Gaznat is committed to research and development
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.
Six research projects have been selected. Of the projects chosen, three relate to the field of carbon chemistry, two investigate the capture and sequestration of CO2, and the other examines the potential for micro-cogeneration.
Two new calls for projects will be launched in the next few years.
The six projects currently in progress are:
- CO2 capture using high-performance graphene membranes
- Risk study of seismicity induced by geological sequestration of CO2
- Potential for and obstacles to the use of micro-cogeneration based on natural gas
- Development of a new class of catalysts based on non-precious metal oxides
- Development of cells that convert CO2 into fuel using solar energy
- Electrochemical conversion of CO2 into ethylene
