Rising CO2 emissions are one of the most serious environmental problems that the planet faces today.
Yesterday, 19th September, was held the Final RECODE Workshop. After the project profile, main contents of the project and especially the actions for the development CO2 recovery and conversion were presented.
During the event the main actors of the project have taken part to discuss the actions and challenges related to the CO2 recovery with ionic liquids, the Electrocatalytic conversion of CO2 and the Conversion of CO2 into nanoCaCO3.
The RECODE project aimed at enabling a circular-economy approach within the cement industry. The target of the project was to capture the CO2 present in the flue gases from the cement industry and to utilise it to produce added-value chemicals, which can be used within the cement industry itself. The project developed all sub-processes and achieved a demonstration of the whole process chain at the Kamari cement plant (Greece) at TRL 6.

The webinar was held on Tuesday 31st of May as part of the European Green Week. The objective was to showcase and discuss about the latest innovative solutions to combat climate change, eliminate the carbon footprint in the production of green chemicals, as well as to contribute to the European Green Deal for a resource-efficient and climate-neutral Europe by 2050.

3rd Review Meeting ended. With regards to innovation for climate change a pilot units for carbon capture demonstration has been installed at TITAN Kamari Plan.
Let's look optimistic about our next demonstration campaign of Recode technology.
Partners working together for developing new technologies for recycling CO2 from Cement Industry to produce added-value additives in a circular economy approach.
Next step: demo plant installation.
Aim of the PhD school
Is it possible to scale up the system I studied during my PhD? What are the criticalities to scale up a research project from the lab bench to prototyping and to the further possible industrialization?The aim is to give a perspective on how a process is defined as sustainable and scalable, and give to the participants the tools to assess the scalability and feasibility of their project on a larger scale.
The PhD school will last one day and will consist of a session with presentations from industrial partners, mainly from EU H2020 projects on CCU, followed by a workshop in which PhD students will have the chance to present their research and receive feedback and suggestions from an industrial panel on the upscalability of their work.
Using sunlight to manufacture fuels or chemicals from carbon dioxide & water can offer sustainable manufacturing alternatives for industry.
Even with the progress made in decreasing the pollution impact of the industrial sector in Europe, still, great challenges exist in lowering the carbon footprint by progressively substituting the use of fossil fuels. A paradigm shift is needed in the manufacturing of chemical goods and high value-added products, where disruptive technologies will play a key role to achieve the climate change targets for 2050. The European Commission is investing in those technologies with the aim to develop negative emission solutions and lower Europe’s / the industry’s carbon footprint.
Thanks to Politecnico for being such nice hosts
A very interesting article was published by German journal DW about RECODE.
The interest toward the project arose after the discussions and lectures given by several REOCDE partners at CO2oling the Earth (picture above)
A press release was realized by IIT, translated and it presented the Italian Institute of Technology center in Torino and it informs the public about European Commission funding and presents project main goals. The coverage was mainly local (Piedmont region) and national, by magazines and newspapers. The news circulated are written in Italian.
