Innovation Liquid Energy

CO2 and water can be converted to synthesis gas by a SOEC unit, which is subsequently valorized to synthetic fuels, wax or precursors for the chemical industry. The presented PhD project aims to boost the development of Power-to-Liquid plants by combining process simulation and experimental investigations.
