2D Trifunctional Catalysts for Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Storage

Project description

New 2D based catalysts for energy conversion and storage

The world’s fossil fuel reserves are predicted to be depleted in the next century. Due to this and the increase in global warming, EU policies have called for the decrease use of carbon based fossil fuels and the development of alternative energy resources. Hence, it is of paramount importance to conduct research into alternative energy conversion and storage technologies now. The EU-funded 2DTriCat4Energy project plans to design new, cheap and functional catalysts for use in electrolysers, fuel cells and supercapacitors. The focus will be on 2D transition metal oxide materials which have been shown to be more conductive compared to their bulk counterparts.
