large-scale low-temperature electrochemical CO2 conversion to sustainable and climate-neutral e-fuels & chemicals

ECO2Fuel is a EU project under Horizon2020 (Green Deal). It aims to design, manufacture, operate, and validate the worldwide first low-temperature 1MW direct, electrochemical CO2 conversion system to produce economic and sustainable liquid e-fuels.

Green & smart solutions
To the most complex challenges

Carbon is not just a component of life, it also makes up our contemporary world and drives innovations. Carbon is responsible for almost everything from the fuels we run our cars on, the cushy spring in our running shoes, your favourite electronics, building materials, and electric car parts. Yet, the problem we face today is that we use mainly fossil fuels as the primary carbon source, emitting CO2 and accelerating climate change. The ECO2Fuel project will change this paradigm by deriving carbon from CO2 instead of fossil fuels.

The Technology We Work On​

By replacing fossil carbon in fuels and chemicals with recycled carbon from CO2, we can remove emissions from thousands of essential items, set new standards for the industry, and prevent further CO2 emissions.

Membrane Characterization and Electrode Optimization

The membrane is the heart of the cell and responsible for separating the anode and cathode and transporting anions between the two electrodes. The ion-conducting properties of the membrane are a decisive factor in the performance of the electrolysis cell and also susceptible to chemical or mechanical degradation.
For these reasons, comprehensive characterization of the performance and stability properties is essential.

Two eCCU pilot plants at one site

A raving success: Trilateral Online Workshop on Carbon Capture and Electrochemical Utilization of CO2 counts 424 participants from all over the world. Without a strong contribution from all economic sectors the net-zero climate protection targets cannot be achieved. Fossil feedstock for the chemical industry and fossil fuels for long-distance transport must be substituted. Therefore, the reduction of CO₂ emissions by carbon capture and utilization (CCU) and an intersectoral carbon cycle economy will be crucial for the transformation of the supply systems in the future.
