New eCOUCH project develops route towards efficient electrochemical CO2 utilisation

VoltaChem/TNO, Avantium and the University of Amsterdam are joining forces in the development of a highly efficient electrochemical process for the conversion of carbon dioxide. In the eCOUCH project, they aim to demonstrate at the bench scale how paired electrolysis can produce both chlorine and carbon monoxide, starting from hydrochloride acid and carbon dioxide. The high electron efficiency of the process promises a much better business case than more conventional electrochemical CO2 conversion approaches

ReFuel: Establishing the potential of hydrogen production for waste incineration plants

In a new study, the feasibility of hydrogen production by waste incineration plants will be investigated. The study, part of VoltaChem's Power-2-Hydrogen program line, focuses on the 'ReEnergy' waste incineration plant in Roosendaal. By using about a third of its 20 MW electrical power generation for the production of hydrogen, the plant could substantially contribute to facilitating the energy transition, particularly in the Roosendaal region.

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.

5M investment in state-of-the-art electrochemical research facilities

The Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate (EZK) has recently granted 5 M€ to VoltaChem initiator TNO to invest in state-of-the-art research facilities in the field of electrochemistry and green hydrogen production technology. This new “Faraday Lab”, named after the 19th-century inventor renowned for his contributions to the electrochemistry, will be realized in Petten (The Netherlands). It will serve as one of the key infrastructural cornerstones of VoltaChem’s program line Power-2-Hydrogen.
