Phoenix Initiative

The PHOENIX Initiative is a collaborative effort supported by the EU Member States, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and the European Chemical Industry Council (Cefic). PHOENIX will function as an umbrella initiative linking national and European RD&I activities with respect to CO2 valorisation to ensure an optimal use of public funding and private investment.


PHOENIX will interact with all relevant stakeholders from industry through research institutions to national governments and the European Commission.
