🇩🇪 The Ruhr region (Germany), member of the #HLFcommunity, is home to a unique mixture of more than 5 million people and 53 cities – a singular model that cannot be found anywhere else in Europe.
🏙 The “City of Cities” is a diverse place where metropolis meets nature and culture, where science and innovation sides historical industry and a colorful start-up scene.
Its dense settlement and economic structure favor a high networking climate among regional players of hydrogen, as well as many areas of applications in industry. This, together with the excellent research level from the 22 university locations, enables the numerous innovative production processes of hydrogen technology in the Ruhr Metropolis.
Evonik and Siemens Energy want to contribute to a climate-neutral future: the aim of the Rheticus research project is to produce valuable specialty chemicals from carbon dioxide and green electricity. 💡
At the project center in Marl, Evonik and Siemens Energy are bringing together two processes involving a bioreactor and an electrolyzer to create artificial photosynthesis. 🌳
“The innovative technology of Rheticus has the potential to help the energy transition succeed,” says Thomas Haas, the project leader at Evonik. “In the future this platform could be installed wherever a supply of carbon dioxide is available, for example at power plants or biogas systems.”
Germany’s Federal Ministry of Education and Research is providing a total of €6.3 million of funding for the various phases of the project.
With 5 million inhabitants and 53 cities, the Ruhr area is Europe’s third largest metropolis. 🇩🇪 🇪🇺
