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…
