Reduction of emissions by electrification
The share of renewable electricity in the Netherlands is expected to be 75% in 2050, as set in the concept climate agreement. The program line Reduction of emissions by electrification focusses on the possibilities of using renewable electricity to power processes and installations and thereby significantly reducing the CO₂ emissions of Chemelot.
Electrical high temperature heating with renewable energy and decarbonization without the formation of CO₂.
In order to achieve the climate goals on the site we are researching long term options such as:
- Electrical high temperature heating with renewable energy
- Decarbonization without the formation of CO₂
We are also looking at the main challenges, which lie within the reliable supply of sufficient green electricity, technological development and demonstration of electrical high temperature heating, and incorporation of flexible processes and installations.
