Interviews on the challenges and highlights of Carbon2Chem®

Four questions to ...

What has been achieved so far during the Carbon2Chem® joint project? What have the highlights been? Where were the biggest challenges? And what next steps are planned? In the “Four questions to...” section, we regularly interview project coordinators and partners. So, it’s worth dropping by here virtually from time to time.

...the Carbon2Chem® project coordinators


Project coordinator / 22.7.2020

Markus Oles

"We want to extend Carbon2Chem® solutions to other industries with high CO2 emissions such as the lime industry or incineration plants."


Project coordinator / 30.9.2020

Görge Deerberg

"An improvement in climate protection requires not only a reduction in CO2 emissions but also an improvement in the use of fossil raw materials. This can be realized with Carbon2Chem®."


Project coordinator / 2.10.2020

Robert Schlögl

"An energy system without fossil fuels needs a materials-cycle management for carbon using green hydrogen. This challenge now requires a determined joint effort by science and industry."
