  • Project Description

    This project aims to realise concrete strategies that are can perform the direct use of CO2 for the production of dimethyl ether (DME) by CO2 hydrogenation in a single-step process. The central focus will be on producing tangible improvements to the industrial processes in terms of energy efficiency and cost saving, by optimising the most promising conventional catalyst systems as well as innovative carbon-based ones. To this end, the catalyst will be printed and assembled as multi-channel arrays into modular, mobile prototype demonstration units.
