Aston University to develop integrated lab-scale centre for low carbon hydrogen

The first integrated center to study low carbon hydrogen production from biomass conversion will be established at Aston University.

With the support of a £300,000 grant from the Wolfson Foundation, the new research center will be established at Aston University. With this funding, the University will be able to purchase equipment for gasification, membrane separation, and fuel cells, among other things. By incorporating these technologies into the new center, Aston University will be at the forefront of hydrogen production and utilization based on biomass conversion, enhancing its reputation as a leader in these fields worldwide.

The new machinery will be set up at the university’s Energy and Bioproducts Research Institute (EBRI), which conducts ground-breaking research into novel approaches for transforming biomass into sources of sustainable energy using thermochemical, biological, and catalytic processes.

This research facility is anticipated to facilitate cross-border cooperation on the generation and use of low carbon hydrogen. The study topics will be directly related to future sustainable energy globally as well as the UK Government’s goal to achieve net zero by 2050.

In order to promote excellence in the domains of research and medicine, health, education, and the arts and humanities, the Wolfson Foundation gives funds for new structures, renovations, and equipment. Researchers at Aston University and the EBRI will gain a great deal from this award, which will present several chances for cross-national and cross-border partnerships with various stakeholders.
