Selective Electrochemical Reduction of CO2 to High Value Chemicals

Project description

Circular chemicals production via CO2 and renewable electricity

Electrochemical reduction of CO2 is a process that can convert waste CO2 into chemicals for the chemical industry or into fuels. It is generating growing interest as a way to simultaneously address climate change and energy security. However, significant technological improvements are required to enable the realisation of practical and cost-effective CO2 electrolysis systems. The EU-funded SELECTCO2 project is on a mission to do just that, relying on modelling from the quantum level up to the complete device to gain critical insight into the role of microscopic changes in macroscopic outputs. The team is developing novel catalysts, gas diffusion layers and membranes targeting CO, ethanol and ethylene production. Enhanced selectivity, efficiency and durability should create important market opportunities.
