Work Package 5 – Roadmap to Sustainable Business

We are excited to share the significant milestones we have accomplished so far in our Work Package 5 of the HYPER project:

  • Collaboration with Partners: We have engaged in extensive interaction and communication with our partners conducting experimental activities and end-users to determine the conceptual process design for a commercial HYPER process.
  • Mass and Energy Balance Estimation: We have estimated mass and energy balances and identified process bottlenecks related to chemicals usage, impurities, recycles, intermediate storage capacities, and safety impacts such as corrosivity, flammability, reactivity, and health issues.
  • Energy Consumption Assessment: We have evaluated energy consumption, focusing on the electric power demand for both upstream and downstream process steps.
  • Environmental and Economic Analysis: We have assessed the environmental impacts and economic potential of the HYPER process, identifying key cost and pollution drivers.

We are committed to ongoing process optimization to minimize material and energy demands, thereby enhancing the economic competitiveness, green profile, and safety of the HYPER process.

The significance of the HYPER process and our achievements will be detailed in an upcoming review paper. Stay tuned for more updates!
