The development and deployment of processes to utilize the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) will be a central building block of a future climate-neutral and resource-efficient circular economy. Researchers from Fraunhofer IGB have developed and validated such a process chain in collaboration with partners from academia and industry in the course of the EU-funded project CELBICON.
CELBICON: Development new CO2-to-chemicals technologies
This has been achieved by combining CO2 capture, electrochemical CO2 conversion into intermediates and fermentation of these intermediates into value added chemicals. Each subsystem entered the CELBICON project as a stand-alone technology at a certain technology readiness level. During the CELBICON project these technologies will be further developed and integrated into a single, decentralized, cost-effective and robust technology platform operated at TRL5.
