Projects

Teams of SusChemA consortium participate in many research projects. Here a few most important flagship projects are summarized. For a detailed description, click on the project name in the menu on the left.

EnOp: CO2 for Energy Storage

The project of the Interreg V EU programme EnOp (in Dutch: CO2 voor Energieopslag - CO2 for Energy Storage) develops technologies for conversion of CO2 into fuels. In particular, the project focuses on the application of sun light energy and sustainable electricity to use CO2 as a platform for energy storage. 

This project is established by a contribution of the European Interreg V Flanders-The Netherlands program that stimulates innovation, sustainable energy, a healthy environment and the labor market by means of cross-border projects.

BIO-HArT: Upscaling of Renewable Aromatics Technology

In Dutch, the acronym BIO-HArT stands for 'Biorizon Innovation and Upscaling of Renewable Aromatics Technology'. Biorizon is a Shared Research Center with an initial focus on technology development for the production of functionalized biobased aromatics for performance materials, chemicals & coatings. Over the past years Biorizon has developed three commercially promising technologies for the conversion of wood, sugars and lignin into aromatics. By demonstrating the technology within this project on a larger scale, the confidence in the applicability of the technology on an industrial scale enhances and the risk to invest diminishes. Simultaneously bio-aromatics will be produced in sufficient quantities to be able to start application development routes.

This project is established by a contribution of the European Interreg V Flanders-The Netherlands program that stimulates innovation, sustainable energy, a healthy environment and the labor market by means of cross-border projects.
