Plasma technology recognized as a game changer for green chemistryVoltaChem partner Brightsite is taking plasma technology – one of the most important ways of reducing CO2 emissions – to the next level. Brightsite has established a new consortium and a new plasma lab with the aim of optimizing existing plasma technology, developing new plasma processes and taking an important step towards the ultimate circular chemistry.

Brightsite has recently been awarded a MOOI (Missiegedreven Onderzoek, Ontwikkeling en Innovatie – Mission-driven Research, Development and Innovation) subsidy, which it will use to develop plasma technology together with a new consortium. In addition to the Brightsite partners (Sitech Services, TNO, Maastricht University, Brightlands Chemelot Campus), the consortium consists of OCI Nitrogen and DIFFER. SABIC will be providing guidance to the consortium. “We are delighted with this collaboration and the substantial subsidy of several million euros that we have received from the Dutch Enterprising Civil Service (Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland, RVO) for the coming years. This subsidy underscores the importance of electrification and recognizes our specific plasma route as a promising opportunity for the greening of chemistry,” Brightsite Managing Director Arnold Stokking states.

The subsidy allows Brightsite to accelerate and expand plasma research. Developing new plasma processes that are more efficient will pave the way for circular chemistry.

VoltaChem is involved in the R&D on plasma technology at Brightsite.
