Welcome to Alessia Cesarini
Her project involves the discovery of a catalyst for the conversion of ethylene into jet fuel. This is part of the SYNFUEL project with the general aim to produce renewable jet fuel. Alessia works on the route that is investigated by EMPA, which is based on electrochemical conversion of carbon dioxide into ethylene. This ethylene is to be oligomerized by Alessia; difficulty to overcome is the presence of relatively large amounts of carbon monoxide and hydrogen.
