Pilot for synthesis of formic acid from CO2 at Twence waste incineration site

On February 21, the Twence waste incineration company officially launched the development of a pilot plant for converting CO2 into formic acid. This pilot builds on the VoltaChem Power-2-formic acid project where a reactor was developed and tested in cooperation between Coval Energy, VoltaChem/TNO, and TU Delft. Now the technology will be scaled up towards the pilot plant at the Twence site in Hengelo.

VoltaChem Community: Plans for 2019

As the platform for open innovation in the electrification of chemical process technology, VoltaChem brings together stakeholders from the energy, chemical & equipment sector in an exclusive forum. With ever increasing pressure on CO2 reduction, VoltaChem makes it easy to stay on top of developments. As a member of the VoltaChem Business Community, you are first to receive the latest insights into technological developments and market opportunities. You have access to relevant events and reports and can benefit from bilateral consulting. A new initiative in 2019 is the establishment of Communities of Practice: business groups with a shared interest in specific technologies.

CO2 reduction through industrial innovation with P2X: Towards a field lab industrial electrification

In cooperation with industry associations Deltalinqs and FME, VoltaChem has recently conducted a market scan amongst approximately 50 public and private organizations in the Rotterdam-Moerdijk region, aiming to identify the most important barriers and drivers for industrial electrification. Interviewees indicate that they often develop process improvements individually, while barriers can be overcome by cooperation, learning from past experiences and value chain thinking. National and international experience shows that a field lab can be an important innovation instrument accelerating the adoption of technologies and transforming individual approaches to a cooperative approach that benefits all public and private partners. This is why the set-up of a potential field lab industrial electrification in this area will be further investigated.

On track to PERFORM in integrated electro-synthesis

On January 24-25, the 9 M€ EU funded innovation project PERFORM was successfully kicked-off in Delft. Short for PowER platform, PERFORM aims at developing highly efficient and integrated electrochemical systems that can substantially improve sustainable production of valuable building blocks from bio-based feedstocks. VoltaChem contributes to PERFORM through the Power-2-Chemicals program line. Coordinated by VoltaChem/TNO, the PERFORM consortium has started the development of an open-access piloting platform for demonstration of paired electro-synthesis and integrated product recovery, which will result in energy savings and emission reductions in biochemical processes.
