TNO is to collaborate with three partners to develop a new generation of electrolyzers. Together with the German company Schaeffler, Johnson Matthey from England and the Belgian company Bekaert, they will work together for a step-change in efficiency to be used within electrolysis. The consortium brings together each company’s leading individual capabilities to drive forward next generation tech

Oil and gas shortages are not only pushing up the prices of gas and petrol, but also plastics, medicines and cosmetics. To make our society less dependent on fossil fuels and combat climate change, the chemical industry needs to change radically. In recent years, TU Delft and TNO have laid the foundation for cleaner production processes in the chemical industry. The new e-Chem partnership is now t

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
