Resumo: he mission of Omnidea, a Portuguese SME is to perform leading edge R&D in innovative energy concepts. In collaboration with Research Institutes Omnidea is developing a technology based upon a regenerative energy storage cycle. In this cycle the recharge system converts CO2 into hydrocarbons using a renewable source of power. The discharge system produces electrical energy when hydrocarbons and oxygen from the recharge system are directly supplied to a device such as a Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC). This work focuses on the challenges involved in the task of bringing this technology closer to the market. A key feature of this technology is the use of copper which is known to have unique properties for converting CO2 electrochemically into hydrocarbons. The modification of copper electrodes with copper deposits to improve the catalytic activity and selectivity of the cathodes in the production of hydrocarbons in aqueous solvents is also described.
