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
