The BL2F project partners met for their second in-person General Assembly 29-30 March, this time at the Paul Scherrer Institute in Villigen, Switzerland. Partners discoverd the PSI campus, its numerous facilities, and the nearby village of Brugg.

Partners arrived the day before the meeting and gathered for dinner, the occasion for some partners to meet for the first time.

The first full day began on the PSI campus with coffee, croissants, and discussions on the project timeline and status. Work package presentations followed soon after, with time reserved for questions and additional discussion.

After lunch, the group took a tour of the PSI facilities. The first part of the tour was a visit of the Energy System Integration platform, on which the SunCHem project setup is hosted. This project aims to produce biofuels and capture carbon dioxide using an algae-based process.
