High efficiency energy

Energia ad alto rendimento

Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs) are highly efficient devices that convert chemical energy directly to electricity. Despite their superior performance compared to other types of fuel cells, SOFCs are not yet commercially viable because problems of material degradation make their operating lives too short for widespread use.

Biocatalysis for industry

Biocatalisi per l'industria

 
In order to promote the economic exploitation of biomass and agroindustrial by-products, such as sugars, cellulose, starch and oils, new biocatalytic processes involving enzymatic catalysts are under study.
These processes are often not competitive with those of classic chemistry because of the poor efficiency of the biocatalysts currently available. Read more...
