About Our Aim
LIFE CO2toCH4 aims at developing and demonstrating an innovative, integrated, and sustainable industrial process for simultaneous energy storage and CO2 capture and utilization (CCU). The ultimate goal of the project is to construct, test and operate (TRL8) a smart mobile unit for hybrid energy storage able to be installed in remote energy systems that commonly have low capacity (e.g., remote areas or islands that are not interconnected with the central energy grid). The technology relies on the fact that the RES (Renewable Energy Sources) will be used for water electrolysis, and subsequently the produced H2 will be biologically converted into methane (as a non-fossil biofuel) together with CO2 from exhaust gasses.
The kick-off meeting of LIFE CO2toCH4 was held virtually via the Microsoft Teams platform on Monday 18th October 2021 with the aim to establish a detailed overview of the tasks and foster engagement between the partners as well.
The first monitoring meeting of the project took place on 28th April, 2022 at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki premises in hybrid form with the participation of all partners’ representatives.
A visit to the wider area of Ptolemais where several Power Plants are located, was organised on the 29th of April, 2022. Project partners representatives had the chance to visit the premises of the Power Plant of Agios Dimitrios.
