International cooperation for selective conversion of CO2 into METHAnol under SOLar light

Project description

Lighting up the conversion of CO2 into methanol

With several advantages as a carbon-neutral fuel, methanol is an attractive energy vector that can be produced using only renewable resources. In this context, the EU-funded METHASOL project will create a sustainable and cost-efficient production process that relies on selective visible-light-driven gas-phase CO2 reduction, with a solar energy to methanol conversion efficiency of 5 %. The consortium consists of 14 partners from the EU and Associated Member States (China and the United States), including international researchers on artificial photosynthesis. The project will achieve a pioneering combination of a CO2 reduction reaction system based on a metal-organic framework and a graphitic carbon nitride for photocatalytic oxygen evolution reactions, through a Z-scheme heterojunction.
