Title: Big Impact of Nanomaterials on Renewable Energy Infrastructure
Session: Monday 5 October, 14:30

Abstract

HyET is leading the world with development of silent "Electrochemical Hydrogen Compression" (EHC) achieving record pressures up to 100 MPa in one single stage. This ground-breaking technology is now gaining interest, because hydrogen gas itself has become an important vector in the energy infrastructure. Hydrogen can be used as an electric energy storage medium, useful for cyclic renewable energy sources like wind and solar power. It is also a range-extending fuel for zero-emission electric vehicles. In the total chain of hydrogen production, purification, compression, storage and conversion to energy, nano-materials play a vital role in enabling these processes. This paper highlights these materials in the energy infrastructure in general and in the electrochemical compression of hydrogen in particular. HyET searches, tests and co-develops these materials to meet the hydrogen processing specifications of the energy infrastructure of the future.

 

 

 

 

Bio

Martijn Mulder holds an MSc degree in physical organic chemistry (Utrecht University) and a PhD degree in inorganic materials chemistry (Leiden University). As a senior scientist at HyET-Hydrogen Efficiency Technologies in Arnhem, The Netherlands, he develops the membrane technology of HyET's electrochemical hydrogen compressor and he contributes to HyET's R&D and marketing strategy as a management team member. Before HyET he has accumulated over 10 years of experience in product development and diagnostics in proton exchange membrane fuel cells at the Energy Research Centre of The Netherlands (ECN) and in industry (Nedstack). Throughout his career he has gained expertise in electro-catalysis, membrane technology and hydrogen generation/conversion technology.
