Fast Track to Innovation (FTI)

About the Project

FERTILISER FROM AIR BY PLASMA TREATMENT

In a consortium, ScanArc Plasma Technologies AB , Antwerp University and N2 Applied has been granted a FTI project of 1.8 MEUR to optimise the plasma technology and develop an imporved generation of the technology.

The main objective of this project is to commercialise the technology through research and development of an optimised solution

The project runs from 1 December 2020 to 30 November 2022

The project is divided into 6 work packages:
WP 1 Optimisation of the plasma Reactor
[WP 2 Optimisation of the absorption system]
WP 3 Commercial umit design
[WP 4 Piloting and product verification]
WP 5 Communication and dissemination
WP 6 Project Management

Partners

N2 Applied AS (www.n2.no) is a Norwegian technology development company, with the head office in Asker and a test centre located close to Kongsberg, in addition to offices in Netherlands and the UK. N2 Applied is a catalyst and an incubator for high-tech initiatives related to nitrogen, with the plasma unit as its main product and the basis of its technology platform. N2’s core activities are technology development, sourcing and value-added services for the end-user.

ScanArc Plasma Technologies is a supplier of plasma solutions and our ambition is to electrify industries and help our customers create a sustainable business. With today’s global trends in electrification and carbon reduction, we see not only an increased interest in metallurgical applications, but also a wider range of industries looking for sustainable low-carbon technologies. ScanArc’s plasma system includes an efficient and environmentally friendly technology for converting electrical energy into hot gas. With more than 30 years of experience in the field, we deliver high quality standalone plasma systems and flexible applications.

The research group PLASMANT belongs to the chemistry department of University of Antwerp (UA). It forms a Center of Excellence at UA, called “PLASMA”, and also belongs to the “Sustainable Chemistry” consortium at UA. The group studies plasma chemistry, plasma reactor design and plasma-surface interactions (including solid catalyst surfaces, liquids and biomolecules), by means of computer modelling and experiments, for various applications. The two major applications are (i) green chemistry (conversion of greenhouse gases and other inert molecules like N2, into renewable fuels and value-added chemicals, by plasma and plasma catalysis), and (ii) plasma medicine (focusing on cancer treatment).
