Team role and expertise in the project

IoLiTec will be mainly engaged in the development and manufacture  of large amounts of ionic liquids for the CO2 capture process. Those will be based on a mixture of hydrophobic, stable ionic liquids with lower viscosity exhibiting mainly physical sorption. A fraction of these will have amine functionalities in order to promote chemical sorption. The production process with involve both batch and continuous flow processes.  The company will also contribute to the design of the IL-based CO2 sequestration and purification units.
