Upscale the Most Promising Materials for CO2 Capture
GENESIS develops and upscales some of the most promising material for CO2 capture and demonstrate their performance, durability and reliability in industrial environments. The materials are IPOSS (polyPOSSimide hybrid organic-inorganic) and MOF (Metal-organic framework) membrane systems that have demonstrated great performances for CO2 capture.
Develop Mixed Matrix membranes that capture at least 90% of CO2
Demonstrate CO2 capture system in Cement and Steel industry
Recover CO2 at a cost of 15€/MWh
The Genesis project aims to capture carbon dioxide (CO2) from the cement and steel industry to make it more sustainable and environmentally friendly. It develops polymeric and ceramic membranes using a multilayer strategy to obtain membranes capable of selectively separating CO2 from other gases such as nitrogen and hydrogen.
The membranes are then grouped and confined inside a module, which will be used for the actual gas recovery. Achieving enhanced gas separation properties by using MOFs (Metal-Organic Framework) and POSS (Polyhedral Oligomeric Silsesquioxane) nanostructures.
MOF mixed matrix membranes allows separating up to 90% of the CO2 from the other gases. While the iPOSS (polyPOSSimide hybrid organic-inorganic) ceramic membranes reach separation levels of CO2 /H2 up to 98%.
