Improving indoor air quality in schools in the Netherlands

My research is focused on improving indoor air quality (IAQ) in schools in the Netherlands as part of the ECOS-IAQ project.

New project videos: Carbyon 2.0

The atmospheric CO2 levels are excessively elevated, so urgent action is needed to lower them. Eindhoven Engine Project Carbyon is developping machines that are capable of capturing carbon from the surrounding air and filtering it out. The retrieved carbon dioxide can be either reused or securely stored for an indefinite period. By adopting this approach, Carbyon can effectively address the issue of climate change.


Into a working machine

Marco Arts is the chief operating officer at Carbyon. Currently, Carbyon is collaborating with Eindhoven University of  Technology and DIFFER in the Eindhoven Engine project Carbyon 2.0 to verify their key technologies in their lab environments. Currently, they are developing a fully integrated working machine that takes in ambient air and delivers pure CO2.

Direct air capture by different solvents

Jasper Simons, CTO at Carbyon, showcases the first test version of their direct air capture equipment. And Shilpa Sonar is working as a postdoc researcher at Eindhoven University of Technology. Shilpa’s research is mainly focused on the direct air capture by the different solvents. Her research will be carried out in the Carbyon’s own home-produced reactor.
