Based on air and water as only feedstocks, and driven only by renewable energy as the sole energy source, this new approach addresses an economically viable and green alternative to the classical energy-demanding anthraquinone oxidation (AO) process.
This EU-funded project Power2Hype develops a sustainable route for H2O2 production through a pioneering electrochemical process:
cathodic oxygen reduction is paired with anodic water oxidation, enabling efficient H2O2 production in both half-cells. A downstream processing unit is developed and integrated with the electrolyser, yielding highly concentrated H2O2 solutions. In Power2Hype, the entire process chain is demonstrated at a technically relevant scale.
Optimise the cell components for large-scale electrochemical production of hydrogen peroxide.
Development, and integration of a new electrochemical process and reactor.
Demonstrating the innovative electrochemical process in the relevant environment.
Determinate the feasibility and sustainability of the new process, from the technical, environmental, and (socio)economic perspectives.
Implement an exploitation strategy for the project developments.
Ensure the dissemination of the project results and the promotion of the project, through ad-hoc strategies that target Power2Hype audience and key stakeholders.
