ECO2Fuel aims to design, manufacture, operate, and validate the worldwide first low-temperature 1MW direct, electrochemical CO2 conversion system to produce economic and sustainable liquid e-fuels (C1-C4 alcohols) under industrially relevant conditions (TRL7).

This will be achieved by the direct electrocatalytic reduction of CO2 using water and renewable electricity without hydrogen at temperatures and pressures below 80°C and 15 bar, respectively. Due to its compatibility to dynamic loads the ECO2Fuel system allows the effective and direct coupling to renewable energy sources (RES) or facilitating grid-balancing service.

The ECO2Fuel system is based on a genuinely unique CO2 electrolysis technology developed under the Horizon 2020 project LOTER.CO2M.

This system will be optimized to produce efficiently and selectively C1-C4 alcohols and upscaled from 5 kW with an unprecedented approach to an intermediate 50 kW pilot plant and a final industrial size demonstrator of 1MW within the ECO2Fuel project.

The produced e-fuels will be evaluated as green alternative feedstock in two of Europe’s CO2 emission heavy sectors, transport, and energy.
