Our Mission

Our mission is to design and set up an environmentally friendly and cost-effective system that turns carbon dioxide into formic acid.

The Technology

We are developing a commercially viable, aqueous triple compartment electrolyzer, a chemical reactor using an electrical potential to drive the conversion of CO2 into formic acid. We have chosen this technique in order to reach the optimal conversion efficiency and cost-effectivity. With an eye on the ongoing energy transition, electricity seems to be the most sustainable future energy source.


The Team

We work in an interdisciplinary team of TU/e and Fontys students from different faculties. We are affiliated with TU/e Innovation Space and the university's Honors Academy.
