Internship | Electrochemical production of platform molecules from sustainable raw materials
Education typeuniversity (wo)
TypeInternship and graduation project
Hours a weekFulltime – 40
The contribution of renewable energy sources in the total energy generation mix is steadily rising. One of the issues of renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind, is intermittency and therefore electricity price variation. Cheap electricity improves the business case of electrochemical production of chemicals as they usually require significant energy for chemical conversions. Additionally, electrochemical production and utilisation of renewable electricity and bio-based renewable chemicals improves significantly sustainability of the production. At TNO, we focus on the development of electrochemical conversion processes, which includes fundamental studies, followed by optimisation of the electrochemical system to industrially relevant and economically feasible conditions, techno-economic analysis and up-scaling.
