An exponential growth in CO2 concentration over the past few decades has led to an accelerated impact of climate change on planet earth. In a bid to curb these emissions, people across the globe are slowly transitioning towards renewable energy sources with battery technology aiding this growth. Given that battery technology is still in its...

A comparative study of three different membrane electrode assemblies for electrochemical CO2 reduction is performed in a flowcell setup utilizing gaseous CO2 as a reagent. The membrane electrode assembly consists of a bipolar or exchange membrane, an Ag-mesh catalyst and a gas diffusion layer. The counterreaction occurring on the opposite of the...

The worlds energy demand is increasing however, the majority of the energy supply is still based on fossil fuels. The consumption of fossil fuels results in the emission of carbon dioxide which is one of the main greenhouse gases responsible for the ongoing climate change. In order to reduce the carbon dioxide emissions, more and more energy is...

Owing to global warming and fast depleting fossil reserves, the world is currently witnessing an energy transition into cleaner and greener energy sources like the wind and solar energy. At present, most of this clean energy is converted into electricity and used up directly or stored in the grids or batteries to be used later. Chemical storage...

Braams, F.P. (author)
A highly porous fractal-like nanostructured metal oxide catalyst support with characteristic dimensions of a few nanometers is formed by producing metal nanoparticles in the gas phase, oxidizing them and depositing/sintering them on a nanofiber network. By admixing nanoparticles in the aerosol phase, these can evenly be distributed in the...
