International Day of Women and Girls in Science 2019

On February 11th and 12th, 2019, Dr. Gema Pérez, member of the University of Cantabria team of HYLANTIC Project, visited the secondary school “Las Llamas”, located in Santander (Cantabria, Spain), in the frame of the celebration of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. During the visits, she talked about the role of a chemical engineering and explained to the secondary students the main objectives of HYLANTIC Project. She highlighted the importance of working with researchers from different countries and different knowledge areas.

 

Scientific Publication

V. Molkov, M. Dadashzadeh, D. Makarov, researchers from Ulster University have recently published the work “Physical model of on board hydrogen storage tank thermal behaviour during fuelling”, in the International Journal of Hydrogen Energy, as a result of their research in the frame of the European Project HYLANTIC.

2nd Follow-up Meeting

The second follow-up meeting of the European Project “Atlantic Network for Renewable Generation and Supply of Hydrogen to promote high energy efficiency – HYLANTIC” was held in Brest (France) on November 6th, 2018. During the meeting fifteen partners from different institutions of the atlatnci area presented their progresses in the project and discusse about the future actions to be done before next meeting, that will take place in Belfast next March 2019.

Congress: EHEC 2018

Several members of the european project HYLANTIC attended the European Hydrogen Energy Conference – EHEC 2018 celebrated in Málaga (Spain) on March 14-16, 2018.

  1. Dadashzadeh, S. Kashkarov, D. Makarov and V. Molkov, from Ulster University presented their work “Safet design of a system hydrogen storage tank – TPRD”.
  2. X. Nunes, D. A. Silva, C. M. Rangel, A. M. F. R. Pinto, from U Porto and LNEG presented their work “Hydrogen production from sodium borohydride (NaBH4): Study of the CMC. Influence in the recyclability of the byproduct”.

Congress: WHEC 2018

X. Nunes, C.M. Rangel, A. M. F. R. Pinto, researchers from U Porto and LNEG presented the contribution “Hydrogen production from sodium borohydride: Development of a circular economy through by-product recycling”, in the 22nd World Hydrogen Energy Conference, WHEC 2018, celebrated in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) in June 2018.

 

Final Degree Project

The student of the Chemical Engineering Degree of the University of Cantabria, Sergio San Martín developes his final degree project in the frame of the european project HYLANTIC, under the supervision of Dr. Alfredo Ortiz, coordinator of the european project. The final degree project was entitled “Start-up and characterization of a lab scale electrolyzer under different operational conditions”.
