Personnel Involved in the Project
Lifes-CO2R is a £2m project funded by the EPSRC Multidiscplinary Low Carbon Fuel scheme and consists of a consortium of 5 UK universities and several industrial parners. The consortium includes; Newcastle University, Oxford University, Sheffield University, Surrey University and the University of South Wales.
The aim of this project is to develop a breakthrough technology based upon integrated low cost bio-electrochemical processes to convert CO2 into liquid fuels for transportation, energy storage, heating and other applications. CO2 is firstly electrochemically reduced to formate using electric energy from biomass or wastes and other renewable sources
