Alfredo Ortiz delivered a talk to secondary students in Santa Clara High School, in which he highlighted the importance of chemistry in the society and in the industrial and academic sector of Cantabria, using examples related to the topics that they study at school. Moreover, he talked about his experience coordinating the European project HYLANTIC: ATLANTIC NETWORK FOR RENEWABLE GENERATION AND SUPPLY OF HYDROGEN TO PROMOTE HIGH ENERGY EFFICIENCY (FEDER). The event took place on December 19th, 2019.
It is a pleasure to announce the celebration of the International Summer School in Hydrogen & Fuel Cells Technology, that will be held in Porto, next June 22-26, 2020. The purpose of this event, organized in the frame of HYLANTIC project, is to bring together leading researchers interested in discussing challenges, recent progress, future perspectives and emerging applications in Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Technology.
Rafael Ortiz, researcher of HYLANTIC project, is currently developing a predoctoral research stay at the Institut für Energie- und Klimaforschung, IEK-3: Technoökonomische Systemanalyse“ of the Research Centre “Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH”, in Germany. From November 1st,2019 to January 31st, 2020, he will work in energy systems modelling for the estimation of hydrogen regeneration in the Atlantic area by using renewable energies, under the supervision of Martin Robinius and Heidi Heinrichs.
Víctor Manuel Maestre, MSc in Industrial Engineering, has joined the Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering Department, as staff of the project “HYLANTIC: Atlantic network for renewable generation and supply of hydrogen to promote high energy efficiency (FEDER)” principal investigator: Alfredo Ortiz.
Alfredo Ortiz attended the 2019 AICHE Annual Meeting that was held in Orlando (USA) on November 10-15, 2019, where he presented the work “Contribution of Upcycling Surplus Hydrogen to Design of a Sustainable Supply Chain: The Case Study of Northern Spain”.
Alfredo Ortiz, coordinator of HYLANTIC project, attended the Congreso Iberoamericano de Hidrógeno y Pilas de Combustible IBERCONAPPICE 2019, held in Madrid (Spain) on October 23-25, 2019, where he presented the work “High-purity hydrogen production by PSA technology of purge gases from ammonia plants”, developed in the frame of the project.
