- Unique test facility comprising a bioreactor and
electrolyzer under construction in Marl (Germany)
- High-value specialty chemicals produced from CO2
and water using electricity from renewable sources and bacteria
II will receive funding of around €3.5 million from Germany's Federal
Ministry of Education and Research
Evonik and Siemens today
launched their joint research project Rheticus II. The goal is to develop an
efficient and powerful test plant that will use carbon dioxide (CO2) and water as
well as electricity from renewable sources and bacteria to produce specialty
chemicals. In the Rheticus I project, the two companies worked
for two years to develop the technically feasible basis for artificial
photosynthesis using a bioreactor and electrolyzers. Evonik and Siemens are now
combining these two, previously separate, plants in a test facility at Evonik’s
site in Marl (Germany). Rheticus II will run until 2021 and will receive
funding of around €3.5 million from Germany’s Federal Ministry of Education and
