Heterogenous Photo(electro)catalysis in Flow using Concentrated Light: modular integrated designs for the production of useful chemicals

Project description

Integrated modular system for producing high-value chemicals

In order to promote a low-carbon future, Europe needs to develop novel multifunctional photo(electro)catalytic materials integrated into practical and scalable reactors to maintain its technological leadership in chemical manufacturing. With this in mind, the EU-funded FlowPhotoChem project aims to develop and model an integrated modular system with improved energy efficiency and negative CO2 emissions. Based on continuous-flow heterogeneous photo(electro)catalytic reactors, the system will produce ethylene and other high-value chemicals using abundant resources such as water, carbon dioxide and light. The project’s work will result in cost-efficient, small-scale systems for intermittent operation that will meet the needs of regions with abundant solar resources and provide them with the possibility for distributed manufacturing.
