Production processes in the chemical industry can be greener: with less energy and less waste. This requires better understanding of the production processes. Theoretical and experimental research in Eindhoven, Twente and Delft join forces to contribute to the ‘greening’ of these processes. FOM is investing 780,000 euros in an Industrial Partnership Programme. Multinational Akzo Nobel, DSM, SABIC, Shell and Tata Steel jointly fund an amount, bringing the total investment to 1.6 million over a period of six years.
