Alta Carbon Technologies
CO2 as feedstock for green cyclic carbonates
SME company Alta Carbon Technologies develops technologies for the production of green cyclic carbonates from CO2. The company works closely with Dutch and European universities.
The process developed by Alta that allows (even possibly impure) CO2through an innovative low-energy catalyst, converting it into a circular electrolyte for lithium batteries. The company's next steps include: scaling up to demonstration and then full-scale plants, further development for different types of green cyclic carbonates, and development of processes for linear carbonates from CO2, also for the batteries.
