We are looking for startups and scaleups that work together with BioMCN to map the production process of renewable methanol by combining hydrogen with CO2 from other processes and to identify which technical adjustments to the current production facilities at Delfzijl would be needed for this.
Green solutions to produce Hydrogen, for example, electrolysis or biomass gasification.
Applications for excess heat
Ways to reuse the excess heat produced during BioMCN’s conversion process. These can be both internal, for BioMCN’s use, or external, for example, the city’s use.
Catalyst that can be used to efficiently convert CO2 and H2 into methanol.
Software that can simulate internal mass, heat flows and process conditions of green methanol production and show areas of improvement. For example, how will the distillation process look like, when green syngas is used as a feedstock. Solutions include software using dynamic process modelling and digital twin simulation.
WHATS IN IT FOR YOU
Pilot contract with BioMCN to test your solution in a simulation, and further collaboration if successful.
Access to the BioMCN network of partners, for example, General Electric/Siemens as they are major suppliers of BioMCN’s compressors.
Access to the EBG network
Have a working prototype or demonstrator
Be able to do a pilot project in the Netherlands
The deadline for applications of proposals is on November 11th, 2019 at midnight (UTC+2).
ANNONCEMENT SELECTED STARTUPS
The announcement of selected companies will be done latest December 12th, 2019.
The selected companies will be invited for one-on-one business meetings to discuss the potential pilot with BioMCN from January 7th till 8th 2020, during Sustainable Industry Challenge – Chemport Europe edition in Groningen, the Netherlands.
The most relevant startup(s)/scaleup(s) will start with the pilot from February, 2020 onwards.
