Success for iNEW as Second Project Phase Launched

How can the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) be used industrially and turned into an asset for a sustainable circular economy as part of structural change in the Rhineland region? This is just one of the questions that the iNEW research project intends to answer. Coordinated by Jülich’s Institute of Energy and Climate Research – Fundamental Electrochemistry (IEK-9), the project is an incubator for sustainable electrochemical value chains. After a successful launch in autumn 2019, the necessary conditions were established during an initial project phase for the partners involved in the project from science and industry to jointly ensure that innovations reach market maturity significantly faster than before. The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is funding the second phase of the project to the tune of around € 24 million until 2024. Thomas Rachel, member of the German Bundestag and Parliamentary State Secretary to the BMBF, recently presented the official notification of funding during a ceremony at Burg Obbendorf. Prof. Andreas Pinkwart, Minister of Economics of North Rhine-Westphalia, also attended the event.
