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

From June 24 to 26, the PERFORM consortium celebrated its month 18 meeting and underwent its first review by the European Commission and SPIRE 2030 organisations. During the first day, partners were invited to showcase their advances to date. Avantium, as the leader for work package 1 related to feedstock platform analysis, described the seven...

In Work Package (WP) 6, led by AVA BIOCHEM, the economics of the PERFORM project will be assessed, as well as the market where the technology is developed for. The results of these will be input for the exploitation plan of WP 7. All these tasks are very closely related to WP 3 and WP...
