'Time points' are awarded according to the adequacy of the solution with the type of innovations sought by Time for the Planet®. They correspond to the analysis of several factors :

  • impact potential: impact average score > 4 => 0,5 point / if > 4,15 => 1 point.
  • global consistency: all average score of the 6 selection criteria > 2,5 => 1 point.
  • the favourite: % of assessments judge the innovation as a top one to act on a global scale against greenhouse gases > 20% => 1 point
  • the targeting: validation of Time for the Planet<span class="brand">®</span> scope of action higher than 90% => 0,5 point + innovation level of maturity is enough => 0,5 point
  • social acceptability: semantic analysis score of comments > 0 => 0,5 point/ if > 3500 => 1 point
61 assessments

Submitted to the Scientific Committee : After the evaluations made by our volunteer assessors, innovations with the strongest impact potential are submitted to the Scientific Committee. The managing directors are responsible for the choice.

Carboneo recycles industrial carbon dioxide into useful products.

Submission date June 02, 2022 Founders Dorian Joulié Development location Paris, France

Detailed project

NB: this form is filled entirely by the ones submitting the innovation.

What is the issue addressed?

Carboneo valorizes industrial CO2 and therefore makes CO2 capture and storage profitable.

How is the problem solved?

Carboneo develops a technology for the electrolysis of CO2. With the help of electricity, we transform CO2 into CO and O2 (useful products for industry). The self-consumption of CO and O2 makes the process profitable within a few years.

What is the customer target?

We are targeting the pharmaceutical, chemical and microelectronic industries. In a second phase, the fuel markets could be targeted.

How is this solution different?

Our molecular catalysts are based on iron. The competition uses silver, copper, gold or zinc. Our catalysts are therefore more environmentally friendly while producing high purity CO.
