HIPOWAR

HIghly efficient POwer production by green Ammonia total oxidation in a membrane Reactor The HiPowAR (HIghly efficient POwer production by green Ammonia total oxidation in a membrane Reactor) project aims at developing a power generation system that adopts a novel membrane reactor where ammonia is oxidized at high pressure using oxygen separated from air through…

EASYGO ITN

Geothermal energy will play a key role in the energy transition as part of mitigating climate change. But how to operate a geothermal system in the most efficient and safe manner? This is the most important and urgent question after a geothermal resource has been identified. EASYGO will answer that question from different perspectives, integrating…

RealiseCCUS

The vision of the project is to support the rapid and large-scale delivery of CCUS technology in the refineries sector – by 2025 – with follow-on projects in place from 2030. We expect to achieve at least a 30% reduction in CO2 capture costs for refineries and a 90% increase in the overall rate of CO2 capture. We aim to do this…

C4U

C4U: Advanced Carbon Capture for steel industries integrated in CCUS Clusters Funded by the European Union H2020 programme, C4U is a holistic interdisciplinary project addressing all the essential elements required for the optimal integration of CO2 capture in the iron and steel industry as part of the CCUS chain. This spans demonstration of two highly…

MACBETH

MACBETH – Membranes And Catalysts Beyond Economic and Technological Hurdles The MACBETH poject (Membranes And Catalysts Beyond Economic and Technological Hurdles) was funded within the H2020 European research platform. The project started in November 2019 and during its 54 months lifetime will validate industrial applicability of the Catalytic Membrane Reactor Technology through long-term operation of demo…

Social Energy

Social Energy research project The Social Energy research project (co-funded by Regione Lombardia, CUP number: E59J18000000009, June 2017 – November 2019) focuses on the sustainable production of biomethane from the anaerobic digestion of chicken manure, agricultural residues and other types of residual biomass. The primary objective of the POLIMI team is to make the biogas-to-biomethane…

SCARABEUS

SCARABEUS: Supercritical CARbon dioxide/Alternative fluids Blends for Efficiency Upgrade of Solar power plants The aim of the SCARABEUS project is to demonstrate the capability of transcritical cycles, working with CO2-based binary mixtures in CSP plants, to reduce CAPEX (the target of the project is -30%) and OPEX (target -35%) with respect to state-of-the-art steam cycles, thus exceeding…
