A team of Chemical Engineering students recently won the Electe scenario competition. The team wrote a plan to make the steel production of Tata in IJmuiden more sustainable with solid oxide electrolysis cells (SOEC). In 2023, the three students will join the Electro Trail Europe (Electe).
At the final at the Brightlands Chemelot Campus in Geleen, during the European Industry and Energy Summit 2022, the three final teams presented their white paper. Organizers knowledge platform Voltachem and journalistic media company Industrielinqs had given a clear assignment. The student teams had to write an investment proposal for a technology based on electrification and / or electrochemistry, with which an important step can be taken in industrial transformation around 2035.
The teams were judged by a jury and by the public. The team from Groningen emerged as the winner. Students Alessia De Gregorio, Alexandru Trofin and Cosmina Mighiu will therefore get the chance to, together with Voltachem, Industrielinqs and partners, visit various electrification and electrochemical projects in Europe during the so-called Electe in the summer of 2023.
The other two teams in the final were a team from the University of Maastricht/Brightsite and TNO.
