<br/>The rise of CO2 concentration in the atmosphere is a leading cause of global warming. Utilizing CO2 ob- tained from point sources, such as chemical industries, as a feedstock to produce high energy density fuels and chemicals could mitigate the emission of CO2 as well as provide various economic bene- fits. One promising technology is the...

According to International Energy Agency (IEA), the demand for high value chemicals (HVC) will increase by 60% to a total of 400 Mt/year by 2050, leading to an increase of 30% in direct CO2 emissions. However, the Paris agreement forces the sector to reduce its emissions by 90-100% in 2050 compared to 1990. This induces the need for a more...

In the effort against climate change the company ZEF has as its target to make methanol (CH3OH) out of atmospheric CO2; a process which can be seen as power-to-fuel and/or power-to-x. In light of the developmental cycle within ZEF a new reactor with an increased size and enhanced mass manufacturability is required. The...

At the moment, Tata Steel emits 12.6 Mt CO2 per year while producing 7.2 Mt steel per year. To reduce these emissions, Tata Steel has decided to replace the blast furnaces with direct reduced iron (DRI) plants in combination with reducing electrical furnaces. The DRI plants will first operate with a 100% natural gas feed. Whenever green hydrogen...

To produce an alternative fuel like Methanol from scratch, on a miniature scale- the reactants CO2 and H2O are sourced locally. Zero Emission Fuels B.V. (ZEF) does this by collecting carbon dioxide from the air, via carbon capture techniques and compressing it to high pressure of 55bars. As a consequence of humidity inside the captured CO2,...

This report explored the feasibility of dechlorination of mixed plastic waste systems using a low-temperature pyrolysis process. Decomposition of plastics into chlorides is of interest due to the damage these can pose to both the process system, products, and the environment. Therefore, dechlorination of mixed plastics waste streams is essential...
