Perspectives and key results from the Interreg 2 Seas electrons to high value chemical products (E2C) project

We are proud to present this paper which highlights the key enablers for accelerating the roll-out of Power-to-X applications and provides examples of the technical advancements made within the E2C project, combined with an economic analysis comparing production costs of Power-to-X and CCU processes with conventional production routes. A set of policy recommendations are provided.  

The objective of the E2C project, part of the Interreg 2 Seas Programme, is to stimulate investment in and implementation of Power-to-X technologies by developing innovative direct and indirect conversion processes for the chemical industry towards higher TRL’s, while making use of renewable electricity and lowering the carbon footprint. With these technologies, valuable fuels and platform chemicals can be produced from renewable raw materials while decreasing costs and increasing flexibility. The focus of the E2C project is on Power-to-Chemicals and Powerto-Fuels (both liquids and gases). The project has developed two pilot demonstrators and two bench scale pilot installations with supporting feasibility evaluations, thereby lowering the risks of investment for companies, especially SMEs, and positioning the 2 Seas region as an innovation leader in Power-to-X sustainable technologies.

The Interreg 2 Sea’s Programme Interreg 2 Seas 2014-2020 is a European Territorial Cooperation Programme covering England, France, the Netherlands and Belgium (Flanders). The Programme is part-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (EDRF) and has a total of €241 million to co-finance projects in the 2014 - 2020 period. One of the specific objectives of the Programme is to increase the delivery of technological innovation applications in the region, for which the E2C project has received €4.6 million from the ERDF to boost innovation in the area of Power-to-X.
