Development of tailored porous redox materials


Novel redox materials will be developed, able to achieve significantly higher energy conversion efficiencies. To this end, a dedicated computational model of the heat and mass transfer characteristics of redox materials with different structures will be created. With the help of this model, advanced structures will be designed, fabricated and tested on a 5 kW-level before the structures are scaled up to the power level of 50 kW and tested at the unique research facility in Móstoles, Spain, maturing the technology up to validation in relevant environment..

Possibilities for recycling the redox materials are investigated as well. As material recycling is a crucial issue for the viability of the production pathway, this task will deliver important information for the analysis of economic and environmental performance of the fuel pathway.
