DLR is the national aeronautics and space research centre of the Federal Republic of Germany, which employs approximately 8400 people at 26 locations. Besides space research, DLR works extensively in research and development of energy, transport, security and digitalization.
The Institute of Engineering Thermodynamics at DLR does research in the field of efficient energy storage systems that conserve natural resources, and next generation energy conversion. The department of Electrochemical Energy Technology develops efficient electrochemical storage and conversion devices, namely electrolysers, fuel cells, and advanced batteries. Our activities range from materials development, cell design, stack development, manufacturing and advanced diagnostics up to system optimization. For specific innovative applications we develop demonstrators and prototypes. Scientific and technical challenges for electrochemical energy technology include finding solutions to conflicting goals of efficiency, durability, safety, reliability and cost reduction.
In the 112CO2 project, DLR will lead WP3 (Development of PCC for hydrogen electrochemical pumping) and participate in WP4 (Reactor design and optimization).
