Electrification and biochemical synthesis routes can offer alternatives for conventional chemical production processes and lead to safer and more sustainable operation at less severe temperature and pression conditions, with minimal loss of waste heat. VITO contributes to this strategy via its electrochemical, gas fermentation and enzymatic technology platforms, for example for the production of drop-in chemicals, bioplastics and high value nanocrystals.
