SYNergetic design of CATalytic materials for integrated photo- and electrochemical CO2 conversion processes (Syn-Cat).

SYNergetic design of CATalytic materials for integrated photo- and electrochemical CO2 conversion processes

January 2021 – December 2024

The objective of the project is to combine photo- and electrochemistry into a photo-electrocatalytic approach to convert CO2 into methanol. The approach herein lies on developing more active and stable photo-electrocatalytic materials compared to the state-of-the-art and to improve productivity of the photo-electrochemical reactor, targeting an energy efficiency of 30% with an outlook for further upscaling.
