EARTO presents winners of EARTO 2022 Innovation Awards
On the occasion of the 9th EARTO Policy Event held in Brussels on 12 October 2022, the European Association of Research and Technology Organisations presented the winners of its 2022 EARTO Innovation Awards. The winners are EARTO Members HELMHOLTZ and VTT.
- HELMHOLTZ in collaboration with INERATEC received the award in the Impact Delivered category for the development of sustainable e-Fuels and chemicals as well as modular chemical plants for Power-to-X and Gasto-Liquid applications which actively contribute to a more sustainable future with lower emissions by providing a sustainable solution for hard to defossilise sectors.
- VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland received the award in the Impact Expected category for the development of a technology to reuse CO2 in the precast concrete industry, which transforms gaseous CO2 into solid carbonates at the concrete hardening process, decreasing the carbon footprint of the products.
Created in 2009, the EARTO Innovation Awards highlight the various areas of activities of research and technology organisations (RTOs) and illustrate RTOs’ concrete contributions to innovation with high societal impact through the two categories: “Impact Delivered” and “Impact Expected”. The award winners are chosen by an independent jury.
