that uses renewable energy in three major industrial reactions. Non-thermal plasma could potentially convert small, low reactive molecules under near ambient temperatures and pressures. This is turn produces a marked drop in carbon footprints by as much as 90 per cent. The project aims to pursue a highly innovative approach providing for non-thermal plasma symbiosis with catalysis. SCOPE also introduces a fully new concept of nano- and micro-plasma array through a novel electrode design that generates the plasma at the catalyst surface, helping overcome long distance transport.
