CO2 and energy, € 1.5 million for research at the Technical University of Turin
The Department of Applied Science awarded by the European Research Council
The scientific project of the Applied Science and Technology Department at the Technical
University of Turin, called “CO2Cap,” was awarded by the European Research Council with the ERC
Starting Grant and a 1.5-million-euro funding.
The project carried out by researcher Andrea Lamberti aims to reduce the pollution with CO2 by capturing it in a device capable of purifying carbon dioxide for its subsequent reuse and at the same time recovering energy with a sustainable process.
“The research – reads the university’s website – has focused in recent years on two issues that have merged into the project: on the one hand, nanotechnologies and nanomaterials for energy and, on the other, energy storage through supercapacitors, a sort of batteries that accumulate energy, although based on a different principle than that of classic batteries.”
