Excellent participation and interesting discussions as a start point for this project!
Valencia hosted on 21-22 May, the Kick-off meeting of the new European project, eCOCO2. eCOCO2 is a research project funded by Horizon2020 EU Research and Innovation programme.
The Agenda led by the Project Coordinator Jose M. Serra (CSIC) included the partners´ & Advisory Board (AB) members´ presentations, H2020 rules and reporting aspects, WPs objectives and parallel work groups defining quantifiable plans and goals.
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.
