Turning CO/CO2-containing industrial process gas into valuable building blocks for the polyurethane industry

Transforming the chemical industry from finite fossil to renewable carbon resources displays one of the major challenges of the 21st century. At the same time the steel industry needs to reduce the CO2 emissions of the blast furnaces to decrease its environmental impact. Turning this lose–lose into a win–win situation is the basic concept of the EU-funded Carbon4PUR project. The project tackles a first concept of how the carbon content of blast furnace gas (BFG), a CO/CO2-containing process gas from steel production, could be utilized in a sequence of selective chemical conversion steps to produce high value intermediates for the polymer industry. In this context, CAT Catalytic Center is contributing with the development of novel catalysts at the chemical heart of the developed chemical technology.

Power-to-X technologies

DreamPolyolsConti

With Power-to-X technologies, renewable energy can be converted into climate-friendly plastics and fuels, gases and chemicals. This makes them indispensable for the achievement of the climate objectives. As a part of the Kopernikus projects initiative the sub-project Dream Polyols Conti is aiming for the production of sustainable polymers enabled by the use of power-to-X technology. In this context, CAT Catalytic Center is involved in the development of novel, sustainable polyol and NCO-prepolymer building blocks.
