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 reduce the environmental impact of chemical production by lowering CO2 emissions thanks to the advanced use of bio-based products and renewable energy. It will also be key to the future of sustainable society using local resources.
Likewise, PERFORM and the future development of its technologies will have a deep impact on the European chemical industry and economy thanks to the based production facilities that will create high end jobs and associated positive downstream effects in the communities they are based at.
Roman Latsuzbaia, Electrochemical Process Scientist at TNO, attended the 12th European Congress of Chemical Engineering to update the industry on the latest news of the PERFORM project. The audience, gathered together in Florence (Italy) September 15-19, received information on the electrochemical production of biobased maleic acid from Roman. PERFORM is expected to reduce the environmental...
In the occasion of the 70th annual meeting of the International Society of Electrochemistry, Roman Latsuzbaia, Electrochemical Process Scientist at TNO, presented the PERFORM project to the audience.
From May 12 to 15, Joost Helsen and Deepak Pant, Project Managers from VITO, attended the International Society of Electrochemistry (ISE) Meeting, celebrated at Toledo (Spain) where they presented the PERFORM project to stakeholders at the company booth.
