KEROGREEN Winter School:
”Future directions in research on Power-to-X for sustainable chemicals & fuels”
10.-11.2.2022 (online)

KEROGREEN, together with the research projects E-Fuel and BECCU, and the EERA Joint Programme Energy Storage (EERA JPES), organizes an online winter school on 10-11 February 2022.

The event is focused on providing the latest developments on the Power-to-X related technologies and their future directions. Especially concepts aiming at ensuring sustainability will be pointed out. Following topics will be addressed:

  • CO2 capture
  • Electrolysis
  • Co-Electrolysis
  • Plasmolysis
  • Chemical synthesis
  • Fuel synthesis
  • System integration
  • System, process, reactor and kinetic modelling

Beside key note presentations and overview presentations of involved research projects, the winter school will give the opportunity to young researchers to present their research activities and results in either short talks or posters. Virtual visits of some of the research institutes are also planned in video sessions. The winter school will also include a special session dedicated to presentations from doctoral students from the EERA JPES network (EERA PhD day).

The EERA PhD day will offer PhD students from the EERA JPES SP2 the opportunity to present their PhD project and to receive feedback from other PhD students as well as from senior scientists from the same research environment. Furthermore, the best contribution will receive an official EERA award and funding for an open access publication or a conference participation. All submissions will be evaluated by a selected scientific board consisting of Esperanza Ruiz Martínez (CIEMAT), Peter Holtappels (DTU) and Adelbert Goede (DIFFER).

Agenda

A preliminary agenda of the winter school can be downloaded here.

Participation

The winter school will be carried out online via zoom in the form of a webinar. It’s free of charge but a registration is mandatory. See registration form below.

The target audience of the event are doctoral students, post-docs and researchers in general, as well as private companies who want to learn more about the technologies and research methods and/or current research projects in the Power-to-X field.

Event registration can be found from KEROGREEN events webpage: https://www.kerogreen.eu/208.php
