Goal of Research project

Development of CO₂ conversion high-efficiency catalyst and reaction system for the production of methanol, light olefins and liquid hydrocarbons using renewable energy

Research contents

  • Development of reaction system suitable for high efficiency CO₂ hydrogenation catalyst and intermittent power supply
  • Integrated process design of CO₂ hydrogenation catalytic reaction technology using renewable energy
  • Optimization and design of commercialization process through operation of mini-pilot plant of Power-to-Liquids (>5kg/day)

Future utilization and vision

  • By developing a CO₂ direct conversion reaction system optimized for the fluid supply of renewable energy, we have secured the next generation CO₂ direct hydrogen source catalyst and reaction technology
  • Identification of obstacle technology through process design and development, contributing to securing blank technology and securing original process technology
  • Achieved high-efficient power-to-liquids or power-to-chemicals technology that can maximize the utilization of domestic renewable energy by overcoming the existing energy-intensive and large-scale 2-stage indirect conversion system and high efficiency module conversion of CO₂ conversion reaction system.
