Efficient CO2 conversion over multisite Zeolite-Metal nanocatalysts to fuels and OlefinS

Project description

Converting CO2 into ingredients for fuels and plastics

Greenhouse gas CO2 could be captured from industrial waste streams and turned into a valuable raw material. Its transformation is currently hindered by the low CO2-to-product yield. The EU-funded COZMOS project will overcome this by combining two reactions into one reactor to increase the CO2 conversion rate and reduce energy consumption. The transformation of CO2 sourced from renewable energy sources will lead to the production of propane – a fuel that can be easily stored for use in heating, cooking and transportation – or propene, which forms the basis of lightweight plastics. COZMOS technology will contribute to a circular economy and the replacement of fossil fuels, leading to a decrease in CO2 emissions and reduced European dependence on fossil fuel-based resources.
