A new publication demonstrates the successful manufacturing of active Ni-Al catalysts for the CO2 methanation using 3D printing.

This year's MEP colloquium took place on July 27th 2022 in Garching. More than 100 young scientists participated in the colloquium. Advances in various fields of energy research to meet the challenges of climate change were addressed. During the day, three exciting keynote speeches were delivered by Moritz Limbacher (German Energy Agency), Dr. Christoph Wieland (Chair of Energy Systems, TUM) and…

Wacker Chemie AG and the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have deepened their partnership with the founding of the TUM WACKER Institute for Industrial Biotechnology. The goal of the new institute is to further develop research in the field of industrial biotechnology in Germany at the highest international level. The two partners will bring their combined forces to bear on researching new…

Excellent mood at the first face-to-face TUM.Hydrogen and PtX Network Meeting for over two years

The “Flightpath 2050” report documents Europe’s vision for aviation to achieve a drastic reduction in pollutant emissions of CO2 and NOx, as well as emitted noise. The fuel change from kerosene to hydrogen is considered as a step closer towards the goal of decarbonization. The project “Greener-RQL” which started at the Professorship of Sustainable Future Mobility in July 2022 supports the…

Polyoxymethylene dimethyl ethers (OME) are promising e-fuels for diesel engines, combining carbon-neutral production and low-emission engine operation by virtue of soot-free combustion. The emissions of diesel engines fueled with OME and in blends with diesel have been studied extensively using single-cylinder research engines under laboratory conditions. Emissions from a series engine using an…

Since August 2021, research in the field of sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) has been conducted at the Chair of Turbomachinery and Flight Propulsion (LTF).
