Hermenegildo Garcia’s group hosted in Valencia the 1st in-person meeting of the ECO2Fuel project that took place on September 22-23. ECO2Fuel is an EU project under Horizon2020 (Green Deal). It aims to design, manufacture, operate, and validate the worldwide first...
International application PCT/ES2020/070826
International application PCT/ES2020/070826, with title “MEZCLA DE COMPONENTES ORGÁNICOS NO POLIMÉRICOS CON CAPACIDAD RETARDANTE DE LLAMA, MÉTODO DE PREPARACIÓN Y USO”
We are part of the “Photored” Project: “Photocatalytic CO2 reductions by green hydrogen”
“Photored” has been funded by AEI through "Plan de recuperación para Europa "NextGenerationEU". The project aims to develop a laboratory-scale pilot plant to prove the technical and economic viability of photocatalytic CO2 valorization to added-value...

Ana Primo has offered an interview for the section “They talk about science” published on the UPV website
Congratulations to the new doctors!
Alejandra Rendón Patiño, Lu Peng and Yong Peng successfully defended their PhD last July. They have obtained the maximum mark. Congratulations to the new doctors!
2 publications of the group are among the most cited in the “ACS catalysis” journal
Granting of an X-ray diffractometer coupled to the electron microscope (5 micron resolution)
European commission has granted the ECO2 Fuel. The project is coordinated by DLR. Among the partners, italian CNR at Mesina, the Technical University of Denmark and the UPV will colaborate with the Chrysler-Fiat research center, Monolithos, Bekaert and Ariema for...
Based on the promising photocatalysts developed in the group, 2 m2 demo plant for photocatalytic hydrogen production with natural sunlight has been installed at the roof of the ITQ. The system will allow to obtain data on photocatalyst stability under real...

Chinese Scholarship Council
CSC has granted two new Chinese students to join the group. Jianju Hu will perform his PhD Thesis at Valencia on solar photocatalysis. Xiangze Du will stay one year coming from the group of Prof. Changwei Hu and will be working on solid catalysts for biomass conversion.
FLOWPHOTOCHEM Project Started
The EU project led by Galway University has started in June 2020. The project aims at developing a two-step process for CO2 reduction to fuels under continuous flow. Since photocatalytic reactions are typically slow, the targets are to find selective photocatalysts…
METHASOL Project Granted
European Commission has granted the Methasol project aimed at the photocatalytic conversion of CO2 into methanol. The project is coordinated by our group and involves about 12 partners all over Europe, including the Max Plank Institute for Colloids and Interfaces…
Fire Retardant Patent Presented
A PCT patent has been presented on phosphate-free fire retardants based on the research carried out in the group in collaboration with Primalchit.
