Workshop on Ion Exchange Membrane Applications

17th - 18th June 2014 in Bad Zwischenahn (Germany)

tl_files/assets/images/KORANET_Header_2014.jpg

For the second time, experts from industry and academia met in Bad Zwischenahn in Northern Germany to discuss recent trends in ion exchange membranes and their system application.

Alkaline anion exchange membranes were the centre of interest as they open up the opportunity for significant cost reduction of systems like fuel cells due to the avoidance of platinum.

35 participants from nine nations listened to 19 talks and used the two workshop days for discussions and networking.
