Siemens: launches research project with Evonik
(CercleFinance.com) - Siemens and Evonik announce the launch of their joint Rheticus II research project to develop a test plant that will use CO2, water, renewable electricity and bacteria to produce specialty chemicals.
Through the Rheticus I project, both groups worked for two years to develop a technically feasible database for artificial photosynthesis using a bioreactor and electrolysers.
Their combination will be tested on the Evonik site in Marl, Germany. Rheticus II will run until 2021 and will receive funding of about 3.5 million euros from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
