Sister projects

CO2Fokus project is building synergies and collaborations with other European funded projects that are developing activities related to CCU technologies, CO2 conversion and separation:

COZMOS project aims to provide breakthrough technology for the conversion of CO2 to C3 hydrocarbons fuels and chemical building blocks. The project involves industrial partners from the steel, refining, chemical and engineering sectors, research and technology organizations and universities.

eCOCO2 combines smart molecular catalysis and process intensification to bring out a novel efficient, flexible and scalable CCU technology. The project aims to set up a CO2 conversion process using renewable electricity and water steam to directly produce synthetic jet fuels with balanced hydrocarbon distribution (paraffin, olefins and aromatics) to meet the stringent specifications in aviation.

C2FUEL project’s goal is to develop energy-efficient, economically sustainable and environmentally viable CO2 conversion technologies for the displacement of fossils fuels emission through a concept of industrial symbiosis between carbon intensive industries, power production, and local economy.

The TAKE-OFF project will develop a technology based on the conversion of CO2 and renewable hydrogen to Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) via olefins as an intermediate. This technology route aims to deliver a highly innovative process that produces SAF at lower costs and higher energy efficiency compared to other power-to-liquid alternatives currently available. The TAKE-OFF route consists of capturing CO2 from industrial flue gas or Direct Air Capture which reacts with hydrogen produced by renewable electricity to create light olefins. These light olefins are subsequently chemically upgraded into SAF.

C4U project spans demonstration of two highly efficient solid based CO2 capture technologies for optimal integration into an iron and steel plant and detailed consideration of the safety, environmental, societal, policy and business aspects for successful incorporation into the North Sea Port CCUS industrial cluster in Belgium and the Netherlands.

The key objective of the MEMBER project is the scale-up and manufacturing of advanced materials (membranes and sorbents) and novel membrane-based technologies that improve current technology for pre- and post-combustion CO2 capture in power plants as well as H2 generation with integrated CO2 capture.

CONVERGE project’s aim is to develop a technology to produce methanol from agricultural waste at costs competitive to the fossil alternative, opening the way to truly bio-sourced biodiesel. In addition, CONVERGE will explore the possibility of BECCS (Bio Energy with Carbon Capture and Storage).

The REALISE CCUS project unites industry experts and scientists from different nations in a concerted drive to support the refinery sector’s decarbonisation ambitions. The research project focuses on the full CCUS chain – from CO2 capture, transport and geological CO2 storage to CO2 reuse – for specific clusters which include refineries and other industries.


The CARMOF project is based on technologies for effective post-combustion CO2 adsorption/desorption processes. CARMOF’s proposed technology is highly intensified by using optimized structured adsorbents based on high-capacity adsorption materials in combination with highly efficient and rapid joule heating desorption and integrated cooling.

KEROGREEN project aims to develop and test an innovative conversion route for the production of sustainable aircraft grade Kerosene from water and air powered by renewable electricity. The new approach and process of KEROGREEN reduces overall CO2 emission by creating a closed carbon fuel cycle and at the same time creates long-term large-scale energy storage capacity which will strengthen the EU energy security and allow creation of a sustainable transportation sector.


The BIOCOMEM will develop new membranes for CO2 separation starting from new biopolymers (bio based PEBAs) with improved functionalities and with the ambitious goal of adding value to the CO2 and gas separation market sectors.
