NEW RESEARCH PROJECT HYPERSOL RECENTLY LAUNCHED BY AMO AND PARTNERS

Plasmonically enhanced photocatalysis for generating solar fuels

AMO, ZBT, IUTA, Temicon and NB Technologies started the project HyperSol. The project addresses the climate change resulting from CO2.

The projects aim is to transform CO2 into solar fuels using a photocatalytic process and to feed these into the cycle of regenerative energy carriers. In the project, a synergetic combination of hybrid plasmonics and photocatalytic semiconductors is investigated to improve the efficiency of generating solar fuels like methanol and methane for energy storage and as fuel for mobility. The partners will combine their strengths in semiconductor- and nanotechnology, as well as new materials with advanced approaches concerning reactor technology.

This project is funded by the EFRE European Regional Development Fund within the program “Leitmarkt NeueWerkstoffe”.
