CEBC initiates a partnership with German scientists

Thursday, March 16, 2017

Group photo at KUThe CEBC hosted five scientists from Friedrich-Alexander Universität of Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) in June. The goal of the visit: identify high risk/high reward collaboration opportunities. 

The FAU team was led by Peter Wasserscheid. He and his collaborators at FAU are among the world leaders in ionic liquids, hydrogen storage, and process optimization. Wasserscheid directs major research efforts in Germany’s quest for a renewable energy economy.

Following the visit, preliminary research was initiated with Bala Subramaniam and RV Chaudhari, distinguished professors of chemical engineering at the University Kansas.  Currently, the team is exploring funding options to expand this collaborative international partnership.
