Special Issue in Advanced Energy Materials about Recent Advances Towards Sustainable Materials and Processes for Energy Conversion and Storage

Together with Prof. De la Peña O’Shea (IMDEA Energy) we have settled a special issue focused on Sustainable Materials and Processes for Energy Conversion and Storage.

This special issue highlights: i) the design/use of multifunctional hybrid systems as operational compounds/components in solar fuels, air purification, thermoelectric, water splitting, CO2 reduction, NH3 production, photovoltaic, storage, etc. ii) the development of novel heterojunctions for the smart management of photons and carriers, and iii) the distinctive ecological features of bio-compounds for energy technologies.

These contributions honor our efforts towards material and design models of sustainability without losing device performance for energy applications.

Presentation of Prof. Costa at the short lecture evening: „KoNaRo: Straubing researches for sustainability. For 20 years“

Presentation of Prof. Costa at the short lecture evening: „KoNaRo: Straubing researches for sustainability. For 20 years“

The topics at the short lecture evening on Thursday, November 11 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. are as diverse as the focal points of the work at KoNaRo – Competence Center for Renewable Resources. Under the title „KoNaRo: Straubing researches for sustainability. For 20 years“, six speakers will present their forward-looking topics.

Bio-based LEDs are the topic of Prof. Dr. Rubén D. Costa from the TUM Campus Straubing. LEDs are considered the future of artificial lighting and are particularly popular because of their low power consumption. But are they really a sustainable technology that our grandchildren will still be using? After all, they also come with some disadvantages, such as problematic ingredients. A more sustainable alternative could be protein-based LEDs, which Prof. Costa will present in the lecture.
