SUNRISE

Solar energy for a
circular economy

Our initial project has evolved during this year and we are now part of the SUNERGY initiative. Please follow us at www.sunergy-initiative.eu

Artificial photosynthesis for a clean energy future

Our objective is to provide a sustainable alternative to the production of fossil-based, energy-intensive fuels and basic chemicals. The required energy will be provided by sunlight, the raw materials will be abundantly available molecules, such as water, carbon dioxide and nitrogen.
