The CuBE project

ERC Synergy Grant

The industry uses large resources to transform simple molecules with hydrogen and carbon into important raw materials for useful products, such as plastics and textiles. If Professor Vincent Eijsink and the CUBE research team manage to find catalysts that make the process easier, it could save the environment and resource use globally a great deal.
