  • Newsletter #1 - 25 May 2022

Carbon neutral fuels constitute a core element to reach our goals for the decarbonisation of air and maritime transport as well as Europe‘s independence on fossil energy carriers. To do so, the EU-funded EcoFuel project creates a disruptive process for production of synthetic fuel and will demonstrate it on each individual element of the value chain.

The main achievements during the first project phase:

  • An energy saving Direct Air Capture (DAC) process based on electrodialysis planned to go in pilot operation in the second half of 2022,
  • An improved electrocatalyst’s performance for CO2 reduction to ethylene,
  • New anode catalysts for the oxygen evolution reaction saving Iridium while showing greater intrinsic activity compared to the commercial benchmark,
  • A selective multistep membrane upgrading process enriching the ethylene concentration leaving the electrochemical cell to 97% ready for the next process step,
  • Potential evaluation of catalysts containing active nickel sites supported on acidic substrates for improving the thermo-catalytic oligomerization of ethylene.

These achievements are supposed to lay the foundations to develop next generation renewable fuel technologies solely based on atmospheric CO2 and renewable energy.
