First consortium meeting of Genesis Project in Terrassa

On the 8th of June, the consortium of the Genesis project met for the first time after the kickoff meeting that took place 6 months earlier. The event took place at Leitat headquarters in Terrassa (Barcelona). Partners discussed various tasks that started since the launch of the project, how to improve the work organisation in order to reach the expected results. First communication materials were also presented that aim to help the consortium in their daily activities.

GENESIS develops and upscales some of the most promising material for CO2 capture and demonstrate their performance, durability and reliability in industrial environments. The materials are IPOSS (polyPOSSimide hybrid organic-inorganic) and MOF (Metal-organic framework) membrane systems that have demonstrated great performances for CO2 capture.

The objectives are:

  1. Develop Mixed Matrix membranes that capture at least 90% of CO2
  2. Demonstrate CO2 capture system in Cement and Steel industry
  3. Demonstrate membrane systems in pre-combustion and post-combustion applications
  4. Recover CO2 at a cost of 15€/MWh
