sustainable carbon cycle

The Sustainable Carbon Cycle theme aims to develop energy-efficient technologies to capture CO2 from the atmosphere and from renewable sources, and convert the captured CO2 into valuable chemicals. Our research focuses on novel electrochemical methods based on new electrode materials, ion exchange membranes, and new reactor design.

The SCC theme builds on the long research experience at Wetsus in the field of applied electrochemistry for salinity gradient energy and capacitive deionization. Together with industrial and academic partners, our final goal is to boost the development of sustainable CCU technologies, by combining clean electrochemistry, low-cost capture technologies, and production of chemicals.
