Enhancing Separation Efficiency in European Syngas Industry by using Zeolites. (ZEOSEP)

The project is funded by the European Research Council as a Proof of Concept (PoC).

The Proof of Concept that we propose is the development of a zeolite-based separation process to obtain carbon dioxide-neutral fuels and chemicals. The process that we plan to design is based on gas uptake and release, combining separation efficiency with low separation costs.

Universidad Pablo de Olavide

This proof of concept (PoC), hosted by UPO, aims to explore the commercial potential of the research knowledge and results developed within the previous ERC-RASPA project (ERC-StG).

The specific objetives are:

  • Technical test and process validation
  • Competitive analysis
  • Development of a business case
  • Analysis of intellectual property
  • Commercialization

The project comprises on the one hand the technical tests and process validation and on the other hand the competitive analysis, business plan and commercialization.

This project will contribute to enhance current existing technologies and new disruptive procedures, that would imply different benefits at an economic, environmental, social and research level.
