Ionic Liquids for Capture and Electrochemical Reduction of Carbon Dioxide into Chemical Products (CO2-IOLICERP)

The project targets to develop and demonstrate novel efficient and cost-effective materials and processes for post combustion capture of CO2 from flue gas and integrate the new processes with novel electrochemical processes for conversion of captured CO2 to produce CO and methanol. The overall objective of the project is to enable using CO2 as feedstock for industrial value chains, thereby establishing a circular economy by addressing the global warming issue cost-effectively. The overall workplan will be the development, testing and integration of two main processing units: the unit for capture of CO2 from emitted flue gas with the CO2 electrochemical conversion and recycling unit. The project will use CO2 separated from flue gas as a feedstock for the electrochemical reduction of captured carbon dioxide, introducing efficient valorization, cascading and management of waste streams applicable to multiple energy intensive sectors. The project will develop and operate a novel electrochemical lab-scale unit, demonstrating the full value chain from the negative value flue-gas to the electrochemical products carbon monoxide and methanol.
