The global chemicals sector comprises a complex mix of industries and products, contributing to a significant collective carbon footprint
To reach the Net Zero Emissions by 2050 Scenario…government and industry efforts need to address CO2 emissions from chemical production, as well as from the use and disposal of chemical products
International Energy Agency
As well as the volume being significant, the figures follow an upward trend with direct CO2 emissions from primary chemical production at 920 Mt CO2 in 2020…a 2.1% average annual increase from 2015.
New alternatives for Chemicals
Powered by low-carbon electricity sources, Genvia provides chemical plants with new opportunities to produce greener products and contribute to a cleaner value chain. Our technologies have application across a broad variety of large-scale industrial processes, from ammonia production to plastics.
Reduce thermal losses, lower emissions
Thermally-charged electrolysis has been engineered to consume less electrical energy than competing systems while producing an equivalent volume of hydrogen. Coupling exothermic reactions to steam generation improves electrolysis efficiency.
More hydrogen, fewer losses
Genvia’s high efficiency solid oxide technology delivers more energy-efficient electrolysis performance when compared to existing PEM and alkaline-based systems.
