VITO is a leading European independent research/consultancy centre active in cleantech and sustainable development, finding solutions for the grand societal challenges of tomorrow.
“It is crucial to assess the full sustainability impact, including economic, environmental and social aspects, early in the development phase. Setting clear sustainability targets will contribute to the success of the ECO2Fuel project and the implementation of the electrochemical CO2 reduction system.“, says Dr. Miet Van Dael, Researcher at VITO.
In ECO2Fuel VITO is responsible for the design, engineering and construction of the demonstration pilot for the conversion of CO2 to methanol. The research focus of the electro chemistry team at VITO has been the development of low cost and efficient electrodes and membranes.
VITO will also be responsible for the full sustainability assessment of the ECO2Fuel value chain.
