Special theme this year: Low-temperature fuel-cell and electrolysis technologies

Venue: Meeting room 1, building 101 at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Lyngby
Conference dinner in Jagtslottet at Schæffergården, Jægersborg Allé 166, Gentofte  

Abstract Deadline - Extended: 15th of September

The Event: The Danish Electrochemical Society (DEF) is organising an annual two-day conference on Electrochemical Science and Technology. This year the event is co-organised by various Danish R&D projects revolving around Fuel-Cell and Electrolysis technologies for operation at low temperatures (< 200 ºC) such as polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM)-based cells and alkaline electrolysis cells. The aim of this special arrangement is to facilitate the dissemination of the current status and key findings from the projects. The co-organising projects are: 

4M Centre, NonPrecious, SmartMEA, UPCAT, UPGRADE/Biofuel, BEEST, Wind2H, e-STORE, HEALTH-CODE, KDFuelCell, Power2Hydrogen/HyBalance, and Z-gap/PorouZ

Topics: The special theme this year is low-temperature fuel-cell and electrolysis technologies, including PEM fuel cells, PEM electrolysis, alkaline electrolysis, and other power-to-fuel/chemicals conversion. There will be particular thematic sessions with invited as well as contributing speakers, which will make this part of the conference a particularly valuable forum for everyone interested in fuel cells and electrolysis at any level. However, the conference also highly welcomes contributions from other parts of both fundamental and applied electrochemistry. Thus, presentations from areas such as energy conversion and storage in general (fuel cells, electrolysis, solar cells, batteries), electrocatalysis, corrosion, physical and analytical electrochemistry, (bio-)sensors, ionic liquids, computational and theoretical electrochemistry, and chemically modified electrodes, are also strongly encouraged. The society welcomes both academic and industrial researchers / professionals at all career stages to present their work. Presentations for the conference may be based either on completed research projects or on ongoing research. There will be prizes for the best oral and poster presentations given by students / postdocs.

Invited Speakers: This year's meeting has four invited speakers concentrating on different aspects of low-temperature fuel cells, electrolysis, and related electrocatalysis:

  • Prof. Dr. Werner Lehnert, Jülich: “Experimental validation of a HT-PEFC computational model”
  • Prof. Dr. Dirk Henkensmeier, Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST): “Membranes for HT PEM Fuel Cells”
  • Prof. Dr. Matthias Arenz, University of Bern: “Mass transport in electrocatalytic reactions”
  • Assistant Prof. Maria Escudero Escribano, University of Copenhagen: “Enhanced electrocatalysis of the oxygen evolution and reduction reactions in acidic electrolyte”
