The four partners of the PHOTORED consortium have gathered at ICIQ six months after the launch of the project.
Members of the project “Photocatalytic CO2 reductions by green hydrogen” PHOTORED, gathered on May 11th at ICIQ to discuss the progress of the project and to plan for the following months.
The meeting started with some management updates by ICIQ’s project managers, where different kinds of day-to-day procedures were discussed and established for the project’s whole life cycle. After that, the different work-package leaders and partners presented their updates, followed by highly fruitful scientific discussions.
The goal of the project is to find new ways to selectively transform CO2 and green hydrogen into valuable chemical products through new photocatalytic technology. To do so, the consortium brings together four partners of complementary expertise: ICIQ and the Institute of Chemical Technology (ITQ, UPV-CSIC), who will work on materials preparation as well as bring their expertise in photocatalysis; the Industrial-Technological Centre from Castilla La Mancha (ITECAM), who will focus on the production of green H2; and the company DAM who will bring expertise in urban wastewater treatment and biogas facilities exploitation.
