NPS 2018 will be held 30 + 31 MAY at the University of Twente
Finally, after a few years without NPS, we have a new date for NPS!
Sludge digestion plant to increase sustainability
Biomass can produce energy for instance in the form of biogas. This is also done in water purification plants. The sludge is put into a digester which produces a certain amount of biogas.
The Society of the Dutch Chemical Industry has been around for a 100 years!
Chemical specialties from CO2
What plants are doing for many years for producing chemicals, might be also suitable for producing chemicals for the market.
Lignin to replace fossil fuels
Today’s value of lignin is only its fuel value - about $50 per ton. Conversion into a renewable alternative for ABS Resin can change that.
Big Data in the Process Industry
Mark your agenda: 1st in the series Webinars 'Big Data in the Process Industry' (for those who understand German).
Happy birthday dear DPI!
Plastics have come of age.
A biological solution to carbon capture and recycling?
E. coli bacteria shown to be excellent at CO2 conversion
Will aniline be the next ‘green’ bulk chemical?
Direct amination of benzene promises to reduce the carbon footprint of the production of aniline compared with present production methods. But it would still be based on oil.
Conversion of Municipal Waste into Butanol and Hydrogen
The application of high pressure and steam is a proven method for the mobilisation of valuable components from biomass. Wageningen Food & Biobased Research is contributing to the project "Production of butanol and hydrogen by fermentation techniques using steam treated municipal solid waste (MSWBH)" with its expertise on fermentation and the use of anaerobic bacteria for the production of biobased chemicals.
