The energy transition has far-stretching implications for chemical companies. e-Refinery at TU Delft enables industry partners to start building the required technology capacity and human capital as soon as possible. Researchers in the e-Refinery initiative focus their research on the electrochemical conversion of sustainable electricity into fuels and chemical building blocks, from the molecular scale to large-scale system integration. Implementing e-Refinery will serve three important challenges that the society is facing: CO2 neutral Fuel, seasonal energy storage and a defossilized chemical industry.

Reduction of CO2 emission

Contritbuting to the ambitions formulated in the Dutch Klimaatakkoord.

Why e-Refinery?

Climate change is urging us to move towards a CO2-neutral sustainable energy system. Electrification is a key enabler towards reducing CO2 emission.

Our future

The first steps towards industrial scale refineries that deliver chemicals and fuels based on electrosynthesis using renewable electricity: ‘e-Refinery’ systems.

Why participate?

Together with academia, research institutes, government and industry we're able to build projects for a fossil-free future. Join e-Refinery in developing the initiative’s vision and realizing its ambitions!
