Electrochemical processes are given renewed attention by the chemical industry as the sustainable generation of electricity is increasing, and a (periodical) decline in electricity prices is to be expected. The use of sustainably generated electricity is not only essential to the balance in the electricity network, but also offers new opportunities for economically viable electrochemical processes. The consortium will improve the efficiency, selectiveness and sustainability of electrochemical processes, focussing on reactions in which gases such as hydrogen, oxygen and chlorine are formed.
