Boosting electrochemical conversion using a pulsating flow electrolyzer

In a recent publication in the journal Industrial & Engineering Chemical Research, VoltaChem researchers demonstrate how a pulsating flow can boost electrochemical conversion without the need for a complex reactor design. As a test reaction, the researchers investigated the conversion of 1,2-propanediol (PDO) to lactic acid (LA) and further to pyruvic acid (PA). The pulsation flow electrolyzer not only helps to overcome mass transport limitation, it can also enhance the selectivity of the conversion.

VoltaChem in action: Growing significance of industrial electrification

Pushing technology development from research & innovation towards piloting and demonstration in an international context, that's what it's all about at VoltaChem. 2019 saw considerable growth in projects as well as in partners, and important steps have been made in important fields such as the conversion of biobased feedstocks to high-value chemical building blocks, the integrated capture and conversion of CO2, and the development of paired electrosynthesis concepts. A state-of-the art research infrastructure has been established for the low-cost manufacturing of electrolyzers and components, and adding to the expertise in PEM and alkaline technology promising progress has been made in Solid Oxide Electrolysis.

Michael Carus: “We need a future-oriented renewable carbon strategy”

As the founder and managing director of the German nova-Institute, Michael Carus is considered one of the leading experts and market researchers in Europe on the bio- and CO2-based economy. Invited by Reinier Grimbergen of VoltaChem's Power-2-Chemicals program line, he presented his views on a renewable carbon strategy on chemicals and polymers at the VoltaChem Annual Event in December 2019. As it turns out, VoltaChem's efforts in this field are quite well-aligned with Carus' views.
