The NETZ is part of the Center for Nanointegration Duisburg-Essen (CENIDE). Physicists, chemists and engineers research new materials for energy applications and develop scalable processes for their production and processing.

Transporting hydrogen as iron

The transport of green-generated energy in the form of iron. This is the vision of the "Me2H2 iron-steam process" project coordinated by the UDE. Hydrogen generated by means of solar energy, a chemical reaction and transport in metal form lead to a sustainable cycle. Together with partners from Clausthal and Bremen and associated industrial partners, the team aims to develop a concept for implementation on an industrial scale and has received funding from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).


Lab Tour and Exchange

Visit of the rector at NETZ

During her visit of CENIDE last Tuesday at NETZ, Rector Prof. Dr. Barbara Albert, in the presence of Prorector Prof. Dr. Astrid Westendorf, informed herself in detail about the experiences of the cooperation so far and the current state of research at the institutions. The renowned Professor of Inorganic Chemistry has been Rector of the University of Duisburg-Essen since April 2022, succeeding Prof. Ulrich Radtke. After a brief introduction to CENIDE, the scientists had the opportunity to present their practical work and exchange ideas with Prof. Albert during a tour of ICAN and other laboratories.
