On 25-26 April 2023, LAURELIN partners were hosted by the University of Manchester (UK) for their 24th month project meeting. The occasion for the presentation of each partners’ achieved results in the last 6 months, and a mid-term overall reflexion on the project’s progress.
Three of the planned reactors are now fully operative, and the first results obtained with the developed catalysts very promising. Promising conversion levels are being reached and they will be further improved in the next months.
In some of the catalysts/reactors combinations, LAURELIN partners are already improving the current literature results. This is the case for the non-thermal plasma and conventional thermal reactors with a new generation of catalysts.
In another way some new reactors have been improved their capabilities increasing the pressure limits, which are suitable for high methanol yield ratios:
In obtaining these results, LAURELIN’s partners have gathered much knowledge about the conversion mechanism of CO2 into Methanol through innovations combining the DRIFT technology and EXAF analysis.
The project has also stimulated an impressive number of peer-to-peer activities among the consortium members, fostering collaborations beyond LAURELIN-related topics. A worth-noticing success in LAURELIN’s project is the very successful collaboration with the Japanese consortium partners (the University of Tokyo and the Tokyo Institute of Technology). Since the beginning of the project, the European and Japanese researchers are very effectively collaborating on catalysts and exchanging scientific results.
LAURELIN has also engaged in clustering and other dissemination and communication activities in the past months:
The next consortium meeting will be taking place on 20-22 November in Tokyo (Japan). It will include a clustering session with LAURELIN’s sister research projects ORACLE and 4AirCraft, in the presence of the Japanese partner institutions.
