Relevant projects and initiatives related to the CAPTUS project with whom we collaborate:


Sustainable On-site and Innovative Technologies for Advanced Transport BioFuels from MιcroalGae

The aviation and shipping industries are transitioning to fossil-free energy sources. In this context, the EU-funded FuelGae project uses microalgae to produce advanced liquid fuels (ALFs) from CO2 emissions originating from biorefineries and energy-intensive industries. The objective is to enhance microalgae performance by customising them to suit the specific needs of each industrial case study. ALF production will involve selective microalgae cultivation for polysaccharides or lipids, alternative treatments for biomass, catalytic upgrading systems, and the use of an online sensor. FuelGae incorporates integrated modelling techniques to create a global Digital Twin. It will also employ hydrothermal liquefaction and biogas processes to produce biochar, which will be tested in agriculture to evaluate its environmental impact and economic sustainability.


Storage INNOvations for Green ENErgy Systems

European pathways towards decarbonisation require the incorporation of both renewable energy and renewable energy storage solutions. This is essential for overall energy stability and efficiency. Unfortunately, current energy storage systems are inefficient. Also, the implementation of novel storage systems can be difficult and challenging since they may disrupt the energy grid. With this in mind, the EU-funded SINNOGENES project will develop an energy storage toolkit specialised in helping energy storage innovations to be efficiently and safely integrated into the energy grid. The project will both assist innovations and demonstrate the efficiency and benefits of energy storage technologies.
