Reference-factory.H2 – electrolyzer and fuel cell production of the future

Hybrid production system accelerates transfer to industry


Hydrogen is a key element in the energy transition. To ensure that hydrogen can become generally established as an energy source, it must be produced at market prices, in sufficient quantities and in a climate-neutral manner, and used with a high CO2 reduction rate. This requires affordable, ...

Clean production processes in the chemical industry

TU Delft and TNO prepare industry for scale-up phase of clean factory


Oil and gas shortages are not only pushing up the prices of gas and petrol, but also plastics, medicines and cosmetics. To make our society less dependent on fossil fuels and combat climate change, the chemical industry needs to change radically. In recent years, TU Delft and TNO have laid the ...

Why some bubbles move faster

Why do large gas bubbles in viscoelastic liquids rise so much faster than expected?


An open question with great relevance for industrial production processes. Researchers at TU Graz and TU Darmstadt have now found an explanation. It is a puzzle long known among experts and very relevant in many industrial production processes: a jump discontinuity in the rise velocity of gas ...

When Fuel Sloshes Dangerously

Coffee sloshing over the rim of a cup: annoying, but bearable. Sloshing fuel in rockets or tankers: more dangerous


Kerstin Avila from the University of Bremen conducts research on this topic and on turbulence - with success, as two outstanding publications now show. Sloshing coffee is known to many people as an annoying everyday problem that one can and must live with. In engineering, however, such dynamics ...

Artificial intelligence listens to the sound of healthy machines

Detecting defects at an early stage


Sounds provide important information about how well a machine is running. ETH researchers have now developed a new machine learning method that automatically detects whether a machine is "healthy" or requires maintenance. Whether railway wheels or generators in a power plant, whether pumps or ...

Neutrons detect clogs in pipelines

New neutron-based method helps keep underwater pipelines open


Industry and private consumers alike depend on oil and gas pipelines that stretch thousands of kilometers underwater. It is not uncommon for these pipelines to become clogged with deposits. Until now, there have been few means of identifying the formation of plugs in-situ and non-destructively. ...
