On May 7th 2019 the EnOp CO2 Reuse Conference themed ” Implementing CO2 as Carbon Source: Success Stories and Future Technologies” has been held. At this interactive meeting the academic world met with corporates to discover how they can collaborate in using new technologies. People that are interested in renewable energy, energy storage or exciting new chemistry with CO2 and want to make a difference?
The carbon cycle on our planet is disrupted as the natural system is unable to deal with the huge amounts of CO2 that are emitted due to our lifestyle. Restoring the carbon cycle is essential to create a sustainable environment on planet earth. Use of CO2 as a carbon source while storing renewable energy in this process, could contribute substantially.
New technologies that can handle large amounts of CO2 are needed to restore the carbon cycle. Where do we stand in developing such technologies? The Interreg project EnOp aims to bring some of these technologies to a next stage in its development. During the CO2 Reuse conference we will update you on all interesting opportunities for the nearby and long term future.
The technologies that we have studied are:

Eleven partners participate in the ‘EnOp’ project: four from The Netherlands (Brightlands Chemelot Campus, TNO, TU Eindhoven, DIFFER), six from Flanders (KU Leuven, Ghent University, University of Antwerp, Hasselt University, VITO, Thomas More) and one from Germany (University RWTH Aachen-DWI). Brightlands Chemelot Campus is leading the consortium.
