An electrochemically produced oxidiser for modular, onsite generation of HYdrogen PERoxide

Descrizione del progetto

Un approccio più efficiente ed ecologico al perossido di idrogeno

Il perossido di idrogeno è un’importante materia prima nell’industria chimica, della carta e della cellulosa e tessile, impiegato principalmente come ossidante e sbiancante. Attualmente, il perossido di idrogeno viene prodotto quasi esclusivamente tramite il processo di autossidazione/antrachinone basato sul gas naturale e viene spedito come soluzione diluita agli utenti finali. Lo stato dell’arte ha quindi una grande impronta di CO2. Il progetto HYPER, finanziato dall’UE, cercherà di trasformare la produzione di perossido di idrogeno da questo processo chimico energivoro e dai grandi volumi a un processo elettrochimico più efficiente, scalabile e modulare. L’innovazione di HYPER risiede nell’impiego del persolfato come intermedio di ossidazione stabile, che consente sia l’accumulo di energia elettrica rinnovabile sia la produzione di perossido di idrogeno in loco e su richiesta.

Obiettivo

Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) has many industrial applications, e.g. as chemical reagent and bleaching agent for textiles and wood pulp. The established production route of H2O2 is the autooxidation/ anthraquinone process, which uses natural gas as both feedstock and energy source.The main objective of HYPER is the demonstration, in industrially relevant environments, of a scalable, modular electrochemical process for H2O2 production with improved efficiency compared to the state-of-art. It will bridge this production with downstream integration into diverse value chains, pulp and paper, textiles and coatings/chemicals, in which strong market opportunities exist for modular, on-site and on-demand H2O2 production. The central innovation in HYPER is the use of persulfate as a stable oxidization intermediate, allowing both storage of renewable electricity and on-demand H2O2 production. HYPER will thus help transform H2O2 production from a large-volume, energy intensive chemical process to a smaller-scale, modular, renewable, electrochemical process. Demonstration of electrochemical production technologies at TRL6 and integration into the three aforementioned value chains will allow HYPER to evaluate the potential of the electrochemical production for further TRL development.HYPER will advance a safe, circular, and cost competitive electrified technology for H2O2 production. The estimated production price of ca. 0.6 €/kg can be further decreased by the storage of renewable electricity. Implementation of HYPER technology will decrease life cycle CO2 emissions in H2O2 production by up to 75% when 100% renewable energy sources are used. Estimated CO2 emissions reductions are from 1.1 Mt CO2/yr in 2030 to 1.4Mt CO2/yr in 2045, for cumulative CO2 emission savings of more than 19 Mt by 2045. Energy consumption of the HYPER process are estimated to be over a third less than the established production route.The HYPER consortium consists of 4 RTOs, 6 SMEs and 3 industrial partners.
