Start of Interreg project Lumen
(‘Sunlight as a fuel for sustainable chemical processes’)
As a society, we are currently facing two major challenges: the safeguarding of our future energy supply by the transfer from fossil fuels to sustainable energy sources, and, the reduction of emission of the greenhouse gas CO2.
Only this way we can reach the objectives of the Paris climate agreement; limiting global warming to a maximum of 1.5 ° C in the 21st century and net zero CO2 emissions in 2050.
The Interreg project LUMEN addresses both challenges
On May 1st 2019, the LUMEN project was started. The partners within LUMEN are developing technologies to convert CO2 into fuels and intermediates for the production of specialty chemicals. Follow the developments on www.lumen-project.nl
