i. What is ENGICOIN? Why Engicoin?

It is imperative that the world intensifies research efforts aimed at utilising CO2 as a raw material for the sustainable production of chemicals and fuels, replac¬≠ing those derived from fossil sources. 
This is the rationale of  ENGICOIN!
ENGICOIN processes can exploit low-grade heat sources while implementing circular economy. We will reuse waste and also CO2 to produce 3 bio-compounds highly environmental sustainable.

ii. Who collaborates?

The ENGICOIN group involves 12 partners, from 7 different European Union countries (Austria, Belgium, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and UK), with a prevailing industrial participation (7 beneficiaries out of 12; 3 SMEs and 4 large company).

Two research centers and three higher education studies do represent the academic partners to the project. All of them have wide experience in industrial-oriented R&D and have been collaborating with companies and within variegated projects for several years.

iii. How it is funded?

ENGICOIN has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement No. 760994.

ENGICOIN proposal was submitted under the call H202-NMDP-BIO-2017. Particularly, BIOTEC-05-2017 - Microbial platforms for CO2-reuse processes in the low-carbon economy.

iv. Which value-added products are likely to be produced? from which organic wastes?

ENGICOIN process will be "fed" with daily waste (mostly organic) and with CO2 both collected by a Municipal Solid waste Landfill.

The process output will be: Lactic acid which is precursor for polylactic acid, pha molecules and acetone, the externalities of the process will be decarbonized flue gases that are less toxic for the environment than CO2.
