About CHEM|ampere

 

By 2050, the chemical industry should operate in a climate-neutral fashion, which means phasing-out fossil oil, gas, and coal. Therefore, alternative carbon sources and renewable energy have to be utilized in order to replace fossil reserves. A new Stuttgart Research Initiative, named CHEM|Ampere, will elaborate on the concept of such a future chemical factory, both from a fundamental and application-oriented standpoint. The University of Stuttgart, German Aerospace Center (DLR), the Center for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-W├╝rttemberg (ZSW), and the Fraunhofer Institute for Interfacial Engineering and Biotechnology (IGB) will be involved in the initiative.
 

CHEM|ampere aims to develop technologies for the sustainable CO2-neutral production of chemicals. The concept of this research initiative is based on the use of renewable electricity as a secondary energy form to activate the non-fossil and readily available raw materials CO2, H2O, O2, and N2. CHEM|ampere focuses on three electrical production technologies:

  • Plasma processes
  • Electrolysis processes 
  • Electrically heated reactors
