Direct Electrocatalytic Conversion of CO2 into Chemical Energy Carriers in a Co-Ionic Membrane Reactor

GHG emissions reduction policies to mitigate the alarming climate change can impact carbon-intensive industrial sectors, leading to loss of employment and competitiveness. Current multistage CCU technologies using renewable electricity to yield fuels suffer from low energy efficiency and require large CAPEX. eCOCO2 aims to set up a CO2 conversion process using renewable electricity and water steam to directly produce synthetic jet fuels with balanced hydrocarbon distribution. As a result, this technology will enable to store more energy per processed CO2 molecule and therefore to reduce GHG emissions. Studies on societal perception and acceptance will be carried out across several European regions. In these studies, COMM will assess, model and predict the societal perception and acceptance of the technology developed according as well as the synthetic fuels obtained from its application. Relevant actors and stakeholder groups and acceptance relevant factors will be identified and acceptance levels and trade-offs for CO2-based synthetic fuels and the production technology will be determined. Findings will contribute to guidelines and strategies for public communication, to improve awareness and acceptance of carbon conversion technologies in general, and in particular the eCOCO2 technology and its products.
