The project VALCO2-T “Validation of a prototype of CO2 – Recycling Plant in hard to abate sectors: textile industry” was awarded by MCIN/AEI /10.13039/501100011033 and European Union NextGenerationEU/ PRTR under its “Proyectos de I+D+i en líneas estratégicas, en colaboración público-privada 2021” call last december.
The project VALCO2-T aims at industrial decarbonization of the textile sector through the validation of a new electrocatalytic route, based on photovoltaic supply, in which the electro-reduction of CO2 and the oxidation of waste lead to derived products capable of reducing the carbon footprint of current processes.
Partners in the project:
- Textil Santanderina, S.L.
- University of Cantabria
- Apria Systems, S.L.
The project kick-off meeting took place in January, while a monitoring meeting was held at the University of Cantabria last March 3rd, 2023.
