v.l. Michael Rubin und Peter Holtappels auf dem Neuland Innovationswettbewerb 2024 des KITIMVT
IMVT achieves fifth place twice with two ideas in KIT's NEULAND Innovation Competition 2024

Two ideas from researchers at the Institute of Micro Process Engineering made it into the top 10 in this year's NEULAND innovation competition: A joint fifth place was secured by the ideas for "Efficient electrical reduction of CO2 - Directly convert CO2 into valuable C3+ products via electricity"(S. Zhong, P. Holtappels, R. Dittmeyer) and the "Development of highly efficient and cost-effective photoreactors for the production of solar hydrogen"(A. Dreher, P. Kant, M. Rubin, R. Dittmeyer). A great motivation and confirmation of our research and development work on the way to a green and CO2-neutral future.
Congratulations also to the three winners on the podium: "VisioPrinTech", "RareCycle" and "HoStaBau".

Prof. Dittmeyer im Interview zum Thema "welches Potenzial steckt in Carbon Capture and Storage für die CO2-Neutralität?"prozesstechnik tv
What is the potential of carbon capture and storage for CO2 neutrality?

Carbon capture technologies are of great importance to the chemical-pharmaceutical industry. This means that carbon dioxide is to be removed from the atmosphere on a large scale in the future. With Prof. Dr. Roland Dittmeyer from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT-IMVT) and Matthias Brey, Sustainability Leader at EY Consulting, we shed light on the current political and technological status of carbon capture in Germany - where CO2 could be stored, how far the chemical industry has already come and which technologies are currently being developed.

The interview took place on 10.06.2024 at ACHEMA.

4. KIT-LUT-VTT-Workshop zum Thema "Herausforderungen bei der Integration von Power2X-Synthese und Elektrolyse“

From May 13th to 15th up to 46 researchers from two Finish institutions, VTT and Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT), as well as participants from CIEMAT (Spain), Differ (Netherlands), DLR Stuttgart (Germany), and from different KIT Institutes met and discussed ongoing research activities in the areas of electrolyser and “Power2X” technologies. At this 4th workshop in series the focus was on the broader grid context of and the energy system perspective. The event was supported by the EERA Joint Program for Energy Storage and brought together experts and young researchers from electrical-, chemical engineering and natural sciences, legal advisors, and entrepreneurs.

EU plans for the capture, storage and use of CO2

The science media center SMC asked experts for their opinion on this topic.
Prof. Roland Dittmeyer from the IMVT also had his say and shared his opinion:

- on the necessary scale of emissions stored or used

-on the financing of CCS and CCU

-on the storage potentials

-on the shares of CCS in power plants and industry, BECCS and DACCS

BR2 Podcast IQ Science and Research

In the BR2 podcast IQ Science and Research, Prof. Roland Dittmeyer talks to journalist Jenny von Sperber about technical processes for removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
The aim is either to store the carbon dioxide underground in order to achieve so-called "net negative" greenhouse gas emissions or to use the carbon dioxide as a carbon source for chemical base materials and fuels for applications that are difficult to electrify, which then at least does not add any "new" fossil carbon dioxide to the atmosphere ("net zero" greenhouse gas emissions).

Status colloquium of the DFG Priority Program 2080

The third status colloquium of the DFG Priority Program 2080 "Catalysts and reactors under dynamic conditions for energy storage and conversion" took place in Berlin on 29 and 30 January 2024. The scientists from the 12 project consortia discussed their results in presentations and posters from the individual projects. The best posters were awarded - Timo Engl from our CAT group won the second prize, tied with our project partners from FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg, for his poster on spatially and temporally resolved operando investigations of methanation catalysts under transient conditions - congratulations!

Flying without the greenhouse gas effect - is it possible? The expert lecture

In a dialog with Jörg Moll from energiewende tv, Prof. Dittmeyer explains the greenhouse gas effect of aviation and discusses which options exist to reduce the associated greenhouse gas emissions. Avoiding flying, electric flying, flying with hydrogen and flying with the sustainable aviation fuel SAF are discussed and the research and development for the production of SAF from carbon dioxide and hydrogen is summarized. Everything is illustrated with appealing tables and graphics. Don't miss this interesting article!

Climate-neutral Memmingen Airport - The background report

In the background report on climate-neutral flying by energiewende tv, our doctoral students Philipp Rentschler and Dorela Dhamo go into more detail on their respective research topics in the field of sustainable aviation fuels, including the BMBF project H2Mare / PtX-Wind, and show the experimental possibilities available at the Institute and in the Energy Lab at KIT.

Climate-neutral flying - The energy transition report

Memmingen Airport wants to become climate-neutral by 2030. This applies to the operation of the airport, not the operation of the aircraft taking off there. However, part of the synthetic kerosene required for climate-neutral flying is actually to be produced on site from biogas and other renewable energies. Together with energiewende tv and Memmingen Airport, we have made a film that explains the challenges of climate-neutral flying and describes the airport's concrete plans to reduce emissions and in which our doctoral students Dorela Dhamo and Philipp Rentschler put the research on synthetic kerosene at the IMVT in context.
