Development of the technology and the methodology of integrating renewable energy in chemical processing by substituting fossil process energy in chemical industry, which has a high carbon footprint due to processing relative to the mass of the final product. Pursued technology developments are expected to directly target renewable energy integration into process energy demands of the chemical industry beyond electricity (targeting e.g. electrochemical potential of artificial photosynthesis to chemical reduction processes and/or e.g. direct solar thermochemical conversion) and should improve GHG balance and sustainability of the targeted process.
