The large-scale carbon neutral production of ‘solar' fuels and base chemicals like hydrogen, ammonia, and methanol using only renewable electricity, water, and air will play a pivotal role in the transition towards a sustainable energy system. This can be done in electrochemical cells, similar to electrolysers, fuel cells, and redox flow batteries.

The aim of this PhD project is to establish optimised electrochemical reactor designs for selected processes. This will likely involve a substantial modelling component, including analytical and simplified numerical models as well as computational fluid dynamics and multiphysics models.

Depending on the interest of the candidate a combination with experimental work may be possible. Please get in touch with any questions you may have before applying.
