Decarbonization and recarbonization

The theme of the 2019 VoltaChem annual event is “Re-carbonizing the Chemical Industry by Electrification”. At VoltaChem's 5th anniversary, it brings to attention the importance of carbon, a key element in many products. Since we can't do without carbon, recarbonization is a crucial concept for realizing a sustainable economy.

Integrated capture and conversion of CO2

The direct use of CO2 loaded amine-based capture solvents in an electrochemical reactor is a viable concept for providing the chemical industry with sustainable, circular carbon-based starting materials. Laboratory experiments in VoltaChem's program line Power-2-Chemicals have already established high efficiencies in the capture integrated conversion of CO2 into formic acid. Now, a shared research program is being prepared to accelerate the development of this integrated approach.

Next steps in Solid Oxide Electrolysis

VoltaChem researchers are developing the next generation of Solid Oxide Electrolysis (SOE) cells at TNO’s Faraday lab in Petten. SOE technology offers great opportunities for large scale hydrogen production, renewable energy storage and, in particular, for electrification of the chemical industry. A unique feature is the co-electrolysis of steam and carbon dioxide, resulting in the generation of syngas. Operating at high temperatures, the SOE technology has great potential for integration in existing chemical processes facilities.

The materials issue of hydrogen production

31-10-2019 | P2Hydrogen

The materials issue of hydrogen production

Producing adequate amounts of hydrogen is crucial to establishing a fully sustainable energy supply and producing sustainable chemical products. But the scale of the energy system can pose important problems. One important issue is the availability of raw materials for large-scale production of hydrogen through electrolysis. In a current Voltachem study, the scale of this problem is being quantified. In particular, iridium, platinum, and tantalum, cobalt and nickel are materials of concern.
