Dr. Miriam Rueda defended her thesis on Friday 18th November 2016 at the University of Valladolid (international PhD by University of Pavia). Nowadays, the development of renewable energy resources is attracting much more attention in order to reduce economic and environmental problems associated to the use of fossil fuels. However, their production is variable during time […]
Dr. Luis Miguel Sanz defended his thesis on Tuesday 8th November 2016 at the University of Valladolid. Urban air pollution is a serious problem in many large cities in the world. In addition, the increasing share of solar and wind in the energetic mix and its fluctuating nature, demands the development of technologies for storage […]
LightEnergy is a business project on a hydrogen storage system lighter and more compact. It is achived by the deposition of hydrides over aerogels in combination with microwaves, which manages to give greater autonomy flight of drones. The LightEnergy project, promoted by researchers from the High Pressure Processes group of University of Valladolid, Luis Miguel […]
Luis Miguel Sánz (Ph. D. student), Miriam Rueda (Ph. D. student), Ángel Martin (full professor) and Alexander Navarrete (Postdoc researcher) from High Pressure Processes Group (Universidad de Valladolid), have been rewarded with one of five awards of the Model2Market 2016 competition, the biggest event of Ibero-American entrepreneurship. The project, LightEnergy, about the use of hydrides […]
The application of hydrogen as an energy vector requires the development of new hydrogen storage systems. Magnesium borohydride Mg(BH4)2 is a promising hydrogen storage material because of its high hydrogen storage capacity (14,8wt% H2, 0.112 Kg/L). However, it is still limited by slow hydrogen release kinetics and by the harsh conditions required for reversible hydrogen […]
The contest aims to create a catalogue of university business promoters to help in the creation of new technology-based companies in the university environment and includes a training program to promote the emergence of new business ideas from projects of university technologies previously identified and with a good degree of maturity.
Nowadays, economy and society depend on the use of fossil fuels. This dependence generates severe environmental, economic and political problems. For this reason, the development of alternative energy sources which are able to help to mitigate these problems is a priority research and development area. In recent years, this interest has boosted important advances in […]
