The Biorefinery and Sustainability Area investigates the application of the processes and materials developed in the research group for energy storage. It focuses on the storage of energy in the form of hydrogen in solid or high density liquid materials, based on materials developed by supercritical fluid technology and compounds obtained in CO2 conversion processes.
