Introduction to Development of new technologies for CO2 capture and conversion.

CO2MPRISE is an acronym for this research project. It stands for “CO2 absorbing Materials Project _ RISE”. The objective of CO2MPRISE is to find an inexpensive, effective and robust solution for significant CO2 reduction from industries and civil transport. It represents one of the main and fascinating challenges proposed to the scientific community in the next 10 years and is considered as a key pillar of HORIZON 2020.

The aim of CO2MPRISE is to bring together subject matter experts from the academic and non-academic sectors to develop new technologies in CO2 capture and conversion field. The scientific and technical objectives of the project will include the study of i) Olivine-based materials to convert carbon dioxide to methane and test its potentialities under practical conditions; ii) Photocatalytic reduction of CO2 by solar radiation; iii) The not-yet explored metal-hydrides, instead of hydrogen gas, to efficiently convert CO2 to hydrocarbons in the Fisher-Tropsch reaction activated by mechano-chemical input; iv) robust, inexpensive and free-metal solid sorbent membrane based on multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) and Graphene-based sorbents, for CO2 capture from large point sources.

CO2MPRISE aspires to reach these ambitious results through a common solid knowledge basis arising from a balanced number of secondments that guarantee a cross-sectorial synergy between recognized research centers, industry and academia. Along this line, training, workshops and seminars will be conducted with the aim to impart to each partner of this consortium the fundamental skills mainly based on the technical aspects, the social challenges involved in this sector, and last but not least, market capacity. Particular attention will be also given to organize the strategy work of all activities in specific processes in order to finally introduce the results achieved into the international market. The project foresees intensive exchange of staff between the involved partners, which are from both the academic and non-academic sector. Also, staff exchange with a partner organization outside the EU is planned.

This MOOC is mainly based on videos that will be complemented by other free resources such as abstracts, quizzes or recommended literature. Each author has provided information on their modules or chapters, which we will see below.

The title of the MOOC, ”The development of new technologies for CO2 capture and conversion”, resembles the general approach of the activities implemented in the CO2MPRISE project, and the goal of the course,which is to present to the interested audience a picture of thedifferent issues, challenges, questions and problems now open in the scientific and technological investigation of CO2 related themes.

CO2MPRISE project has received funding from the European Union’s H2020 Programme under grant agreement no 734873
