Solar Energy for a Circular Economy

Project description

Turning sunlight and carbon dioxide into chemicals

The Coordination and Support Action (CSA) SUNRISE is a scientific and technological project ambitious in its goal to exploit solar energy and atmospheric gases such as CO2, water and nitrogen to provide a sustainable alternative to the fossil-based, energy-intensive fuels and compound chemical synthesis process. The CSA aims at providing a Science and Technology roadmap to bring in 10 years renewable fuel production to technology readiness level 9 (TRL 9) at a cost of 0.4 €/L and atmospheric CO2 photoconversion at TRL 7. The ambition is to develop a portfolio of novel technologies to convert up to 2 500 tonnes of CO2 per hectare per year and produce over several hundred tonnes of commodity chemicals per hectare per year. SUNRISE will largely contribute to making Europe the leading hub of technology innovation, closing the carbon cycle and providing enormous economical, societal and environmental benefits.
