- Sustainable Process Technology
Accelerating the energy transition by deploying Dutch innovation and exploring novel value chains, the BOF2UREA project targets emission and energy reduction for the production of urea based products, e.g. AdBlue® Diesel Exhaust Fluid. The consortium, consisting of ArcelorMittal, ECN part of TNO, Kisuma, Processi Innovativi, Stamicarbon, OCI Nitrogen, and Radboud University, successfully kicked-off the project on the 21st of September 2018 in Amsterdam.
The project sets out to (1) optimise the process to produce urea from basic oxygen furnace gas at a cost level lower than that based on natural gas, (2) determine the CO2 footprint reduction potential of the optimised process, and (3) form a lasting value chain to enable implementation of the process in a timeframe of 5 years.
ECN part of TNO’s SEWGS technology platform will be an enabling technology in achieving the targets. The BOF2UREA project has received funding from TKI Energie of the Toeslag voor Topconsortia voor Kennis en Innovatie (TKI’s) by the ministry of Economic Affairs of the Netherlands.
