MefCO₂

The EU funded MefCO₂ project brings together 8 partners throughout Europe together for one mission

Our project

The EU funded MefCO₂ project brings together 8 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.

Horizon 2020

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.

Partners

The MefCO₂ project brings together 8 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.
