RESEARCH:

The PlasmaPower2Gas (PP2G) project aims at the efficient conversion of renewable electrical energy into (gaseous) chemical fuels via synergy effects in plasma and catalytic technology. A multi-disciplinary approach is pursued to cover the entire process chain from CO2 and H2O to CH4 by advanced plasma source design.
