Next External Advisory Board Meeting

The next 18th of March will take place the online meeting with our External Advisors. If you are part of hard-to-abate sectors, CO2 emitters, large consumers of long-chain hydrocarbons, sustainable fuels producers including certificators, chemical industry and sustainable fuels producers, etc… and you are interested in cooperating with our project, do not hesitate to become an External Advisor. Please send your request to

4aircraft@hidrogenoaragon.org

You will be kept up to date with the latest news on the project, as well as the latest findings. You will have access to the reports before they are made public, you will be regularly informed of upcoming events (workshops, conferences, fairs, etc.); you will be able to participate in workshops; and you will have access to meetings (once a year) with our research team.

RENMAD Hydrogen 2022

Last February 24th, the pre-doctoral researcher of the Aragon Hydrogen Foundation, Eduardo Bernad, participated in the RENMAD Hydrogen Fair held in Zaragoza (Spain). It brought together the main entrepreneurs of the hydrogen sector in Spain to contribute to the development of the Hydrogen Roadmap. Our researcher presented the 4AirCRAFT project, which seeks an alternative for the de-fossilisation of the aviation sector, whose purpose is the production of aviation fuels from renewable hydrogen and carbon dioxide.

4AirCRAFT at the European Researchers' Night

The European Researchers’ Night took place on the 24th and 25th September 2021 as a public event in the biggest European cities, introducing citizens to the world of scientific research and its impact on everyday life. For that occasion, the University of Torino organized in the week before some online lessons for middle-high school students, to talk about specific ongoing research activities in a simple and didactic way.

The Department of Chemistry took part to this initiative organising several lessons and practical exercises, one of them focused on transforming CO2 from a problem to a resource. During that activity the 4AirCRAFT project was presented, as an example for the conversion of CO2 into useful compounds such as fuels. The students were also guided in carrying out some simple experiments on CO2 formation (inflating coloured balloons) and its transformation (precipitating as a carbonate into a Ca(OH)2 solution). An online quiz correlated the didactic presentation to stimulate the interest of the students on the topic and to help the interaction with them.
