Development of a continuous reactor for the heat storage application

项目介绍

JOB DESCRIPTION

Thermochemical heat storage (TCH) is a promising technology for the efficient utilization of renewable energy all over the year. The heart of a TCH system is the reactor, where the reaction between the Thermochemical material and a gas occurs. This reaction involves a coupled heat and mass transfer which determines the performance of the system. The state-of-the-art reactors working in the fixed bed concepts have limitations in either heat or mass transfer. This project aims to overcome these limitations by developing a new type of reactor.

During this exciting cross-disciplinary project you will acquire unique expertise and outstanding skills through close contact with academic collaborators.
