Founded in 2013, IC2Rsrl brings the scientific knowledge and know-how developed over years at the international level by the Aresta’s Research Group.Research is focused on the development of new catalysts and innovative processes for the use of CO2 or residual biomass as raw material for the synthesis of fine-chemicals and materials or as a carbon source for the production of fuels. These technologies are aimed at reducing the environmental impact with respect to technologies currently on stream through the reduction of waste and the direct or indirect use of CO2 and residual biomass.Some target compounds are: organic carbonates (acyclic and cyclic), acrylates, carbamates, methanol, functionalized alkanes C2+, fuels.Despite its recent start, IC2Rsrl is the sole owner of patents on the synthesis of catalysts and its founders are co-inventors of patents transferred to large European companies.
