Fast-modulated plasma for energy intensification
ERC Synergy project 810182 (SCOPE), from April 1st, 2019 to March 31th, 2025
With the global energy crisis intensifying, the need for renewable resources is greater than ever. The SCOPE project introduces a ground-breaking approach that uses renewable energy in three major industrial reactions. Non-thermal plasma could potentially convert small, low reactive molecules under near ambient temperatures and pressures. This is turn produces a marked drop in carbon footprints by as much as 90 per cent. The project aims to pursue a highly innovative approach providing for non-thermal plasma symbiosis with catalysis. SCOPE also introduces a fully new concept of nano- and micro-plasma array through a novel electrode design that generates the plasma at the catalyst surface, helping overcome long distance transport.
