Shared Innovation Program VoltaChem Launched


Thursday 1 October 2015, at the Dutch Topsector Chemicals Day, applied knowledge institutes TNO and ECN launch VoltaChem: a business-driven Shared Innovation Program that connects the chemical industry to the electricity sector and equipment suppliers. As from today companies can join VoltaChem's Community, and via the Community website it is easy for new partners to join the ongoing R&D program.


Changing from Thermal to Electrochemical Conversion

The first demonstration case concerns the conversion of HMF from biomass to FDCA, an important raw material for the chemicals industry.
