The University of Cantabria team has a great experience working on i) Advanced treatments of industrial effluents, regeneration and reutilization of waters. ii) Innovative gas purification processes (H2) iii) Development of advanced materials for H2 generation. iv) Implementation of technology (fuel cell and engines) fueled by H2. vii) Process and Product Sustainability through Life Cycle Thinking. viii) Simulation and optimization of Chemical Processes. ix) Valorization of CO2 into high added value products by applying electro-reduction processes.
The research group CEFT – Transport Phenomena Research Center of the faculty of Engineering of University of Porto (FEUP) is organized in 3 subgroups: Energy, Multiphase Flows and Biological Fluids and Microfluidics and Complex Fluids Flows. In the Energy field it has a great experience working on Fuel Cell area (modelling and experimental studies, macro and micro scale), namely Direct Methanol and Ethanol Fuel Cells , PEM Fuel Cells, PEM Electrolysers and Regenerative Fuel cells, Microbial Fuel Cells (MFC) and Hydrogen generators and storage systems comprising Chemical Hydrides.
Hydrogen Safety Engineering and Research Centre (HySAFER) at Ulster University carries out fundamental and industry-driven research, consultancy, knowledge and technology transfer in the area of safety science and engineering, primarily hydrogen technologies. HySAFER has experience in addressing knowledge gaps and technological bottlenecks in hydrogen safety research and research-led education. It is internationally recognised with external funding from prestigious research funding agencies exceeding €6.5M.
The Team based at Dublin City University have experience in; i) the design and synthesis of new materials for photocatalytic hydrogen generation, ii) and electrocatalytic routes to H2 iii) the development of novel and more robust materials for CO2 valorisation using both photo-and electrocatytic approaches iv) and probing the reaction pathways and dynamics of these materials using time resolved processes.
CEMCA is a “unité mixte de recherche (UMR)” of CNRS at Université de Bretagne Occidentale (UBO) in Brest (France). The lab is composed of about 25 researchers dispatched in two teams: one is specialised in inorganic chemistry (CIEl) and the other one in organic chemistry (COSM).
The National Laboratory for Energy and Geology (LNEG) is a State laboratory of the Ministry of Economy that engages in R&D oriented to the needs of society and enterprises. Investing in a sustainable research, along with the international best practices, ensures that its areas of expertise allow an adequate response to the needs of the business sector, so positioning as an active partner of the major networks and collaborative platforms in the areas of Energy and Geology. The activity is materialized through RD&I projects at National, European and International levels; provision of services and contracts to Industry and to the State itself providing expertise, advice and assessment, also acting as a qualified participant in designing public policies in the area of Energy Technologies. LNEG was awarded with the «HR Excellence in Research» Logo from the European Commission.
