Eric Appelman, CTO, Brightlands Chemelot Campus
The chemical industry is a large emitter of CO2 and a lot of that is produced by heating for high-temperature processes. Electricity is a very suitable alternative to provide this heat and has the potential to do so in a carbon neutral way, when generated in a renewable fashion. At Brightlands Chemelot Campus we foster such heating technologies to ensure a sustainable future of the chemical industry.
