Circular Carbon Program: viable pathways for circular carbon

Circular Carbon

How do we transform carbon from single use to circular use without CO2 emissions, at low cost and on an industrial scale? In our Circular Carbon Program we’re developing viable pathways for circular carbon use in carbon intensive industries and explore bio carbon pathways as well.

Redesigning the industrial carbon chain

Carbon is the foundation of most production processes, making it essential to find innovative ways to reduce its carbon footprint. We understand that radical change isn’t always feasible, given decades of optimization in the petrochemical industry.

We’re committed to redesigning processes, starting with (combining) existing technologies, and bringing smart solutions that can create the necessary shift. 

Introducing circular principles

We believe in using materials and energy more efficiently, reusing them, and recycling as much as possible. We explore the development and the application of Advanced Recycling and Carbon Capture and Utilization (CCU) technologies. We investigate new value chains of bio carbon also being a part of the future materials and energy mix.

Circular Carbon Program

At the Institute for Sustainable Process Technology (ISPT), we take a holistic approach. Understanding the broader need for carbon is the first step in our innovation journey. The ISPT’s Circular Carbon Program has been making strides for many years, building a robust project portfolio in collaboration with our network. We focus on transforming carbon into a circular industrial carbon chain.

Collaboration in carbon projects

ISPT’s Circular Carbon Program encompasses multiple projects dedicated to CCU technologies for the steel industry, chemical industry, and (bio)waste sector. Our goal is to accelerate innovation and make technologies more affordable and scalable. We achieve this by collaborating with our diverse group of partners. Together, we are committed to help the industry meet its CO2 reduction and circularity targets by 2050 and lay the foundation for our future.

Carbon program lines

In the years to come, we’ll continue to work on gasification routes for syngas production, electrochemical conversion of CO2, valorisation routes based on syngas, including renewable methanol strategies and pathways and bio carbon pathways. Our approach is collaborative, involving every link in the carbon chain.
