European technology to catalyse electrification of chemical industry


A consortium led by TNO (The Netherlands) and formed by VITO (Belgium), Avantium (The Netherlands), INSTM (Italy), Gensoric (Germany), Hysytech (Italy), Sustainable Innovations (Spain), Perstorp (Sweden), University of Hohenheim (Germany), Radici Chimica (Italy), AVA Biochem (Switzerland) and Novamont (Italy) will work for 48 months in order to develop and build an electrochemical pilot reactor, a direct conversion to the targeted products.


PERFORM is expected to contribute to technology development to reduce the environmental impact of the chemical industry. The technology developed in PERFORM will reduce CO2 emissions from the production of chemicals due to the efficient utilization of renewable biobased feedstocks and renewable energy. It will also be essential for a future sustainable society that uses local resources

“Numerous technology screening tests have been performed on different synthetic mixtures mimicking the actual process fluids, our next steps entail continued process characterization in the lab and material selection to allow for pilot construction and demonstration of both PERFORM reaction lines.  “

On October 28, RadiciGroup, responsible for Product Applications, participated in an online seminar to present the PERFORM project. The Italian Industry embraces Green Chemistry workshop was organised by Gruppo Interdivisionale di Green Chemistry della SCI, CNR-SCITEC and Consorzio Italbiotec and the presentations addressed the new European Green Deals related to chemistry. On behalf of the...
