DECHEMA Virtual Talks: CHEM|ampere

CHEM|ampere aims to develop technologies for the sustainable CO2-neutral production of chemicals. In this series of online events, experts will present and discuss the approaches and goals of the initiative. The DECHEMA Virtual Talks are free of charge.

The concept of this research initiative is based on the use of renewable electricity as a secondary energy form to activate the non-fossil and readily available raw materials CO2, H2O, O2 and N2. CHEM|ampere focuses on three electrical production technologies:

plasma processes
electrolysis processes
electrically heated reactors

CHEM|ampere was established at the University of Stuttgart on 1 January 2020 and includes ten research projects which will be connected and expanded. The initiative is part of the ongoing efforts to achieve the CO2 reduction goals set by the Federal Government's Climate Protection Plan 2030 and the current resolutions of the Climate Cabinet. All sectors - including the chemical industry - must achieve a 55% reduction in CO2 emissions by 2030 compared to the reference year 1990. Even though the chemical industry has already achieved considerable CO2 reductions, there is still a long way to go before production will be largely CO2-neutral in 2050.

They take place online every thursday from 15:00h until 16:00h.

Search / advanced search of the idw archives
Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
