WEBINAR SERIES: BACterial conversion of CO2 and renewable h2 into bioFUEL

BACterial conversion of CO2 and renewable H2 inTO bioFUEL

The BACTOFUEL project aims to demonstrate at TRL5 (technology readiness level) the possibility to produce biofuels (butanol & ethanol) to be used in the transport sector from CO2, genetically modified bacteria, H2O, Atomic quantum clusters and sunlight, by coupling several disciplines: nanotechnology (in the use of atomic quantum clusters), biotechnology (in the use of biochemical processes to transform CO2 and h2 into biofuels from a genetically modified microorganism using CRISPR-Cas), chemical engineering (coupling technologies and demonstrating it), and economy (in the use of a tech-to-market plan to work in advance and boost future steps towards commercialisation). 

The consortium of BACTOFUEL project invites you to participate in a free series of 6 webinars entitled:         

An introduction to the modelling of atomic quantum clusters: Presented by QingQing Wu, Research Associate at Lancaster University, Monday 14th at 11-11:30 am CET.
 Subnanometric clusters: exciting materials at the transition from nanoparticles to atoms: Presented by Prof Arturo López Quintela, Full Professor of Physical Chemistry at USC-Spain, Monday 14th at 12:30-13 pm CET.
Testing of photocatalytic systems to produce h2: Presented by Anh Dung Nguyen, Research Assistant at Technische Universität Berlin, Tuesday 15th from 11-11:30 am CET.
Metabolic engineering of acetogens for fuel production: Presented by Eric Vossen, PhD candidate at Wageningen University, Wednesday 16th from 14-14:30 pm CET.
Electro-biocatalytic approaches for CO2 Capture & Utilization: Presented by Dr Deepak Pant,Senior Scientist at VITO, Thursday 17th from 11-11:30 am CET.
MI-DICE -BACTOFUEL projects: how to boost technology to the market: Feasibility study and Tech-to-market plan: Presented by Kamil Szydłowski, Public & Regulatory Affairs Manager (Central and Eastern Europe) at EIT Innoenergy and Ignacio Herráez, Chemical engineer at NANOGAP, Friday 18th from 11:30-12 am CET

Don’t miss the chance to participate in any of the small webinars (half an hour each) you are interested in. We will be delighted to explain to you more in detail about what we are developing within the BACTOFUEL project. For more information and a description of the project, please see the e-brochure.

Please consult the instructions below for information on how to connect for the live webinar. You will need a computer with stable internet access. If you do not have access to the internet, please contact us so we can provide you with the presentation file to follow along.
