“We have now started the experimental part,” says Gerard van Rooij, professor of Plasma Chemistry at Maastricht University (UM). This unique lab is the place where Brightsite partners UM, TNO and Sitech Services, together with students and companies at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, will optimize existing plasma technology and develop new plasma processes.”
Since the opening in November, we have been busy preparing to actually get to work in the lab. You simply must go through the necessary procedures. The first project recently started, in which we convert methane using plasma technology. The exciting experimental part will now really begin,” emphasizes Van Rooij. The next step is expected to be taken at the end of this year. The plasma lab must then be ready to investigate the Hül process under industrial conditions.
