KIT Atmospheric CO2-to-Carbon Black Pilot Underway (Int'l, R&D)
NOCEC,Karlsruhe Institute of Technology
Date: 2020-03-27
In Germany, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is reporting the NECOC Technologies for Negative Greenhouse Gas Emissions Research Project is now under way.

In the NECOC research project, an integrated pilot plant is being constructed to test a new process for reducing the greenhouse gas CO2 in the atmosphere and to produce carbon black -- a high-quality, solid carbon with industrial applications.

Project partners include INERATEC GmbH, a spinoff of KIT, and Climeworks AG, a spinoff of ETH Zurich. The research project, scheduled for a duration of three years, is funded with a total of €1.5 million by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi).
