15:15 – 15:30 | Wednesday 29 November | The Stage | Fraunhofer IKTS
Research Associate at Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS
A young researcher at Fraunhofer IKTS (Hermsdorf site) with background in chemical and material science engineering. Main specializations include catalysis, nanomaterial synthesis, characterization, testing under variable conditions and process optimization. Gathered research experience in Germany (Forschungszentrum Jülich), Netherlands (TNO), and completed education from Germany and India. Currently working with ceramic membrane reactors for catalytic applications, like methanation, methanol synthesis and reforming, ammonia decomposition and formation, syn-gas production, etc. For hydrogen synthesis using water electrolysis (WE), our research is based on alkaline water electrolysis and anion-exchange-membrane (AEM) WE.
“Catalytic ceramic membrane reactors allow us to generate hydrogen offshore via methanol reforming or ammonia cracking and promote its application as a fuel.”
