The EU process industry needs to become less dependent of fossils as source of carbon, and – at the same time – to reduce the greenhouse effect by decarbonizing the economy. Carbon4PUR will tackle the two challenges at the same time by transforming steel mill gas streams of the energy-intensive industry into higher value intermediates for market-oriented consumer products. The industrially driven, multidisciplinary consortium will develop and demonstrate a novel process based on direct chemical steel mill gas mixture conversion, avoiding expensive physical separation, thus substantially reducing the carbon footprint, and also contributing to high monetary savings.
Carbon4PUR is organizing a stakeholder event to bring together SPIRE projects, industrial, political and NGO stakeholders in the area of CO2 and CO utilisation. Different SPIRE and EU funded projects will present their take on the subject and the advances in the projects. A panel discussion will allow for interaction between all projects and the stakeholders.
The projects that will be present are: Carbon4PUR, FReSMe, ICO2CHEM, MefCO2, RECO2DE and Steelanol.
