Gaznat supports R&D

As part of its commitment to funding research and development projects, Gaznat entered into an agreement with the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) in Lausanne to launch calls for projects at the laboratories and research institutes of the university.

Eleven research projects have already been selected through two calls for proposals between 2016 and 2018. These projects focus on diverse topics related to CO2 and energy efficiency, including: CO2 capture using graphene membranes, geological sequestration of CO2, micro-cogeneration based on natural gas, the development of cells that convert CO2 into fuel using solar energy, or the electrochemical conversion of CO2 into ethylene.

These projects are: 

The third call for proposals is currently under way for projects with a focus on:

New projects will be selected during summer 2021 and launched in November.
