AMR: EARTO Innovation Award 2018
EARTO, the renowned European Association of Research & Technology Organisations, has awarded AMR (Advanced Membrane Reactors) its second prize within the category of “Impact Expected”. AMR is a project developed by TECNALIA, that consists of a hydrogen production system that uses advanced membrane reactors. This award, which rewards innovations with a significant social or economic impact, was received by Jon Zuñiga of TECNALIA in Brussels.
AMR is a high purity hydrogen on-site generation system that reduces transport costs and compression/decompression losses. This innovative system is based on the philosophy of process intensification and integrates in a single unit processes that traditionally were made in four stages. Thus, it produces high purity hydrogen in a small and medium scale efficiently, what entails significant financial savings.
VTT won the first award within the category of “Impact Delivered” on account of a technology that transforms molding plastics into intelligent structures that encapsulate sophisticated electronic functionalities by using injections. Moreover, Helmhotz was the one who won the “Impact Expected” Award with a technology that enables identifying microorganisms with the capability of producing building blocks from renewable materials.
