Catalysis with Metals group
What is CatLab?
Hydrogen is a key building block for a successful energy transition. The main innovation in CatLab is the use of thin-film technologies from solar technology for the synthesis of customised catalysts. CatLab is anchored in BASIC RESEARCH and in parallel there is a bridge to APPLICATION.
- Generation of green H2
- Long-distance transport and storage of H2 by synthetic energy carriers (e.g. NH3, methanol, methane, LOHC)
- Energy-efficient further conversions into synthetic fuels and basic chemicals
- Electrical energy supply for catalytic processes
- Research into the interaction of active catalyst component with the carrier substance
Thin films samples preparation is carried out by Helhmholtz Zentrum Berlin
