The 112CO2 Project
112CO2 project proposes socially acceptable, sustainable and easy-to-implement technology to rapidly decarbonise the energy sector at competitive prices. The aim of the project is to develop science and technology for low temperature methane decomposition reaction (also known as methane pyrolysis), which allows to produce carbon oxides-free (COx-free) hydrogen from natural gas, biogas and synthetic methane. This process mimics nature when produced large coal deposits.
of the methane decomposition technology for the energy decarbonisation sector:
100% selective reaction which enables COx-free hydrogen production
Smooth transition towards zero-emissions scenario
Negative carbon balance if biomethane is used instead fossil methane.
Carbon side-products are gaining market value and interest for novel industrial applications.
Selective hydrogenation of the carbon attaching interface with the catalyst to full recovery its activity.
Build-up an interdisciplinary community and create an innovation ecosystem to allow all relevant stake-holders to be part of the great endeavour, which is the urgent energy decarbonisation.
