Exploiting CO2 as a resource: Laborelec’s involvement in KIC-Climate’s EnCO2re project

Laborelec will contribute to the recently approved KIC-Climate EnCO2re programme which will further broaden the approach for CO2 re-utilisation. Under the project management of Bayer MaterialScience,  technology leaders as well as leading European universities and institutes (Imperial College London, Delft University of Technology, Chalmers University of Technology, Laborelec, Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies, RWTH Aachen, TU Berlin, AkzoNobel) have joined forces in order to leverage a broad utilisation of CO2 as feedstock for chemical value chains. Laborelec’s involvement is mainly related to the evaluation of the CO2 stream categorisation and possible treatment and purification technologies that may be required for its conversion. More info:

FP7 project ELECTRA

Laborelec participates in the FP7 project ELECTRA “European Liaison on Electricity Committed Towards long-term Research Activities for Smart Grids”

Beginning of November, the FP7 project ELECTRA “European Liaison on Electricity Committed Towards long-term Research Activities for Smart Grids” was officially approved by the European Commission. ELECTRA responds to a FP7 call for integrated European research.

The research project will run during 4 years and will preview among other things the control systems needed after 2035, when renewable and decentralized production will cover more than 50% and when a significant electrification of the charges will become a fact.

Laborelec cooperates with more than 20 renowned research institutes under the EERA institution (European Energy Research Alliance) and is one of the two Belgian partners in this research consortium.

The project is supported by 16 national funding agencies (under which the Flemish government department of Economy Science and Innovation) as well as by ENTSOE, EDSO4SG and ETP SG, and some international organizations, responsible for the distribution and exploitation of the results.
