Demo plant at EVONIK
The HYFO case has just successfully reached the next important milestone. A modular demonstration plant on pilot scale that consists of four process modules has been integrated into a real production environment. The demonstration plant meets the same redundancy, safety, and availability requirements as the production plant.
The modular technology approach was selected to ensure flexibility during and after the demonstration phase of the project. This means that the individual modules can be used elsewhere later. Another important aspect is that all modules were initially manufactured in a separate construction hall in which the initial commissioning also took place. Since the modules are connected in bypass of the production plant, there will only be a minimally invasive shutdown of the production plant for the demonstration plant startup. The latter is expected to start end of October 2023.
