The EU funded MefCO2 project brings together 9 partners throughout Europe together for one mission: to demonstrate the economic feasibility of valorising captured CO2 by turning it into a versatile platform chemical and renewable fuel such as methanol using hydrogen produced from renewable energy surplus.
MefCO₂ aims to produce green methanol as energy vector from captured CO2 and hydrogen produced using surplus renewable energy. The technology is being designed in a modular intermediate scale, with the aim of being able to adapt it to varying plant sizes and gas composition.
The MefCO2 project is funded by the European Commission within Horizon 2020, the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020) – in addition to the private investment that this money will attract.
H2020 aims to drive development in Europe and to create a sustainable economic growth.
The MefCO2 project brings together 9 partners from 7 European countries and different places in the value chain to make MefCO2 a reality. Click on the logotype of our partners for more information.
