Carbon dioxide: Alternative solutions for conversion of captured liquefied CO2 into valuable fue

The partner organisation, Sigma Energy Storage, develops energy storage by gas compression. This technology is based on the storage of electricity from intermittent energy sources, such as wind or solar power. During the gas compression, carbon dioxide can be liquefied and extracted. This project aims to convert carbon dioxide into a valuable fuel, which could be reused to fuel the machines, and thus having a low carbon footprint on the environment. To achieve the conversion of carbon dioxide into a valuable fuel, a catalyst made of graphene and copper nanoparticles will be developed based on recent research findings and the expertise of the partner laboratory.
