On Thursday 16th July, a one day meeting will be held to discuss the current research and future efforts in developing novel high-temperature electrolysers for carbon dioxide utilisation (CDU). This event will also present the opportunity for researchers and students in this field to connect with each other to foster future collaborations and research.
At the University of Sheffield, we are very interested in CDU and, as part of an extensive £5.7M EPSRC funded 4CU Programme Grant, have been investigating the use of solid oxide cells (SOC) for the co-electrolysis of CO2 and H2O to produce syngas.
The two main purposes of this event are:
- To bring leaders in the SOC research together to discuss current research and future efforts in developing novel high-temperature electrolysers.
- To connect researchers and students in this field with each other to foster future collaborations and research opportunities.
With this in mind, we are encouraging, for part of the meeting, early career researchers, graduate students and post-doctorates, to attend and present a short flash presentation and/or poster on their research.
Confirmed Invited Speakers:
- Prof. Mogens Mogensen (Technical University of Denmark)
- Prof. Scott Barnett (Northwestern University, U.S.)
- Prof. San Ping Jiang (Curtin University, Australia)
- Joseph Hartvigsen (Ceramatec, Inc., U.S.)
- Prof. Guntae Kim (UNIST, Korea)
This is an exciting time in electrolysis research, both in the UK and globally, and we hope that you will be able to join us.
