More than a million for research on electrified bubbles

An NWO TA (Technology Area) grant of more than a million euros has been awarded to a team of researchers to investigate the formation of hydrogen bubbles, the transport of chemical species near the bubbles and the electrodes, and the interaction between bubbles. Large scale production of hydrogen is possible by electrochemically splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen. The flow and transport processes near electrodes is poorly understood, in particular around the produced hydrogen bubbles. A better understanding can help to increase the efficiency.
