E-fuels are crucial to sustainable heavy transport

E-fuels are crucial to sustainable heavy transport

23-09-2020 | P2Fuels

Synthetic fuels produced from electricity, or e-fuels, will play an important role in reducing CO2 emissions from long-distance truck transport, aviation and shipping. For long-distance freight transport and shipping, synthetic methanol, diesel and LNG (Liquified Natural Gas) are the most attractive options; for deep sea shipping, synthetic ammonia is also an important option.

An industrial perspective for the sustainable electrochemical production of tartaric acid: From CO2 to a C4 molecule

An industrial perspective for the sustainable electrochemical production of tartaric acid: From CO2 to a C4 molecule

21-09-2020 | P2Chemicals

In a recently published paper in the ACS journal Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering, Amanda Garcia, Carlos Sánchez-Martínez, Ivan Bakker and Earl Goetheer present a feasible green and sustainable electrochemical production route for tartaric acid. The VoltaChem researchers synthesized this industrially relevant chemical through electrochemical reduction of oxalic and glyoxylic acids.

Cross-border infrastructure plays a pivotal role in decarbonizing industries

20-07-2020 | Project results

The research institutes DVGW-EBI, Dechema (both Germany), EnergyVille/VITO (Belgium), and VoltaChem/TNO (the Netherlands) have joined their expertise and conducted a high-level study on what cross-border challenges and opportunities can be identified for the production of ammonia, a key industry in the Antwerp-Rotterdam-Rhine-Ruhr region.

INCOME project: reducing cost and catalyst use in PEM hydrogen production

INCOME project: reducing cost and catalyst use in PEM hydrogen production

14-07-2020 | New Project

As part of VoltaChem's program line Power-2-Hydrogen, the new INCOME project focuses on improving the economic aspects of hydrogen production through PEM electrolysis. It explores novel electrode architectures for reducing cost as well as catalyst use. The project is carried out in cooperation with companies Magneto Special Anodes and Hydron Energy.

In this series we put the spotlight on the VoltaChem experts. We interview a team member and get to know him or her more in-depth. We will explore their role, background, expertise, motivations, ambition, and more. In this edition: Arend de Groot, Technical Lead of the Power-2-Hydrogen program line at VoltaChem.

Large potential for production of green hydrogen in five Dutch industrial regions

Large potential for production of green hydrogen in five Dutch industrial regions

01-07-2020 | P2Hydrogen

Plenty of opportunities for large-scale green hydrogen production by means of industrial electrolysis of water exist in the Dutch industrial regions of Rotterdam, the North Sea Canal area, Geleen (Chemelot), Zeeland (North Sea Port) and the northern Netherlands.
