Transition to e-fuels will impact position of industrial harbors

26-01-2022

In the transition to e-fuels, major energy ports in North-Western Europe like HIC Rotterdam are expected to retain their hub function for energy and feedstocks. However, in the future their focus will be less on local fuel production, and more on logistics and international transport to bring hydrogen, e-fuels and associated chemical commodities to customers in their hinterland. While hydrogen is

The global sustainability transition has sparked renewed interest in high temperature electrolysis by means of solid oxide cells. A major advantage of these ceramics-like devices is their potential for integration in an industrial process environment at high temperatures. This opens avenues towards efficient production of a range of green chemicals and fuels. Frans van Berkel and Claire Ferchaud a

On November 18th 2021, the Brightsite Plasmalab opened officially on the Brightlands Chemelot Campus in Sittard-Geleen (NL). Researchers from Maastricht University and its Brightsite partners TNO and Sitech Services will work collaboratively in this lab to optimize existing plasma technology and develop new plasma processes. This will make it possible to electrify chemical processes using (green)
