The CADICAT community include some of the best research groups within COresearch. Now, the Danish ministry of higher education challenge us to come up with the best research-based solution for converting COinto valuable resources, like fuels, chemicals or other products. The challenge is part of the Green Challenge. The Green challenge focus on three different topics: ways to convert COin to valuable resources, creating a future without plastic waste, and new approaches to feeding the growing population.

The goal is, to make Denmark climate-neutral in 2050 and the solution must be a step in that direction. The ministry of higher education suggest, using green energy to convert COto chemicals or products, converting COto liquid fuels for trucks, cargo ships, or aircrafts, or accumulate COnear incineration plants.

But maybe you have an even better solution?

Then first step is to create a team capable of lifting the challenge. The team must contain at least one researcher from a Danish university. Possible solutions are to be handed in from medio 2020 until August 2023

The solution will be judged based on the following:

  • Expected reduction of the negative impact on climate- and environment
  • Research quality and innovation
  • Scalability – will the solution be widespread within a short timeframe

The winner will win a prize of 9 million DDK to bring the project past the Open Science level: prototyping, scaling and implementing.
