Descriptions


PROMOTEE has been created as a complex European project aiming at the development of novel porous carbon materials for energy and environmental applications using low value coal-derived liquids as the carbon precursors. The objectives includes:

• To maximize the use of coal-derived liquids as novel carbon material precursors with a view to their revalorization • To synthesize ordered mesoporous carbons via hard-templating from creosotes and rejects

• To produce new carbon gels via sol-gel routes from phenolic oils

• To understand the effect of coal tar-derived liquids on the characteristics of the carbon materials

• To evaluate the performance of these new carbon materials in energy and environmental applications

• To assess the feasibility of industrial applications of the porous carbons and compare them with commercial carbons
