The European Horizon 2020 project Celbicon is under the direction of the Polytechnic University of Turin and brings together a consortium of 13 partners from research and industry. The aim is to establish new highly efficient & robust CO2-to-chemicals technologies available at an attractive price. The technologies are intended for decentralized use with moderate operating temperatures and low maintenance costs. Climeworks provides the atmospheric CO2 for electro-catalytic and biological transformation to base chemicals. The project is sponsored by the European Union (contract number 679050), as well as by the Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (contract number 16.0030). The overall budget is 6 million Euros.
