READ MORE CATCO2NVERS CATCO2NVERS, Creating added-value chemicals from bio-industrial CO2 emissions using integrated catalytic technologies.

WHAT IS CATCO2NVERS?

The overall idea of CATCO2NVERS is to reduce greenhouse gasses emissions from the Bio-Based Industries transforming waste-CO2 from 2 bio-based industries into 5 added-value chemicals: glyoxylic acid (GA), lactic acid (LA), furan dicarboxylic methyl ester (FDME), cyclic carbonated fatty acid methyl esters (CCFAMEs) and bio-methanol, with application in the chemical, cosmetics and plastic industry, the project will process bio-based products replacing fossil material with a zero or negative greenhouse gas emissions.
