Electrification of the Chemical Industry

Power-2-Heat

VoltaChem works on RD&I related to the use of electricity to generate or upgrade heat and steam for efficient use in chemical processes. The main challenges that are addressed are optimization between efficiency and costs, flexibility (e.g. load following, start-up/shutdown), integration, and increasing the operating temperature compared to existing systems.

Power-2-Heat focuses on:

  1. Use of renewable electricity as source to upgrade heat and steam, e.g. electricity from wind, solar and hydro.
  2. High temperature compression heat pumps
  3. Combination with heat and cold storage
  4. Alternative concepts for heat generation & upgrading, e.g. electrical heating, steam compression & multifunctional heat pumps.

Activities

  1. Large scale PCM heat storage.
  2. Multifunctional thermo-acoustic conversion.
