Advanced chemicals production from biogenic CO2 emissions for circular bio-based industries
Objective:bio-based industries pave the way for converting carbon dioxide emissions into chemicals
The sustainable conversion of CO2 to value-added chemicals is considered critical to avoiding catastrophic global warming. Biorefinery industries can lead the way. In this context, the EU-funded CO2SMOS project will develop a platform of technologies to transform CO2 emissions produced by bio-based industries into a set of high value-added chemicals with direct use as intermediates for bio-based products. Specifically, it will create a toolbox combining intensified chemical conversions (electrocatalytic and membrane reactors) and innovative biotechnological solutions based on gas/liquid combined fermentation processes and organic/green-catalysts reaction processes. The CO2SMOS will contribute to the sustainability and cost competitiveness of the integrated conversion processes.
