New (Chemical) Industrial Partnership Program (CH)IPP started

FOM, NWO/CW and BP started a new program on fundamental physical and chemical aspects of enhanced oil recovery under the coordination of Frieder Mugele. Building on an earlier bilateral collaboration between the PCF group and BP, this new consortium now combines academic researchers from Twente, the Radboud University (Nijmegen), the University of Utrecht, the AMOLF FOM institute, and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley, USA). Expanding the consortium in this manner, the team will be able to address complex aspects related to the adsorption of ions and organic molecules to solid-liquid interfaces using complementary techniques such as Atomic Force Microscopy, x-ray surface diffraction, x-ray absorption spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, non-linear optical (sum frequency) spectroscopy as well as numerical simulations. The program has a volume beyond 3mioEUR with a duration of 5 years.
