Superkritische CO2 in de procesindustrie

[Event in Dutch]

6 JUNI IS GEANNULEERD – NIEUWE DATUM VOLGT

Superkritische CO2… wat is het en wat zijn de mogelijkheden in de procesindustrie.

Prof. dr. Francesco Picchioni en dr. ir. Rob van Haren nodigen geïnteresseerden uit laagdrempelig in contact te komen met betrokken onderzoekers en ervaringsdeskundigen uit het bedrijfsleven om tot een bredere inzet van superkritische CO2 te komen.

De Rijksuniversiteit Groningen en de Hanzehogeschool Groningen verrichten samen met verschillende bedrijven onderzoek naar de ontwikkeling en het toepassen van superkritische CO2 (scCO2) als groene procestechnologie voor de duurzame industriële productie van duurzame chemische producten.

Superkritische CO2 kan op verschillende manieren gebruikt worden in de industrie, bijvoorbeeld om stoffen van elkaar te scheiden of op te lossen. Deze groene procestechnologie spaart grondstoffen, water en energie. Het helpt bedrijven om op milieuvriendelijke manier nieuwe duurzame producten te ontwikkelen, zoals lijmen en recyclebare schuimen, als vervanging voor bijvoorbeeld het niet duurzame PUR. Groene producten kunnen beter gemaakt worden met groene productieprocessen die geen milieuschade opleveren en minder energie kosten. Het gebruik van scCO2 als alternatief voor organische oplosmiddelen kan meerdere bedrijven in de regio helpen om dit doel te bereiken. Ook voor de maak- en voedingsindustrie en machinebouw biedt scCO2 kansen.

Tijdens deze bijeenkomst zal vanuit de Rijksuniversiteit Groningen en de Hanzehogeschool Groningen inhoudelijk worden ingegaan op de werking van de scCO2 technologie en de uiteenlopende toepassingen binnen de procesindustrie zoals extrusie, extractie/impregnatie en chemische modificatie. Daarnaast zal een demonstratie van de technologie worden georganiseerd en tevens is er de mogelijkheid om inhoudelijk in gesprek te gaan met de betrokken onderzoekers en afgevaardigden uit het bedrijfsleven die reeds ervaring hebben opgedaan met de toepassing van superkritische CO2.

 

9.00                 Inloop

9.30                 Inhoudelijk programma met o.a.

  • Welkom ASQA en presentatie prof. dr. Francesco Picchioni
  • Matchmaking tussen bedrijfsleven en kennisinstellingen voor uitwisseling van kennis, ideeën en ervaring
  • Doorkijk nieuwe subsidiemogelijkheden & paneldiscussie
  • Presentatie ervaringsdeskundige scCO2

FutureCarbonNL

Join us and share your ideas and plans to actively shape the future #circularcarbon based industry in the Netherlands using #CCU technologies in the #FutureCarbonNL initiative!

FutureCarbonNL is an initiative by several industrial and knowledge partners, to submit a proposal for the 3rd round of the National Growth Fund in The Netherlands. The proposal focuses on research, development and demonstration of technologies that can convert CO2 and CO captured from waste gasification, process emissions or directly from the air into new materials, chemicals, fuels, and food by means of #thermocatalytic#biochemical#electrochemical and #photochemical processes. This enables closing the carbon cycle, and recarbonization of the industry.

The program will include activities from TRL 1 to 8, ranging from the invention of new catalysts and processes to convert CO₂ / CO into building blocks to industrial scale demonstrations of novel production chains for new products. At this stage, we are working on defining the exact scope of the sub-projects, and are seeking input from all industries, SMEs, start-ups, knowledge institutes, regional development organizations, and impact investors.

On the 2nd of November from 15:00-16:30, we will be organizing an information session providing further details about the program. We will also be seeking your input, particularly for mid- and high-TRL projects for the program. This would be the perfect chance for you to provide your ideas and plans to potentially shape the direction of #FutureCarbonNL!

Leergang Circulaire Economie [event in Dutch]

Vergroening van de industrie

 

Minder grondstoffen opmaken maar zoveel mogelijk hergebruiken voor nieuwe producten. Dat is – heel simpel gezegd – de basis van een circulaire economie. In 2023 moet 50 procent van onze economie circulair zijn, uiterlijk in 2050 100 procent! Maar hoe krijgen we dat voor elkaar?

Natuurlijk moeten we allemaal een steentje bijdragen. Door minder afval te produceren, en je spullen te repareren of ze een tweede leven te geven. Maar ook bedrijven moeten veranderen en de mensen die daar
werken moeten beschikken over voldoende kennis en vaardigheden om dat voor elkaar te krijgen. De circulaire economie biedt kansen voor innovatie en biedt interessante werkgelegenheid.

Bedrijven en kennisinstellingen uit Groningen, Friesland en Drenthe organiseren daarom samen de ‘Leergang Circulaire Economie’. Hierin laten we je kennismaken met verschillende aspecten van innovatie en arbeidsmarkt in de circulaire economie in Noord Nederland en mooie voorbeelden uit bijvoorbeeld de landbouw en de industrie.

Deze keer is Holland Malt aan de beurt om te laten zien hoe zij een bijdrage leveren aan de circulaire economie. Hoe zij verduurzamen, overgaan naar hernieuwbare energie en afstappen van fossiele energie.

