New oxides as support for the anode in PEMEC

Location

Greater Copenhagen area

Electrolysis of water is a convenient way to store energy as hydrogen. The PEM Electrolysis Cell (PEMEC) has many advantages; Compactness, operation in a wide power range, and the possibility of deliver high purity H2. However, the use of expensive iridium on the anode side (oxygen electrode), makes large scale operation of the PEMEC too costly. In order to reduce the cost it is necessary to either replace or at least lower the use of iridium. In this project novel perovskites based on Cr or Mn will be studied as support materials for the anode in PEMEC's.

The project includes:

-Synthesis of novel perovskite supports based on Y, Cr, Mn, Mg, Ni and/or Cu

-Powder XRD

-Rietveld refinements

-Conductivity measurements

-Corrosion studies

Technical University of Denmark

For almost two centuries DTU, Technical University of Denmark, has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of H.C. Ørsted – the father of electromagnetism – who founded the university in 1829 to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.


Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increases and develops our partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s public sector consultancy.
