Electrons-2-Chemicals - E2C



General Stakeholder Webinar - Catalysing Electrification

Online via Microsoft Teams

The E2C project gave a General Stakeholder Webinar on 7 July 2020. The content included:

  • A presentation on the expected outcomes of the project and why they are important for the regions involved by one of TNO's top scientists
  • Brief overviews of the key achievements realised so far, and the challenges currently being faced, including how the partners are looking at valorisation and implementation beyond the project
  • A Q&A session where participants were invited to give their feedback on the strategic directions of the project and plans for a Power-to-X Centre of Excellence in the Rotterdam region, one of the main results of the E2C project

Summer School on Electrocatalysis


University of Antwerp, Campus Drie Eiken, 7 - 11 September 2020

The summer school on electrocatalysis towards a greener society is a one-week programme, hosted by the University of Antwerp (UAntwerp) and the group of applied electrochemistry and catalysis (ELCAT) of the applied engineering faculty within the frame of a European Interreg 2 Seas program (E2C, Electrons to high value chemical products).

This summer school on electrocatalysis has as purpose to introduce you into the world of green electrochemistry starting from its basics and ultimately leading to the hottest applications that can currently be found in academia and industry. At the start, you will be submerged into the field of electrochemistry with some theoretical sessions, explaining the basic principles and moving on to the most applied methods in electrochemistry (LSV, R(R)DE, impedance, etc.), including an investigation of the kinetics and mass transfer aspects. This will be followed by some sessions on electrocatalysis and hands-on experience with electrochemistry inside the laboratories of the ELCAT group, where participants will be able to put some of the theories seen in the lectures in practice. Afterwards, a dive into the electrochemical reaction engineering and all its practical issues is foreseen and this will be coupled with a company visit. Finally, two of the most widely investigated applications of electrochemistry will be discussed in more detail by renowned scientists in the field. Focus here will lay on the recycling of CO2 through the electrochemical reduction into valuable chemicals and hydrogen generation to be used as fuel.

As this topic also fits in the European Interreg E2C program, it guarantees the international nature of the summer school.
