From June 14 to 17, PERFORM consortium partners TNO, University of Messina, and VITO attended the 12th European Symposium on Electrochemical Engineering (ESEE 2021), held online.
During the venue, Deepak Pant, Senior Scientist at VITO, Roman Latsuzbaia, Scientist at TNO & Voltachem, Carlos Sánchez Martínez, Chemical Research Scientist at TNO and Rosalba Passalacqua presented different abstracts and posters in several sessions:
Roman was involved in the sessions: Fast-tracking electrochemical innovations & matchmaking, and Electrochemical processes applications, and presented the abstract Electrochemical process development for production of biobased maleic acid. For his part, Deepak participated in the session Progress in electrocatalysis and electrocatalytic materials and showcased the abstract Development and upscaling of gas diffusion electrodes for wastewater treatment and electrosynthesis of chemicals. Likewise, Carlos was also involved in the preparation of the abstract and presentation entitled Overcoming mass transport limitations in electrochemical reactors with a pulsating flow electrolyser, together with Roman and other scientist’s colleagues. Finally, Rosalba was in charge of the preparation of the poster NiFe Oxides as Anodic Materials for the Electrocatalytic Oxidation of Glucose to Glucaric Acid.
The scope of ESEE 2021 focused on the topic Electrochemistry for electrification and energy transition toward a sustainable future with the aim to showcase scientific advances in physical, chemical, and biochemical routes towards a future where electrochemical engineering is part of a sustainable society, closing resource cycles and contributing to zero-pollution mobility and manufacturing.
