  • Project Description

    CYCLICCO2R : Production of Cyclic Carbonates from CO2 using Renewable Feedstocks. The concept of CyclicCO2R is to create a process that removes the dependency on fossil fuel and increases the energy efficiency to create a net CO2 uptake in the production of cyclic carbonates by using renewables. Two routes will be explored: 1) production of glycerol carbonate methacrylate from epichlorohydrin and CO2 and 2) production of propylene carbonate from propylene oxide and propylene glycol with CO2.
