  • Flyer: Hydrogen Production bei PEM Water Electrolysis

    April 2017 | Language: english

    The electrochemical splitting of water in electrolyzers is a clean and efficient process to generate hydrogen and oxygen. If electricity from renewable energy sources is used, green hydrogen can be generated as a universal fuel that can be stored easily and utilized as required in different applications of the energy economy, transport sector or the chemical industry. Given the strongly fluctuating and steadily increasing supply of electricity from renewable energy sources, hydrogen can promote a reliable energy supply and even enable long-term or seasonal storage in future energy systems.

    Flyer: Characterization of PEM fuel cells, stacks and systems

    März 2017 | Sprache: englisch

    Qualified measurement data serve as the basis for successful product development, and objective test results as the basis for successful marketing.

    Flyer: Spatially resolved characterization of fuel cells and stacks

    März 2017 | Sprache: englisch


    A detailed understanding of the coupled electro-chemical and thermo-dynamic processes in a fuel cell is a prerequisite for a cost effective and reliable design. We offer a scientifically based characterization of cell components, single cells, fuel cell stacks and peripheral systems. The results are optimized designs, operation strategies and validated models on both the cell and stack level.

    Flyer: Testing of fuel cell components

    März 2017 | Sprache: englisch


    Fuel cells are highly complex electrochemical systems. The conversion of chemical into electrical energy involves gas flow and diffusion, phase change processes, charge transport and heat transfer among others. To develop reliable fuel cells and operation strategies, a detailed understanding of these processes and behavior of the singular components is necessary.

    Brochure: Hydrogen Technologies

    April 2016 | Sprache: englisch

    Hydrogen production by water electrolysis is a clean and efficient approach to convert and store renewable electricity in large amounts. In particular Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) water electrolysis offers several advantages by the coupling with renewable energy sources.

    Flyer: Power-to-Liquid: Sustainable Production of Fuels and Chemicals

    February 2016 | Sprache: englisch

    The increasing contribution of renewables to the energy mix presents a challenge for the storage and match of supply and demand of these intermittent energy sources. One mechanism to store this electrical energy on a large scale and overcome the intermittency of solar and wind power generation, is to produce dense liquid energy carriers. The so called “Power-to-Liquid” technology (PtL) is based on the catalytic conversion of H2 (e.g. from H2O electrolysis) and CO2 (e.g. captured from industrial flue gas, biomass conversion processes or air). This also stabilizes the grid frequency.

    Flyer: Katalysator- und Prozessentwicklung für die stoffliche Lignin-Nutzung

    September 2015 | Sprache: deutsch

    Weltweit fallen bei der Papierherstellung pro Jahr etwa 50 Millionen Tonnen Lignin an, von denen derzeit nur 2 % stofflich genutzt werden. Der Rest wird lediglich verbrannt. Ziel des Fraunhofer ISE ist es, das Lignin in Basischemikalien, wie Aromaten, umzuwandeln. Entscheidend dafür sind ein maßgeschneiderter Katalysator, ein perfekt darauf abgestimmtes Reaktordesign und optimale Prozessbedingungen (u. a. Lösungsmittel, Temperatur, Druck und Raumgeschwindigkeit).

    Broschüre: Brennstoffzellensysteme

    März 2014 | Sprache: deutsch

    Brennstoffzellen werden für die emissionsfreie Mobilität, die Kleintraktion, die Hausenergie- sowie die Notstromversorgung favorisiert. Das Fraunhofer-Institut für Solare Energiesysteme ISE in Freiburg berät und begleitet Kunden zu Membran-Brennstoffzellen mit interdisziplinärem Know-how und umfassenden Dienstleistungen von der wissenschaftlichen Charakterisierung oder  Entwicklung bis zur Vermarktung.
