Hello we are D-crbn, a spin-off from the research group PLASMANT, within the University of Antwerp
At D-CRBN we focus converting CO2 with the help of plasma reactors and CCU solutions.
We are a spin-off of the research group PLASMANT who is specialized in computer simulations for plasmas, plasma-surface interactions and laser-surface interactions.
The group is also conducting experimental research on the plasma-based conversion of greenhouse gases into value-added chemicals.
We believe that with a rapid industrialisation of our method we could help to achieve the EU’s climate objectives, which is reducing CO2 emissions by 40% in 2030 and becoming a net zero society in 2050.
