The BMBF project consists of 17 partners from industry and science with the goal to reduce the emission of carbon dioxide.
In detail, the use of gases from metallurgical plants are used for the production of chemicals, so that the emission of carbon dioxide is sustainably reduced. The requested hydrogen for this process is produced with the help of renewable enegry sources. The aim of CO2 reduction in the Ruhr area as well as at other metallurgical plants should be used in an economical way.
The project started at June 1st, 2016 and lasts until May 30th, 2020.
