The VoltaChem Delft facilities expand CCU research portfolio

UTILISATION

The TNO labs in Delft has through VoltaChem developed its key research facilities for electrochemical conversion. The aim is to work on cutting-edge innovation in electrosynthesis to among other convert renewable feedstock, including CO2, into high-value products. If included in ECCSEL ERIC, these test stations will represent a significant expansion of carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) facilities in ECCSEL ERIC.

The Delft facilities feature various set-ups with electrode sizes ranging from 1 cm2 to 1000 cm2 and typical electrolyte volumes from 500 ml to 1.5 l. “The equipment is state-of-the-art ranging from small-scale devices, for instance for catalyst development, towards larger scale facilities where complete reactor performance can be investigated. We can investigate and advance processes in stages of development from TRL 2 – 6. All in all, we are able to develop and scale up novel processes to a level of industrial relevance.” Says Dr. Roman Latsuzbaia at VoltaChem. According to the researchers at the Delft laboratories it is the scope and size, combined with the level of automation, that make the facilities of particular relevance in the arena of electrochemistry research.

Depending on the research challenges posed to the facilities, a multi-disciplinary team of experienced researchers is assembled. Roman: “We always build on the knowledge and experience from earlier projects as well as on the latest insights from academic literature and industrial practice. I think we stand out because we have a lot of experience in projects together with companies. This industrial experience helps us to focus on the aspects that really are of importance in bringing technology to the market.”

ECCSEL ERIC Whitepaper

Other
The ECCSEL Whitepaper has been launched, where attention is drawn to CCUS as a solution to decarbonisation of energy-intensive industry. It is argued that by participating in the European Research Infrastructure for CCUS technologies – ECCSEL ERIC – countries in Europe can support, de-risk, and reduce investments costs in the costly demonstration and prototyping phase of implementing CCUS technologies.
