Continuous-flow Photoelectrochemical Cells for Carbon Dioxide Valorization

Project description

Novel technology for CO2 valorisation

Technologies that use CO2 as a feedstock to generate valuable products play an important role in making the chemical industry more sustainable. To address the efficient utilisation of solar energy and CO2, the EU-funded PEC_Flow project aims to introduce a novel technology that produces base chemicals and fuels from non-fossil fuel resources. To achieve this, it will use original device architectures for the direct photoelectrochemical (PEC) conversion of CO2 and H2O. Four different approaches have been identified for PEC CO2 reduction: direct PEC reduction, direct PEC oxidation, PEC reduction and oxidation, and buried light absorber + EC. The project’s achievements will open the way to a more sustainable chemical industry.
