ERN - Energy Raw Materials Network
The Energy Raw Materials Network (ERN) continues the activities of the former information platform “German Center for Gasification Technologies” (DeZeV). Currently, ten partners from science and industry in the fields of energy and Carbon resource conversion are active in the ERN.
The network provides a platform for collaboration, knowledge transfer and exchange through regular meetings, courses, workshops and conferences.
Topics addressed by the ERN include new developments, current projects and operational experiences linked to:
- The efficient, sustainable and economical utilization of primary and secondary carbon resources in particular for the provision of base chemicals, fuels, coke, other carbonaceous products and hydrogen
- Strategies, approaches and technologies for reduction of carbon footprint, e.g. CO2 minimization, carbon capture, storage and utilization (CCS&U).
The network activities promote scientific exchange along the whole carbon innovation and value chain from fundamental research to commercial applications. The ERN will be integrated into the Circular Carbon Economy Network (CCE). This network brings together science and industry partners from energy, chemical, waste management and recycling sectors and focuses on promoting a transformation from a linear to circular carbon economy and closing the carbon cycle.
