[en] In this presentation, the activities related to CO2 at the University of Liège will be presented and a focus will be set on the CO2FUTURE platform recently created at ULiège. After shortly introducing the challenges related to CO2 emissions, a brief overview of main CO2 capture technologies will be made, evidencing the maturity level of the different capture methods. In particular, our research activities related to post-combustion capture and solvent stability will be described.

Then, different CO2 re-use technologies will be discussed, with the focus set on process design and reactor engineering. Indeed, depending on the reaction and catalyst used, the reactor design may be adapted to optimize reaction conditions and reach optimal production and selectivity. This approach will be illustrated by several CO2 reuse products resulting from the power-to-fuel process that converts CO2 into energy carriers such as methanol or DME. The interest for power-to-fuel technologies from an energy storage point of view will be evidenced as well. Results from a student’s integrated project dedicated to CO2 re-use in a Brazilian case study will be presented.

Finally, we will present the activities in the field of CO2 at the University of Liège, and introduce the CO2FUTURE platform that gathers 3 faculties and 4 labs in the field of CO2. Further fields of research related to CO2 re-use will be described, and potential collaboration pathways will be evidenced.
