Green Chemistry and Processes for the Environment Platform
The Green Chemistry and Processes for the Environment Platform develops materials and processes for environmental applications,
recycling, renewable energy components, hydrogen technologies, and carbon capture and recycling. The platform's philosophy is that the circular economy is an innovation driver. This means developing
processes that severely limit the use of critical materials, that have the recovery and recycling of materials built-in, and that include plans for reuse of materials in the original or related processes.
The platform is home to
experts in chemistry, chemical synthesis, chemical and physicochemical processes, and material forming processes. It is also staffed by people knowledgeable about
lifecycle analysis to ensure that the environmental impacts of the processes developed are limited.
Materials can be synthesized and eco-processed at the
pilot scale to facilitate scaling them up for industrial implementation.
Nitrogen oxides, produced mainly when diesel fuel is burned, are harmful pollutants. Liten, a CEA Tech institute, recently modified automotive cabin air filters to effectively filter out nitrogen oxides at ambient temperature, improving air quality for drivers and passengers.
The digital publication Open Access Government published an article about the EU project SUPREME. Thierry Baffie, research engineer at the CEA-Liten and coordinator of the EU project SUPREME, highlights achievements in sustainable powder metallurgy
Automotive equipment manufacturers recently studied the nanoparticle emissions of different types of brake pads leveraging the know-how at Liten, a CEA Tech institute.
