The mission of IC2R is the implementation of the Circular Economy through carbon recycling. The utilization of CO2 as building block for chemicals and materials or as a source of carbon for fuels is a key part of our strategy. The use of non-eatable biomass (cellulosic and oily) completes our approach to an effcicient use of resources and carbon recycling. IC2R develops new catalysts based on abundant metals (non precious) which are recoverable and reusable in innovative processes that minimize the waste production, working in solventless conditions or in water.
