  • Project Description

    The VALORCO project proposes to reduction of CO2 at the source, steel production. The project objectives are to develop laboratory-scale reduction and recovery of CO2 from industrial processes, to quantify the degree of profitability and implement the most promising in the form of a laboratory-scale pilot. The results of the project could then lead to the construction of an industrial pilot, then to the design of a dedicated commercial demonstrator to the most promising technology from a point of view technico-economic analysis.
