Brightsite receives NXTGEN Hightech subsidy for CO2-free plasma technology

Brightsite has recently achieved a significant milestone by receiving the NXTGEN Hightech subsidy for the development of their revolutionary CO2-free plasma technology.

This funding, sourced from the NXTGEN Hightech project, an initiative of the Growth Fund, will play a crucial role in scaling this technology for industrial applications. The uniqueness of this technology lies in its ability to convert methane into hydrogen and high-quality carbon products without CO2 emissions, which could be a game-changer for the chemical industry.

This breakthrough is the result of collaboration between Brightsite, Maastricht University, and Brightlands Chemelot Campus within the Brighsite Plasmalab. The project focuses on refining and developing both existing and new plasma technologies, involving students, TNO, Sitech Services, and other business partners. Hans Kroon from Sitech is part of the project team.

Brightsite is a public-private partnership between Sitech Services, TNO, Maastricht University, and Brightlands Chemelot Campus, focusing on the sustainability of the chemical industry, including at the Chemelot site.
