Materials & Process Technology

The challenges in materials and process technology are numerous. Examples are the quest to develop new (nano) materials which combine unusual properties or can cope with extreme conditions, the replacement of current feedstock by biobased alternatives, finding substitutes for critical raw materials, and exploring alternative mining reserves, e.g. minerals from the deep sea. Furthermore, various additive manufacturing techniques, advanced automation and digitisation (Industry 4.0) are making their way in the manufacturing industry.

Uniresearch consultants hold M.Sc.’s and Ph.D.’s in chemistry, physics, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering and material science, and have profound knowledge of the opportunities and challenges in these fields. They are keen to support you in project set-up and – management in each development stage; from early stage research projects to demonstration projects, and to assist you to acquire (EU) funding.

The REDHy method is uniting academic and industrial entities across a broad spectrum of expertise. Unlike SoA electrolysers, REDHy is entirely free of critical raw materials and doesn’t require fluorinated membranes or ionomers, while maintaining the potential to fulfil a substantial portion of the 2024 KPIs. In accordance with Europe’s circular-economy action plan, a 5-cellstack with an active surface area exceeding 100 cm2 and a nominal power of 1.5 kW will be developed, capable of managing a vast dynamic range of operational capacities with economically viable and stable stack components. These endeavours will guarantee lasting and efficient performance at elevated current densities (1.5 A cm-2 at Ecell 1.8 V/cell) at low temperatures (60 °C) and suitable hydrogen output pressures (15 bar). The project will produce and validate a prototype in a laboratory setting for 1200 hours at a maximum degradation of 0.1%/1000 hours and achieve TRL4 (technology validated in the lab).
