Catalytic Systems for Chemical Energy Storage

Catalytic Systems for Chemical Energy Storage

In order to limit global warming, low-emission technologies for energy storage and supply of fuels, as well as basic chemicals, are being researched. For the economic operation of the heterogeneously catalyzed synthesis of these chemical products, research focusses on innovative reactor and process concepts. Precious metal catalysts are often used and investigated for these processes, which indisputably lead to high activities and selectivities. However, due to the limited availability and high price of precious metal components, special attention should be paid to alternative catalytic systems. Therefore, the working group focuses on both, the use of low-precious metal catalytic systems and innovative process concepts for energy storage. A detailed description of the research projects, which are carried out in cooperation with different academic and industrial partners, can be found in the following overview.
