The COZMOS project - Efficient CO2 conversion via multisite Zeolite-Metal nanocatalysts to fuels and Olefins - aims to develop a one-step process for the conversion of CO2 and H2 to C3 hydrocarbons. Through the judicious choice of CO2 hydrogenation catalysts to methanol and methanol-to-hydrocarbon catalysts, the project will exploit Le Chatelier's principle to use methanol directly for the production of C3 hydrocarbons, thus increasing CO2 conversions. Close collaboration between process development and catalyst development will provide an as-efficient process as possible. The technology will be verified at TRL5 in an industrial setting. This presentation will provide an overview of the COZMOS project including an update of the catalyst development work.
Richard H. HEYN received his Ph. D. in organometallic chemistry from the University of California, San Diego, in 1992. After two post-doctoral appointments and a brief sojourn in industry, he joined SINTEF in 1998. His main research area is carbon dioxide utilisation (CCU), specifically the development of homogeneous catalysts for the conversion of CO2 to value-added organic chemicals. He has over 70 publications (h = 29) and was Associate Editor of the Journal of Coordination Chemistry. He is currently a member of the Industrial Research and Innovation Advisory Group (IRIAG) of the Horizon Europe private-public partnership Processes4Planet (formally SPIRE). Richard is coordinator of the H2020 project C123 - Methane oxidative conversion and hydroformylation to propylene, and is Dissemination and Communications Manager of the H2020 project COZMOS - Efficient CO2 conversion via multisite Zeolite-Metal nanocatalysts to fuels and Olefins.
