Feasibility study towards an industrial CO2 electrolyzer design

January 2018 – December 2021
The global energy demand continues to increase and poses great challenges regarding CO2 emissions. To this end, a shift to renewable energy sources is in progress. The vast majority of this will be provided by solar photovoltaics and on- or offshore wind farms. These technologies, however, lack in production continuity and demand energy storage solutions. On the other hand CO2 emissions are even then still bound to increase at a rate of 0.9% on a yearly basis. To address these problems, this current IOF-SBO application proposes to build an industrial CO2 electrolyzer, converting CO2 into fuels and chemicals.
