Outcome of Nobian's participation in the Sustainable Industry Challenge: Nobian in talks with innovative start-up Adionics17 November 2023
Nobian and innovative start-up Adionics will work together to evaluate the application of technologies in the field of salt extraction from brine streams.
The meeting between Adionics and Nobian took place as part of ChemPort Europe's Sustainable Industry Challenge. This invites scale-ups from around the world to help solve innovation challenges to become fully sustainable, alongside Nobian, BASF, Cosun Beet, RWE and Teijin Aramid. The initiative fits perfectly with Nobian's ambition to become one of the most sustainable chemical companies in Europe.
Adionics can provide a unique technology for the salt production process to extract more salt and valuable minerals from brine streams while using less water and energy. After laboratory studies, the parties intend to proceed with the construction of a pilot plant at Nobian's salt plant in Chemie Park Delfzijl as an intermediate step towards the final application.
The size and scale of Nobian's salt production also offers great opportunities to extract not only more salt but also minerals from the brine. At the same time, we can reduce water and energy consumption. The collaboration makes the process even more sustainable.
