Carbon Capture – Artificial Photosynthesis

Objective

  • Demonstrate a scalable prototype for the biochemical conversion of carbon dioxide from industrial sites
  • Develop a flexible process that allows for the conversion of CO2 into a variety of value-added chemicals
  • Reduce the amount of CO2 released into the environment from industrial processes

Impact

  • Reduction of CO2 emissions will benefit the environment while reducing operating costs for industrial operations
  • Development of a scalable continuous system for the conversion of CO2 into value-added products will create a new revenue source from the use of a waste product

Key Milestones

  • Demonstrate continuous bench-top integrated prototype
  • Optimize continuous bench-top integrated prototype
  • Demonstrate scalability of bench-top integrated prototype
  • Determine economic and commercial viability
