TU WIEN at the EXPERTS' CORNER of the AUSTRIAN PAVILION (Hall E, Space 1)

Roadmap to make Paris goals a reality:
-50% reduction of fossil CO2-emissionen every 10 years,
+100% increase of CO2-free energy supply every 5 years,
active removal of carbon dioxide from atmosphere.
(Rockström J. in: Science, Nr. 6331, 2017)

New technology and innovation contributing to decarbonisation and sustainability

  • Paris-Goals demand: -50% reduction of fossil CO2-emissionen every 10 years,
    +100% increase of CO2-free energy supply every 5 years
  • efficient utilisation of waste biomass is needed – and possible
  • conversion of various input material into energy form needed

  • utilises CO2 from biogas and H2 (from electrolysis with excess electricity) for production of “green methane”
  • doubling of biomethane production possible per biogas plant
  • dual use of membrane separation system for biogas and gas from the methanation
  • moderate investment and operating costs Compliance with strict EU standards for the production of bio-methane

  • energy efficient and safe transportation of H2
  • using well established natural gas grids
  • simple, safe, economical, and flexible H2 supply to decentralized hydrogen fuel stations and industries of the future
  • up to 99,97% H2

  • new separation technique – cost and energy efficient
  • supplies pure CO2 for industrial and agricultural use
  • based on solid particles in multi-stage fluidized bed columns
  • compact design and high efficiency at moderate costs
  • demonstration at pilot scale: 1 tCO2/ day

  • 1/3 of world energy consumption is needed by industry
  • significant reductions due to innovative modelling, appropriate selection of components, and operational optimisation
  • interdependence of technical systems – infrastructure – markets – technologies has to be considered

For more information contact Prof. Dr. René HOFMANN

  • utilising waste heat from 150°C to 400°C
  • cost-effective materials – also for long-term storage over several months
  • to prevent cold starts of combustion engines and avoid their emissions – for cars, lorries, ships, construction machinery, traction engines
  • to utilise waste heat in heat-intensive manufacturing and processing industries and in the energy sector

  • large scale integration of decentralized generation and storage options
  • secure, reliable and sustainable operation in normal as well as in emergency cases
  • drastic reduction of the exchanged data - i.e. thus bypassing today’s ICT challenges
  • smooth and modular implementation in existing power grids
  • strong support to decarbonisation of the power industry

or contact Prof. Dr. Albana ILO

  • reliable process to remove H2S from gases containing methane and hydrogen
  • highly efficient, dynamic, compact – for fluctuating sulphur content
  • simple integration into existing systems, small construction volume
  • use of simple and common chemicals
  • moderate investment and operating costs
