FACING THE CHALLENGES
The sun is a valuable source of energy. It allows converting feedstocks such as carbon dioxide (CO2) and water into clean alternative fuels. These fuels are equivalent in terms of functionality to the fossil fuels, and thus they can fully replace them cutting the greenhouse gas emissions (in particular CO2).
The project develops and validates a photonic device and chemical process concept for the sunlight-powered conversion of the unwanted greenhouse gas CO2 and green H2 to the chemical fuel CH4, and to CO as starting material for production of the chemical fuel CH3OH.
Lab exchange: "transfer of lab-scale syntheses to a larger scale". A total profit for SPOTLIGHT. Within
A reactor equipped with a plasmonic catalyst to produce either methane or carbon monoxide is being developed for operation under concentrated sunlight
