Carbopora - 2nd place in the First Monetary Prize
Carbopora won 2nd place in the competition "Opportunities for integrating methane decomposition with other processes" with the proposal "Carbo4H2sieve"

The proposal entitled Carbo4H2sieve aims to demonstrate the technical and economic feasibility of employing disruptive carbon membranes for hydrogen purification produced from low-temperature methane decomposition. The success of Carbo4H2sieve may improve the bankability of 112CO2’s unique catalytic methane decomposition reactor, opening the way for a reliable and cost-effective strategy to produce CO2-free (or negative) hydrogen.”

Carbopora was founded in 2021 as a spin-off company from the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto. Having a foundation of more than 20 years of experience in research and development of Gas Separation Technologies, Carbopora’s mission is to accelerate the transition of innovative Membrane Solutions into the market.

Carbopora counts on a passionate and committed team that has a strong academic and technical background, spearheaded by Tiago Araújo and Telmo Lopes, which has all the necessary tools to create solutions that help customers address the challenges of today.

Carbopora aims to become an internationally recognized brand in the gas separation and sustainable energy markets, aiming at being a reliable partner that enables the energetic transition and makes processes/applications more sustainable, green, and productive!