Doelgroep

  • Studenten mbo, hbo en universiteit
  • Professionals / werknemers
  • Docenten
  • Overige geïnteresseerden
  • Geen kosten voor deelnemers

No Time to Waste

[Event in Dutch]

Sommige afvalstromen, zoals plastic, biobased of gemengd afval, zijn eigenlijk te waardevol om weg te gooien. Ze kunnen dienen als interessante grondstof voor tal van toepassingen en passen daarmee prima in een groene economie.

Alleen steekt de huidige nationale en Europese regelgeving nog een stok in het wiel.

De duurzaamheidsconsultants van Ecomatters hebben de hordes die een ondernemer moet nemen om de status ‘Einde Afval’ te krijgen in kaart gebracht. Zij deden dit in opdracht van het Platform Groene Chemie Nieuwe Economie waar Chemport Europe onderdeel van is.

Op basis van hun bevindingen formuleren we aanbevelingen om het beleid beter aan te laten sluiten op de nieuwe, groene economie.

Tijdens ‘No Time To Waste’ presenteren we de resultaten van het onderzoek en gaan we, onder leiding van dagvoorzitter Freek van Eijk (Holland Circular Hotspot) in gesprek met ondernemers (onder andere Synova en Neste), beleidsmakers en de deelnemers over de huidige belemmeringen én de kansen die er op economisch en ecologisch vlak liggen.

Aan vertegenwoordigers van verschillende beleidsniveaus (provinciaal, Rijk, EU) zal de publicatie met aanbevelingen worden overhandigd.

Eemsdeltavisie congres: grondstoffentransitie

[Event in Dutch]

Thema: Nieuwe bronnen voor C en H

Met ook: Verkiezing Plant Manager of the Year

We willen af van fossiele grondstoffen. Maar hoe komen we straks aan de koolstof en waterstof als chemische bouwstenen voor waardevolle materialen? In Noord-Nederland zijn de eerste stappen zichtbaar van de grondstoffentransitie. Groene waterstof krijgt al veel aandacht als energiedrager, maar is misschien nog wel belangrijker als bouwsteen voor materialen die wij allen dagelijks gebruiken. Er zijn ook interessante initiatieven op het gebied van koolstof uit afval, biomassa en zelfs CO2.

Tijdens Eemsdeltavisie 2023, zetten we ’s middags het spotlicht op verschillende initiatieven en zetten we ze in een breder perspectief. En… voor het eerst wordt de Plant Manager of the Year bekend gemaakt in Noord-Nederland. En wel tijdens het Chemport Europe Diner in de avond.

Details programma volgen binnenkort.

Superkritische CO2 in de procesindustrie

[Event in Dutch]

6 JUNI IS GEANNULEERD – NIEUWE DATUM VOLGT

Superkritische CO2… wat is het en wat zijn de mogelijkheden in de procesindustrie.

Prof. dr. Francesco Picchioni en dr. ir. Rob van Haren nodigen geïnteresseerden uit laagdrempelig in contact te komen met betrokken onderzoekers en ervaringsdeskundigen uit het bedrijfsleven om tot een bredere inzet van superkritische CO2 te komen.

De Rijksuniversiteit Groningen en de Hanzehogeschool Groningen verrichten samen met verschillende bedrijven onderzoek naar de ontwikkeling en het toepassen van superkritische CO2 (scCO2) als groene procestechnologie voor de duurzame industriële productie van duurzame chemische producten.

Superkritische CO2 kan op verschillende manieren gebruikt worden in de industrie, bijvoorbeeld om stoffen van elkaar te scheiden of op te lossen. Deze groene procestechnologie spaart grondstoffen, water en energie. Het helpt bedrijven om op milieuvriendelijke manier nieuwe duurzame producten te ontwikkelen, zoals lijmen en recyclebare schuimen, als vervanging voor bijvoorbeeld het niet duurzame PUR. Groene producten kunnen beter gemaakt worden met groene productieprocessen die geen milieuschade opleveren en minder energie kosten. Het gebruik van scCO2 als alternatief voor organische oplosmiddelen kan meerdere bedrijven in de regio helpen om dit doel te bereiken. Ook voor de maak- en voedingsindustrie en machinebouw biedt scCO2 kansen.

Tijdens deze bijeenkomst zal vanuit de Rijksuniversiteit Groningen en de Hanzehogeschool Groningen inhoudelijk worden ingegaan op de werking van de scCO2 technologie en de uiteenlopende toepassingen binnen de procesindustrie zoals extrusie, extractie/impregnatie en chemische modificatie. Daarnaast zal een demonstratie van de technologie worden georganiseerd en tevens is er de mogelijkheid om inhoudelijk in gesprek te gaan met de betrokken onderzoekers en afgevaardigden uit het bedrijfsleven die reeds ervaring hebben opgedaan met de toepassing van superkritische CO2.

 

9.00                 Inloop

9.30                 Inhoudelijk programma met o.a.

  • Welkom ASQA en presentatie prof. dr. Francesco Picchioni
  • Matchmaking tussen bedrijfsleven en kennisinstellingen voor uitwisseling van kennis, ideeën en ervaring
  • Doorkijk nieuwe subsidiemogelijkheden & paneldiscussie
  • Presentatie ervaringsdeskundige scCO2
