For one day only, 4CU, a £4.7m EPSRC-funded Programme Grant, opens its doors to the CDU Community by offering a series of presentations on its latest achievements. We are aiming towards a future where CO2 is sustainably captured and converted into commodity chemicals or value-added products. The EPSRC funded project has now been operational for three years and would like to share the results of its work directly with the wider community.

The project has three major research themes, each led by a senior academic:

Capturing CO2 from air or industrial sources
‘Activation’ of the relatively unreactive CO2 molecule to enable its transformation into chemically-active intermediates before processing to final products
Thermodynamic modelling and sustainability analyses to examine the overall process viability.
