News from the fields of hydrogen and power-to-X

The electrolysis of water by means of a proton exchange membrane (PEM) is a very promising technology for the production of green hydrogen. A new publication now shows ways to modify these membranes, which are commonly used in industry, to improve their usability and quality.

How can synthetic fuels contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions in the transport sector? Will they make it possible to fulfill ambitious reduction targets? This is what the project NaMoSyn is all about – the German acronym stands for „sustainable mobility with synthetic fuels“. The project will be presented in a virtual talk event on June 30. In a podium discussion, experts from different…

LES is continuously engaged in experimental and simulative investigation of the full power-to-X process route. Different reactor concepts for different process configurations (CO2-PtX, biomass gasification with electricity integration, novel biogas conversion) are investigated and optimized.

The third roadmap of the Kopernikus P2X project will be published in July. In the middle of the second project phase, the newest research results on the conversion of electricity into synthetic material, fuels, gas and heat are shown.

Prof. Dr. Hubert Gasteiger on the TV show Planet Wissen in an interview about current developments and future potentials of the energy carrier hydrogen.

For several years, the es chair has been involved in the modeling and validation of component models for the power-to-X storage chain, in particular PEM electrolyzer, PEM fuel cell and H2 storage tank. The goal is to reproduce the behavior of the system components with respect to efficiency and aging as accurately as possible and to integrate an image of the system components into the storage…

Remain up to date with the MSE colloquia

The Munich School of Engineering (MSE) organises a colloquium every year to bring together the diverse activities on energy research at Bavarian universities. PhD students and researchers from different faculties and universities present their work for this purpose. External guests from science and industry provide insights into their areas of expertise. The next colloquium will take place in July 2021. [MORE]
