Removing non-CO2 greenhouse gas emissions to support ambitious climate transitions
REPAIR will develop first-of-its kind technological proof of concept to remove non-CO2 gases like CH4 and N2O from diluted sources, including from the atmosphere. Two process routes are proposed: (i) capture, concentration and storage/conversion (ii) direct catalytic conversion.
CMCC will be involved in:
- Work package WP1 on “Experimental validation of CH4 (and possibly N2O) conversion and separation technology concepts”;
- Work package WP2 on “Process and system modelling design and optimization”
- Work package WP3 on “Technoeconomic analysis and scenario-based assessment”, as WP leader
- Work package WP4 on “Plausibility of removing non-CO2 GHGs and impact case studies”
- Work package WP5 on “Communication, dissemination and exploitation for potential upscaling to marketready solutions”
REPAIR will develop first-of-its kind technological proof of concept to remove non-CO2 gases like CH4 and N2O from diluted sources, including from the atmosphere.
Results will enable making decisions about upscaling of the technology in agricultural farms by 2035 in addition to increasing knowledge about plausibility of removing non- CO2 gases from diluted sources. It will also help the European Commission to make informed decisions about regulations for non-CO2 greenhouse gas emissions from 2030 as indicated in the Fit for 55 plan.
