Technical meeting at HERA

and visit MSW treatment plant.

On 30/09 and 01/10/2019, the partners of WPs 6 and 7 met in Barcelona making a big step forward with their tasks and coordination.

The industrial partners Shell, Cemex, ArcelorMittal and HERA presented their cases of study and define further actions heading towards the same objective. Our partner from RWTH Aachen shows a potential acceptance methodology to be followed.

On the second meeting day, a visit to the municipal solid waste (MSW) treatment plant in CTR Vallès Occidental and biogas capture, conditioning and valorization installations was possible by the nice organization of the HERA team!

The eCOCO2 project started May 1st 2019

On May 1st the eCOCO2 project started!

The project will run over four years and 12 partners from 8 countries constitute the consortium led by Agencia Estatal Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC). The consortium will work together aiming to set-up a technology for conversion of CO2, using renewable electricity and water steam, to carbon-neutral synthetic liquid fuels for their use as transport fuel, and in particular as jet fuel, at high energy efficiency, very high CO2 conversion rate and moderate-to-low cost.
The eCOCO2 project receives funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement no. 838077.
