The 7 technologies developed within the EnOp project will be presented in 7 parallel sessions. The project leaders will highlight the technical results as well as the identified routes towards valorization in a short pitch using a poster. After this presentation the session is open for discussion and for brainstorming about further valorization opportunities. Participants should make their choice for one of the technologies in advance.
1 Artificial leaf: pairing a solar cell and an electrochemical cell to create artificial photosynthesis
2 Plasmon catalysis: conversion of CO2 into CH4 or CO by sunlight absorbed by metal nanoparticles
3 Conversion of CO2 into high value compounds with sunlight absorbed by micro-algae in a bioreactor
4 Electrochemical conversion of CO2 to a monomer for a biodegradable plastic replacing polystyrene
5 Bio-electrochemical conversion of CO2 into C2 to C6 acids & alcohols plus their derivative esters
6 Microwave plasma reactor to convert CO2 (plus H2O or H2 or CH4) into syngas, methanol or ethanol
7 Dielectric barrier discharge and gliding arc plasma reactors combined with catalysis to convert CO2

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.
