'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 :
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.
Carboneo valorizes industrial CO2 and therefore makes CO2 capture and storage profitable.
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.
We are targeting the pharmaceutical, chemical and microelectronic industries. In a second phase, the fuel markets could be targeted.
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.
