Demonstrating DME workshop a success!

Demonstrating DME workshop a success!

On May 12th, 2022, the E2C project welcomed a group of stakeholders from industry and research institutions for a day of discussions about the production of renewable DME from CO2 and H2. The first half of the workshop included presentations from each of the partners involved in the DME research line:

  • Catalyst design for direct synthesis of dimethyl ether by Andrei Khodakov, UCCS – University of Lille
  • Efficient CO2 utilization by Sorption-Enhanced DME Synthesis (SEDMES) by Soraya Sluijter, TNO
  • Advanced Supervision, diagnosis and control: application to H2 and DME generation by Belkacem Ould Bouamama and Jean-Yves Dieulot, University of Lille
  • Green hydrogen from zero-gap water electrolyzers by Xiaohong Li, University of Exeter

The second half of the workshop was a tour of the TNO facilities in Petten, Netherlands, and took the participants through the Faraday Lab and around the new SEDMES demonstration pilot. 

The project partners and participants alike welcomed the opportunity to meet in-person with ample time alloted for networking and catching up with each other.

The recording of the presentations can be viewed on the project YouTube channel here.
