Pulse method for long-term stable and selective CO2 electrolysis to ethylene on copper-based gas diffusion electrodes

Duration: 01.01.2024 - 31.12.2027
The electrochemical reduction of anthropogenic CO2 into valuable chemicals is a promising method on the way to CO2 neutrality. It offers a sustainable synthesis route for converting CO2 from renewable surplus electricity into valuable precursors and fuels. Copper as the utilized electrocatalyst shows the unique ability to C-C bonds and thus enables the production of economically attractive hydrocarbons such as ethylene and ethanol. More...

Hybrid Fe Redox Flow Batteries: Theory and Experiments

Duration: 01.01.2024 - 31.12.2027
The increasing use of renewable energy sources evokes the necessity of efficient long-term storage systems. Redox-flow-batteries can be a solution to this problem, as they can balance fluctuations in the electrical supply grid. More

Structured functional materials for multiple transport in nanoscale spatial constraints

Duration: 01.10.2023 - 30.09.2026

Fuel cells utilize the controlled chemical conversion of oxygen and hydrogen into water, releasing electrical energy in the process. Thus, this technology, in combination with green hydrogen, offers a promising alternative for transitioning to a more climate-neutral energy infrastructure. An important prerequisite for a highly efficient system is the catalyst used, which is usually... more
