Accelerating sustainable materials and P2X technologies through pioneering research themes and innovative X-trails at CAPeX.

The infrastructural and transdisciplinary backbone of CAPeX is based on three pioneering research themes (T’s) that form the methodological foundation and develop the modular data infrastructure and tools needed to accelerate the material discovery process. These infrastructures and methodologies support four “product”-oriented X-trails, each dedicated to breakthroughs in a specific “X” central to the future P2X ecosystem's success. Each X-trail aims to identify and create sustainable and viable paths to X, producing novel materials, designed interfaces, and X-products, which are among CAPeX's most important outputs. Additionally, we conduct proof-of-principle demonstrations of synthesizing sustainable fuels and chemicals in strategic P2X areas, significantly impacting the future Danish Energy System X by fully integrating renewable-based P2X technologies. This includes exploring electrical power conversion capabilities through proactive fast dynamic control of reaction selectivity, potentially increasing the durability of the discovered materials.

By designing the materials directly for their operating conditions and focusing on materials and processes that can be scaled to provide global solutions CAPeX aims to shorten the time from discovery to scalable and commercially viable materials and technological solutions.
