The new podcast series “Sustainability. Time to Change” presented by TUM Institute for LifeLong Learning, dives into the work of our TUM community and shares their vision of how their work can help to improve the world we live in. In the first mini-series which will air over the next couple of weeks, the podcast hosts John Pye and Thomas Münch of TUM Institute for LifeLong Learning talk with their guests about the topic: “Sustainability. Time to Change.”
Bayerischer Rundfunk reported on 22 October in its television program Abendschau about the research at CTV concerning the miniplant for production of the synthetic fuel OME.
Synthetic fuels such as OME can significantly reduce CO2 emissions while making combustion cleaner. At the Straubing Campus for Biotechnology and Sustainability of the Technical University of Munich (TUM), engineers are demonstrating the production of OME as an alternative to diesel fuel in a newly constructed demonstration plant.
The group welcomes Fabian Jirasek as a new post-doctoral fellow!
Leandros Paschalidis started recently as a PhD Student in our research group.
Yosr Boukhris is an Assistant Professor at the National School of Engineers of the University of Tunis El Manar.
Sat 1 reported on 20 April in a longer article about the research on synthetic fuels at the TUM. The research at the CTV was also prominently mentioned.
The Federal Ministry of Education and Research is launching a major joint project NAMOSYN – Sustainable Mobility through Synthetic Fuels. Our laboratory is part of it!
In this project, a mini plant will be set up at the laboratory to produce the clean diesel fuel oxymethylene ether (OME).
