The event, run through the award-winning Whova platform, will provide an interactive and engaging experience for all the participants.

What to expect:

  • Two masterclasses on electrocatalysts, materials, and reactor design for hydrogen production and CO2 conversion
  • Insights into the latest developments on topics such as advanced electrolytes, materials for sorption-enhanced conversions, and upcoming electrolyzer concepts, among others
  • Discussions with top researchers from institutions such as TNO, VITO, the University of Exeter, and the Technical University of Delft
  • Virtual coffee breaks with other attendees and the project partners to allow for connections and networking, even online

Who should attend:

This event will be most suitable for those interested in the details of technical developments and challenges. Scientific staff, researchers, and students are especially encouraged to join.

Masterclasses:

  1. The Guiding Principles Behind Electrocatalysis, given by Tom Breugelmans, University of Antwerp
  2. Engineering Porous Materials for Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Storage, given by Antoni Forner Cuenca, Technical University of Eindhoven

Next to the masterclasses, the project partners will give short pitches of the innovative work being carried out in the project. These will be followed by breakout sessions for in-depth discussions with the partners and other participants.

Electrons to Chemicals: from Lab to Industry

Climbing the TRL Ladder Through Flexible Pilots

When: 21 April 2021, 13:30 - 17:00 CET

More information and registration here.

 

Join us on 21 April 2021 at 13:30 CET for an in-depth look at what it takes to bring sustainable process technologies through the various stages of piloting and demonstration, from both research and industrial perspectives.

The Interreg 2 Seas E2C project is excited to host our second event in our online Stakeholder Event Series with leading researchers, technology suppliers, and the chemicals industry. This will be an afternoon of insightful dialog around the challenges and approaches in scaling up and demonstrating CO2 conversion technologies, including keynote presentations and updates on the pilot demonstrators currently being constructed within the E2C project. The event, run through the award-winning Whova platform, will provide an interactive and engaging experience for all the participants.

What to expect:

  • Two keynote presentations giving the industrial perspective on what is needed to successfully bring technologies out of the lab and into industry
  • Insights into the latest developments on scaling up thermocatalytic sorption-enhanced and electrochemical CO2 conversions
  • A virtual tour of the new electrolyzer testing station recently installed at TNO through the E2C project, which is able to quickly and cost-effectively test novel electrolyzer designs and components
  • A virtual coffee break and networking with other attendees and the project partners to allow for making new connections, even online

Who should attend:

This event will be most suitable for those interested in the design, construction, and use of intermediate scale pilot and demonstration systems for the process industry. Engineering staff, researchers, and process technicians are especially encouraged to join.

Program overview: 

The first half of the event will include keynote presentations from industrial representatives, who will give a perspective on the challenges and needs of the process industry in bringing new technologies higher in TRL towards commercial implementation.

The second half of the event will feature presentations and Q&A with the E2C project partners, who are currently constructing flexible pilot demonstrators for CO2 conversion technologies that will soon be made available for use beyond the E2C project. Topics will include the challenges encountered, the lessons learned, and how technology developers and equipment suppliers can soon benefit from the project outputs.

Bringing Power-to-X to Life: Connecting technologies and sectors

Reducing uncertainty in realizing technologies for converting electricity to products

When: 12 May 2021, 13:30 - 17:00 CET

More information and registration here.

 

Join us on 12 May 2021 at 13:30 CET for an in-depth look at the challenges and dilemmas that are faced when implementing Power-to-X in real life. Hear from both industrial and research perspectives, along with discussions of how open innovation centers can contribute to accelerating innovation.

The Interreg 2 Seas E2C project is excited to host the third and final event in our online Stakeholder Event Series with representatives from the energy and chemicals sectors and the Fieldlab Industrial Electrification, next to leading researchers. This will be an afternoon of insightful dialog around the challenges and approaches in implementing Power-to-X technologies, including keynote presentations, a round table discussion with industry and project panelists, and the latest results on the LCA and economic analyses coming from the E2C project. The event, run through the award-winning Whova platform, will provide an interactive and engaging experience for all the participants.

What to expect:

  • Three keynote presentations giving industrial perspectives on how Power-to-X and various scenarios are expected to develop

  • A presentation on the latest developments with the Field Lab Industrial Electrification in Rotterdam
  • A round table discussion with the key speakers and project representatives to gain insights into the dilemmas being faced in industry when implementing Power-to-X technologies
  • Demonstrations of the dynamic system modeling and high-level scenario analysis being carried out in the E2C project
  • Discussions on the latest LCA, techno-economic, and business case analyses for sustainable conversions of CO2 to fuels and chemicals, including factors such as carbon accounting and power supply logistics
  • A virtual coffee break and networking with other attendees and the project partners to allow for making new connections, even online

Who should attend:

This event will be most suitable for those involved in developing strategies, policies, and plans for realizing Power-to-X technologies in industry. Business executives, policymakers, and high level researchers are especially encouraged to join.

Program overview:

The first half of the event will include keynote presentations from industrial representatives and the Field Lab Industrial Electrification, who will give their visions on how the industry is expected to develop and what is needed to make implementation possible. The session will end with a round table discussion to get into the details of the challenges being faced.

The second half of the event will feature overview presentations on the modeling and analysis activities happening within the E2C project. These will be followed by parallel breakout session where attendees will be able to engage in in-depth discussions with the project partners and other participants. Topics will include challenging the assumptions being used in the various models and analyses, elucidating the non-technical issues when implementing Power-to-X systems, and what can be learned from dynamic and system level modeling.
