Electrification of the Chemical Industry

Down

VoltaChem is a business-driven Shared Innovation Program that connects the electricity sector to the chemical industry. New technologies are developed and implemented that focus on the conversion of renewable energy to heat, hydrogen and chemicals. Join us

VoltaChem Community & 3 Program Lines:

  1. VoltaChem Community
  2. Power-2-Heat
  3. Power-2-Hydrogen
  4. Power-2-Chemicals

Great opportunities

With more solar and wind energy being produced, sustainable electricity supply in North West Europe is constantly increasing. This source of energy might be exactly what the chemical industry needs to enhance its competitive position. 

Shared Innovation

Applied knowledge institutes TNO and ECN, together with industrial and academic partners, founded Shared Innovation Program VoltaChem to initiate and facilitate collaborative development of technology and business models. The aim: moving innovation faster towards commercial implementation. 

How to Participate

There are five ways to participate in VoltaChem:

  1. community participation
  2. shared R&D participation
  3. sponsored project
  4. commissioned project
  5. indirect research collaboration
