The CLUSTER project is a German-based consortium looking at the impacts of impurities in CO2 streams captured from different emitters in a regional cluster on transport, injection and storage. The key question they seek to answer being: How pure do CO2 streams have to be for accessing larger CO2 pipeline networks and which aspects other than CO2 stream composition need to be considered to ensure safe transport, injection and storage operation with technically and economically acceptable efforts? To this end the FReSMe project will be presenting itself at their workshop on the 27th April 2017. FReSMe will bring the CLUSTER project up-to-date with some of the latest expectations of technology development for CO2 capture, and the FReSMe project will learn of the latest expectations from the transport, injection and storage side for the captured CO2.

What began in 1997 as an annual meeting for the Dutch materials science community, existing of a dozen researchers, students and our industrial partners has blossomed into an invigorating event about innovations in materials.
Hosted by the National Institute of Chemistry in Slovenia, the FReSMe partners organised a workshop in which the different procedures and technologies for capturing and utilising excessive CO2 for further use in the industry were presented.
FReSMe was presented as a flagship project at "Aportando Valor al CO2" (adding value to CO2) congress organised by the Spanish CO2 Technology Platform (PTECO2) and SusChem Spain, the European Technology Platform for Sustainable Chemistry.
The conference was focused on the application of Life Cycle Thinking (LCT) methodologies to support climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies. During the two days, a lot of studies concerning the application of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), Life Cycle Costing (LCC) and Social LCA methodologies in the fields of energy, circular economy and construction were presented.
FReSMe was part of the workshop “Paving the way towards clean energy and fuels in Europe” held during the European Biomass Conference and Exhibition (EUCB) in Lisbon. During the workshop, representatives from the EC presented the different programmes and policies supporting R&I in Europe and projects participated in several roundtables. FREsMe joined the “Advanced biofuels value chain” roundtable where we had the chance to present the outcomes of the project so far and discuss with the rest of the project coordinators the challenges ahead when moving pilot results into full commercial and the role of the EC in this transition.
With around 1,000 participants in the last editions, the Biennial Meeting of Chemistry has become an essential event for the Spanish chemistry community because, in addition to disseminating the most relevant results of the chemical research carried out in this country, it also gives the opportunity to interact with a large number of internationally renowned researchers attending as speakers.
The Italian CRE community has continuously further contributed to the field of Chemical Reaction Engineering. In this occasion, our colleagues from the National Institute of Chemistry (NIC) - Slovenia, prepared and presented the Microkinetic Modeling of CO2 Hydrogenation to Methanol on Perovskite Catalyst Materials poster that can be downloaded here
Our related project MefCO2 is coming to an end! The final dissemination event took place in Germany at RWE’s Coal Innovation Center, where the project results were presented and guided visits to the pilot plant have been organised.
The methanol unit deployed in the MefCO2 pilot plant is owned by CRI and will be the transported to Lulea (Sweden), where the FReSMe pilot will be located, as soon as the MefCO2 project finishes.
The "Total Energy" Workshop has been held traditionally in Trieste every two years since 1987. This year, the Workshop is about recent progress in electronic structure methods and their applications. Our colleagues from the National Institute of Chemistry (NIC) – Slovenia, prepared and presented "The role of surface defects in the methanol synthesis pathway on Cutype catalysts: DFT and kMC study".
Politecnico de Milano organised a workshop in Milan attended by more than 50 people from 22 affiliations. Topics such as the climate change, carbon capture technologies, the progress beyond the FReSMe project and the future of CCUS were covered during this workshop.
SPIRE will host the EU Process Industry Conference in Brussels on the 19th September. This event will bring together all SPIRE projects with the aim of reviewing different solutions that are being explored to achieve a more competitive European Industry in the near future. FReSMe project will be presented in the session dedicated to Valorisation of different energy sources.
The mission of SPIRE is to ensure the development of enabling technologies and best practices along all the stages of large scale existing value chain productions that will contribute to a resource efficient process industry.
The 9th "Trondheim Conference on CO2 Capture, Transport and Storage" will be held June 12th 14th, 2017, in Trondheim - Norway. The conference is organized by NCCS – International CCS Research Centre under auspices of NTNU and SINTEF.
The Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA) has invited FReSMe project to the clustering event of H2020 projects focus on CCSS/CCU and alternative fuels. The meeting will be held at INEA premises. The event will include the presentation of each project and the work in thematic groups about these topics.
60 participants took part in a two-day conference to discuss the role of carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) in the European steel industry. The event was organized by CATO, the Dutch national research programme for CCUS, and the Energy research Centre of the Netherlands, ECN.
A two days event hosted by the Energy research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN) will join principal agents from the steel industry and the energy sector to explore new paths to make European producers environmental friendly and economically competitive.
