The project coordinator, Dr. Pau Farrás, will share the experience gained in the framework of the SEAFUEL project, as well as the technical and scientific challenges that have had to be addressed during its implementation.
Finding novel solutions to combat climate change is one of the most challenging and urgent issues. Although the production of solar fuels is still at a low level of technological readiness, solutions need to be shown to authorities and the general public now in order to achieve a rapid adaptation to renewable energies. Now that some European countries are forcing fossil fuels out of their economies, hydrogen is seen as a very promising solution to deliver zero-emission transport.
On 15 December 2021, the coordinator of SEAFUEL, Dr. Pau Farràs Costa from the University of NUI-Galway (Ireland), will give a presentation on the SEAFUEL project in the framework of the courses and lectures organised by the Centre for Research in Technologies, Energy and Industrial Processes of the University of Vigo – CINTECX for its research community.
During the same, some of the possible novel solutions to combat Climate Change will be addressed based on the experience gained in the SEAFUEL project, which aims to demonstrate the feasibility of feeding local transport networks using fuels produced from renewable sources and seawater. In addition, the technical challenges that the project partners have had to face during the execution of the project will be explained, as well as the importance of bringing in parallel the technical and scientific advances in this field in order to meet the objectives of hydrogen production in Europe.
The conference, which will take place on 15 December from 10:00 to 12:00, will be held online via the CINTECX Remote Campus.
