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

A new edition of the project’s newsletter is already uploaded to our website. We’ve just compiled interviews, events, related projects information, and more here.

Last June 24 and 25, the PERFORM partners showcased different achievements in their designated tasks and discussed in separated workshops the future actions to be taken.

From June 14 to 17, PERFORM consortium partners TNO, University of Messina, and VITO attended the 12th European Symposium on Electrochemical Engineering (ESEE 2021), held online. During the venue, Deepak Pant, Senior Scientist at VITO, Roman Latsuzbaia, Scientist at TNO & Voltachem, Carlos Sánchez Martínez, Chemical Research Scientist at TNO and Rosalba Passalacqua presented different...
