Electrochemical Engineering of Hollow Fiber electrodes

Aim is to:

  • Develop electrochemical processes for conversion of CO2 to Syn Gas
  • Develop electrochemical processes for conversion of N2 to NH3
  • Develop electrochemical processes for partial oxidation of CH4 to CH3OH
  • Determine the effect of experimental parameters (electrolyte, pressure, temperature, gas feed composition) on process operation and stability
  • Compare the performance of hollow fiber technology to conventional gas diffusion electrode
