Science Week 2018: "Print your Energy" at the IREC

In the framework of the 23rd Science Week, an initiative dedicated to the dissemination of science, the IREC will organize next November 9th at 10h a workshop led by Dr. Marc Torrell and Dr. Marc Nuñez, both of them researchers of the Nanoionics and Fuel Cells group, will bring the research developed in the IREC laboratories through 3D Printing closer to the society.

3D Printing is mainly known for its application in plastics, but it has already reached the metallic materials and ceramic materials. The IREC researchers, focused on this research, coordinate different projects where this technology is applied to manufacture devices such as fuel cells, sensors or catalytic reactors, printing different functional ceramic materials.

The participants can use 3D printers based on different technologies and visit the hybrid printer developed during the project. Also, the researches lines will be explained and the most outstanding results.

Fun and interesting experiences coming soon.

Come to join us how 3D printers work when ceramic materials are applied, and see the applied technologies and the results of the research that we do into the IREC.

The workshop is free, but registration should be made at the following link (limited places according to the room's capacity).

We look forward to seeing you at the IREC next November 9th, 2018 at 10h. You can't miss it!

IREC organizes the workshop "Introduction to Nearly Zero Energy Buildings (nZEB)" at the School of Engineering of Barcelona East - EEBE (UPC)

Next October 10th at 12am the "Introduction to Nearly Zero Energy Buildings (nZEB)" will be held at the School of Engineering of Barcelona Este - EEBE. The objective of the session is to introduce to the engineering students what is a nZEB building and which are its characteristics. The design and operation challenges to achieve an efficient buildings stock will be presented, as well as some best practices.

The workshop is organized by the working group formed by IREC, LEITAT, EURECAT, CIMNE and the Catalan Energy Institute that collaborate together for the promotion of nZEB buildings. In addition, it has the support of the Fluid Mechanics Department of the UPC.

For more information, visit the Workshop Programme (registration not required).

IREC participates in the European Researchers' Night

Next September 25th, 26th and 28th the Energy Storage group of IREC will participate in the activities related with the European Researchers' Night.

These activities combine entertainment and education, gathering together the scientific community with the aim of bringing science, research and technology close to the citizens.

In this framework, on Wednesday September 26th, in the Parlamentarium (visitor center of the European Parliament - Brussels), the researchers Nina Carretero and Sebastián Murcia, will show how to obtain solar hydrogen in the event "Science is Wonder-ful!" promoted by the European Researchers' Night and the Marie Sklodowska-Curie action.

Likewise, on Friday, September 28th, coordinated by the scientific disseminator Raül Toran (ISGlobal, ACCC) and Jordi Diaz-Marcos (CCiTUB, ACCC), the Catalonia Researchers' Night will be held in the Cosmocaixa (Barcelona), with a special evening program that will offer nanoscience workshops. The researchers of the Energy Storage group of IREC, Dr. Teresa Andreu i Dr. Nina Carretero, will carry out the workshop "Solar Hydrogen and photocatalytic conversion" where will show the potential of solar light for the energy generation and air and water decontamination. The workshops are aimed at ages 10 to 17 years.

You will find more information in the following link.

We look forward to seeing you in the great night of science. You can't miss it!

IREC collaborates in the new alliance between Repsol and Enagás for the development of a technology to produce renewable hydrogen

The IREC energy storage group expands its collaboration after the recent alliance between Repsol and Enagás, and subscribes its scientific collaboration to continue developing a technology that allows the production of renewable hydrogen. Both companies will be able to incorporate this technology into their respective businesses, thus improving sustainability and efficiency.

With this alliance, Repsol and Enagás will promote the development of hydrogen production using solar energy as the main source, reducing the carbon footprint by more than 90% compared to other conventional processes for obtaining this gas.

In the medium term, the renewable hydrogen obtained by this new process can be used by Repsol both in its refining processes, to produce cleaner fuels reducing the presence of sulphur; as in the chemical business, in conventional processes such as the hydrogenation of rubber.

Meanwhile, for Enagás, this project is part of the strategy of developing non-electric renewable energies, such as hydrogen and biogas / biomethane, which are new energy solutions that can play a fundamental role in the process of energy transition projected by the European Union.
