GreenCOre -Green CO from renewables reflects the intensive collaboration between Forschungszentrum Jülich and RWTH Aachen University. The GreenCOre-team members Severin Foit (FZJ), Markus Nohl (FZJ), and Dana Kaubitzsch (AVT.ERT) developed their business plan together with Karl Friedrich Block (Block Develop GmbH). The name says it all; the goal is to produce sustainable CO from CO2 independently of coal and natural gas. To enable the conversion of CO2 to CO, the team is developing a unique high-temperature electrolysis plant that will be powered by renewable electricity. The CO produced in this way can be found in many areas of everyday life, such as buildings, smartphone covers, and even soccer shoes.
