HySolChem project kick-off for solar conversion of CO2 and N2 coupled with WasteWater treatment

HySolChem is a 36-month European project (H2020), which just started in January 2021.  The kick-off meeting between the different consortium entities took place on 9th February 2021. This project was selected among a huge number of proposals submitted for FET Proactive Emerging Paradigms and Communities call (FETPROACT-EIC-07-2020), in subtopic B: Breakthrough zero-emissions energy storage and conversion technologies for carbon-neutrality

HySolChem proposes breakthroughs in development of low cost and sustainable materials and devices for solar energy conversion and storage by the production of fuels and chemicals from CO2, N2. The project is also focused on wastewater treatment plants through water pollutants oxidation.

The HySolChem Consortium consists of diverse academic and research teams (Diamond Light Source Limited, Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven) as well as three SMEs (Amer-Sil SA, Apria Systems SL, Innova SRL) specialized in catalysis methods, materials science, energy storage and water treatment. This characteristic allows HySolChem to draw the best from wide experience of the project participants coming from 5 European countries: Belgium, Italy, Luxembourg, Spain and the United Kingdom
