A Spanish technological centre is preparing a project proposal (H2020-CE-SC3-NZE-2-2018) that aims to develop new bifunctional catalysts based on metallic nano-oxides supported as well as improved and tailored zeolites to be used in the conversion process from CO2 to liquid fuels. The centre looks for companies or research institutes working in the fields of transformation of CO2 to methanol and conversion of methanol to gasoline.
A Spanish technological centre is a non-profit, private technological centre with large trajectory in international cooperation. The centre has coordinated 19 of the total 35 participated European projects from FP6 to Horizon 2020 including LIFE and ECO-Innovation programs. The main R&D fields where the centre develops its activities are nanotechnology, new materials and advanced-environment technologies.
Carbon dioxide is considered as one of the main greenhouse gases that contribute to global climate change. Concentrations of carbon dioxide have consistently been increasing in the environment due to combustion of fossil fuels and massive industrialization. Stabilizing greenhouse-CO2 gas emissions to avoid catastrophic climate change is possible by converting the promising carbon source to a range of industrially relevant products.
The centre is preparing a project proposal to the call H2020-CE-SC3-NZE-2-2018: Conversion of captured CO2. The project aims at developing new bifunctional nanotechnology based catalysts for the utilization of CO2 as a raw material in the synthesis of liquid fuels.
The organization is looking for:
- SME/Industry suppliers of CO2: industries that emit large quantities of CO2 in their production processes,
- industries suppliers of hydrogen: industries that release hydrogen as by-product in their production processes,
