Thalesnano Zrt. And the University of Szeged (SZTE) are developing electrochemical reactors producing hydrogen and converting carbon dioxide in a project launched with EU support, writes MTI. The total budget of the four-year research and development program is HUF 1.226 billion, of which HUF 846.7 million is covered by EU support.
The aim of the project is to develop technologies that will help reduce the increased concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere for the future of the planet and humanity, said Ferenc Darvas, President of ThalesNano Zrt. Atmospheric carbon dioxide is most often reduced by capturing and storing it, which is a risky activity and offers only a temporary solution, said Csaba Janáky, assistant professor at SZTE, research director of the project.
