In the plastics value chain, multiple process steps are being employed to create plastics from raw materials. The opportunity of industrial electrification lies specifically in the conversion of renewable feedstock (e.g. biomass, waste, CO2) to chemical building blocks enabling lower CO2 and raw material footprints.

Technology developments that are relevant for the fertilizers value chain are investigated through the different research program lines. On the short term, Power-2-Heat can already be applied in existing ammonia production with the aim of reducing CO2 footprint. Power-2-Hydrogen will play a role in the development of green ammonia on mid-term.

To accelerate the development of the technology, fruitful collaborations between the different stakeholders in the plastic value chain are crucial. Through the Power-2-Integrate research program, the impact of industrial electrification on this value chain is further explored and these collaborations are set up. Together with various partners, both industrial and research-oriented, the next steps towards the implementation of industrial electrification in the plastics value chain are taken.
