In collaboration with ArcelorMittal this project aims to gain basic technical and scientific knowledge on electrochemical ammonia separation from the coke oven gas at the coke plant, coupled to a novel application for ammonia valorization via microbial protein. The integration of several waste resources on site into such a product is complex and ambitious, but can have a high environmental and economic impact.
