For CO2SMOS consortium, unity is strength! We are glad to collaborate with EU-funded projects that shares the same interests in circular solutions and that wish to foster knowledge exchange and collaboration on common challenges. 

VIVALDI project is developing an innovative, sustainable, and cost-efficient biotechnological solution to convert off-gas emissions from bio-based Industries into CO2-based chemicals. In this way, the industry’s greenhouse gases emissions will not only be reduced but will be used as a novel feedstock, lowering the dependency on fossil fuels import and the exploitation of key resources such as energy, raw material, freshwater, and land.

CATCO2NVERS aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) from the biobased industry by developing five innovative and integrated technologies based on three catalytic processes (electrochemical, enzymatic, and thermochemical). The project’s goal is to transform waste-CO2 from two biobased industries into five added-value chemicals: glyoxylic acid, lactic acid, furan dicarboxylic methyl ester, cyclic carbonated fatty acid methyl esters, and bio-methanol, with application in the chemical, cosmetics, and plastic industries.

BioSFerA is a research project, funded by the Horizon program, proposing an innovative model based on the combination of two thermochemical-biochemical processes for the production of advanced biofuels for the aviation and maritime industries. One of the main results of the project will be the realisation of a pilot process with the two above-mentioned units for the gasification and fermentation processes and the final production of 2 barrels of advanced biofuels from second generation, together with cost-effective analysis and market introduction.

Photo2Fuel is a European research project that aims to produce biofuels from captured CO2, using only solar power as energy source. Photo2Fuel’s main objective is to convert CO2 into useful fuels and chemicals using microorganisms and organic materials. Methane and acetic acid will be produced. The project will develop a photo-micro-reactor capable of working under any atmospheric conditions and different sunlight intensities. Technologies for the separation of the main products will also be investigated.
