Welcome to SOREC2 project.
Pioneering a novel solution to convert sunlight and CO2 into added-value chemicals.

What is SOREC2?

SOREC2 is an EU funded project seeking to develop a new technology to transform directly the sunlight and CO2 into  ethanol or ethylene.
The consortium will develop a new compact tandem PEC and a new hybrid catalyst system to enhance the selectivity towards C2 products.
1-step stand alone solar-to-X
Abundant, non-toxic feedstock and materials
Up-scalable processing and system integration
True green circular CO2 economy
