 VITOHeleen DeWever Academic Bioenergy VITO stands for the Flemish Institute for Technological Research. VITO is a leading European independent research/consultancy center in the areas of cleantech and sustainable development, elaborating solutions for the grand societal challenges of tomorrow: climate change, food security, a sustainable energy supply, the ageing population and scarcity of resources. VITO's business unit of Separation and Conversion Technology is very active in CO2 conversions and is composed of >100 researchers, managers, support staff and students.

The topic of the upcoming FOA is at the core of VITO’s Sustainable Chemistry research programme, which focuses among others on bioconversions for the valorization of the novel feedstock CO2 and on bioprocess intensification. VITO has been actively working on CO2 bio- and electroconversions for many years now. Research on bioconversions started with fermentative production of PHB (polyhydroxybutyrate) from CO2 using pure cultures and was then expanded to producing PHB/V (polyhydroxybutyrate/valerate) copolymers and tuning PHB/V composition to the specifications of selected applications. More recently, the range of organisms was broadened from aerobic to anaerobic ones, and the range of products to gaseous (isobutene) and dissolved ones (lactate). VITO recently acquired a high pressure fermentor which can be used under ATEX compliant conditions for aerobic and anaerobic conversions up to 10 bar. Test work encompasses the use of both synthetic gases and real offgas streams. Moreover, experimental work is complemented with and supported by model-based approaches.

In the area of CO2 bioelectrosynthesis, activities include conversions using pure or mixed cultures as well as (cascade) enzymatic conversions. Moreover, VITO develops its proprietary gas diffusion electrodes for implementation in (bio)electrochemistry and can supply tailored electrodes up to 0.8-1 m².

Finally, strong expertise is present on techno-economical assessment and benchmarking of CO2 conversion technologies.

 PARCJerome Unidad Large Business Other Energy Technologies PARC, with the support of our parent company Xerox, is continually innovating in the Cleantech space and applying our expertise in hardware and software systems for developing scalable, business-viable solutions to the big challenges in energy and the environment.

We seek to apply our advanced spray technology (PARC Filament Extension Atomizer or FEA) and capabilities in handling viscous and complex fluids to circumvent mass transfer limits in chemical and biological processing. FEA sits in the unique spot of being able to spray or aerosolize high viscosity fluids that cannot be sprayed using conventional means, with tailored spray characteristics (particle size distribution, velocity). The viscosities our technology can handle can be as high 1,000 Pa-s (more viscous than peanut butter).

We've applied this capability to various areas such as drug delivery, spray coating, powder manufacturing and spray drying (on-going work). For the ARPA-E Carbon Bioconversion program, we are interested in developing this as a novel spray column reactor, for circumventing mass transfer limits when in conversion or utilization with high viscosity fluid feedstocks.
