E-TANDEM

E-TANDEM will developing the first direct process for the selective production of carbon-neutral higher oxygenate e-fuels from CO2, water, and renewable sources.
Uniresearch Role

Uniresearch supports the coordinator CSIC in the day-to-day management of the project. Next to the management and coordination activities, UNR is also responsible for the Dissemination, and Communication of the E-TANDEM project, in coordination with GF.

Project

Carbon neutral, high-energy density e-fuels are crucial to de-fossilize long-haul, heavy-duty road, marine and aviation transport sectors. Current e-fuels face hurdles for a swift market penetration due to incompatibility with current ICE fleets and fuel distribution network, and/or non-compliance with fuel norms in force. E-TANDEM aims to demonstrate a new, direct, hybrid-catalysis route for the production of a higher oxygenated diesel-like e-fuel (HOEF) based on higher alcohols and ethers from CO2, water and renewable power only.
