SunCoChem project celebrates its 1st General Assembly
SunCoChem partners have met online for the project’s 1st Consortium Meeting on 23rd October 2020.
During the meeting, partners have reviewed the project tasks done during the past 6 months and discussed next steps and activities to provide the chemical industry with an alternative to produce oxo-chemicals without using raw materials derived from carbon or oil.
The General Assembly included seven different sessions focused on the main ongoing topics and work packages of the project that required interaction and discussion across the whole SunCoChem consortium.
The SunCoChem project has the objective to develop a photoelectrocatalytic tandem reactor (TPER) to manufacture chemical products from renewable energies based on CO2, water and sunlight, integrating the capture and conversion of CO2 in a single dispositive.
The photoelectrocatalytic tandem reactor (TPER) developed by the project will be validated in an industrial plant where the conversion of anthropogenic CO2 emissions will be carried out to produce 3 value-added chemicals, which until now have been created using fossil fuels , and demonstrate that CO2 can be reused as a raw material in a sustainable and competitive way.
