Development of Multifunctional Catalysts for the Synthesis of Carbon based Molecules by Power-to-X

Abstract

The production of synthetic fuels from CO2 and H2 from electrolysis (Power-to-X), via the Fischer-Tropsch (FT) process, involves the intermediate formation of CO (RWGS) and then its hydrogenation. Coupling these two reactions - endothermic (RWGS) and exothermic (FT) - in a single reactor, to generate heavy molecules (>C4+), would allow a significant energy gain. This coupling however implies the development of more selective and more active catalysts for both reactions. The approach of the project consists in developing multifunctional catalysts integrating active sites for each of the two reactions in particular through the implementation of in situ characterization tools to determine the chemical intermediates and provide the understanding necessary for the development of new catalysts. These new catalysts will be characterized in laboratory reactors and then evaluated under “more real” conditions in larger continuous flow reactors.
