PyroCHEM aims to chemically recycle 1 million tons of waste annually into feedstock for the chemical industry
Much plastic waste such as agriculture foil or potato chips bags cannot be recycled now because it is too dirty or consists of several layers. The PyroCHEM project aims to make the chemical industry more sustainable by optimizing and scaling up the chemical recycling of plastic waste and the pyrolysis of other (biomass) residual flows. The ambition: to process 1 million tons of waste plastic into feedstock for the chemical industry from 2030 onwards.
Jiffy Group joins Green Chemistry Campus Community
Jiffy recently joined the Green Chemistry Campus Community. Jiffy, internationally active in the horticultural sector, develops and produces innovative and sustainable substrates and cultivation systems. As a Netherlands-based organisation, this year Jiffy participated in the third edition of the BioVoice program that links questions from large companies to solutions from SMEs. At the Campus, Jiffy is looking for biobased materials as a raw material for potting soil and other substrate applications.
Proton Ventures received an innovation contract from BioVoice Innovation & Business Booster for the SABIC Hydrogen Challenge.
This innovation contract with a pilot assignment gives Proton the opportunity to conduct a feasibility study. It is being investigated whether it is technically and economically feasible to build a green ammonia plant with the aim of locally producing 8,500 tons of green ammonia per year at SABIC’s production location, Bergen op Zoom.
