February 18th 2021
Paulien Herder is professor in Engineering systems design in energy & industry and department head of the Chemical Engineering department at Delft University of Technology. She currently co-leads the e-Refinery institute at TU Delft, which is a university-wide institute into electrochemical conversion and storage, involving the faculties of Applied Sciences, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, and Technology, Policy & Management.
February 16th 2021
KEROGREEN, together with several EU-funded projects in the field of Carbon Capture and Conversion, are jointly organising an international workshop entitled "CO2 capture and utilization", on 16th and 17th February 2021, at the University of Eindhoven, The Netherlands. Besides presentations of the involved projects, external invitees from both industry and science will give lectures on the topic. The workshop is currently planned as a mixed physical/online event. Participation is free of charge but registration is mandatory.
February 4th 2021
DIFFER researcher Timo Ravensbergen will defend his PhD thesis titled "Advanced methods in control of the core density and divertor detachment in nuclear fusion devices" on 4 February 2021 from 13:30 - 14:30 CEST. The defense will take place online. The thesis is still under embargo awaiting the publication of one of the chapters and will most likely not be available before the date of the defense.
January 18th 2021
Physics@Veldhoven is a large congress that provides a topical overview of physics in the Netherlands, organized by NWO. Traditionally, young researchers are given the chance to present themselves and their work alongside renowned names from the Dutch and international physics community.  The programme covers Statistical Physics & Soft condensed matter, Physics of Fluids, Plasma & Fusion Physics, Quantum Physics, Nanoscale Physics, Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics, Materials Physics, Particle Physics, Astroparticle Physics and Physics for Technology.

High temperature endothermic reduction of metal oxides, which can liberate oxygen gas at achievable conditions, converts thermal energy to stored chemical energy. A subsequent re-oxidation step either recovers the stored energy as heat or utilizes it to drive other chemical reactions. If the re-oxidation step restores the material to its original state so that the two-steps can repeat indefinitely, the sequence of reactions constitutes a thermochemical cycle.
