12th International Conference „Fuel Science – From Production to Propulsion“

Join us for an insightful keynote talk by Dr. Toine Cents, titled “Fischer-Tropsch Catalyzed Power to Liquids – Producing the Fuels of the Future,” on Tuesday, June 11, at the 12th International Conference “Fuel Science – From Production to Propulsion” in Aachen.

This conference is organized as part of our Cluster of Excellence, “The Fuel Science Center,” a collaboration between RWTH Aachen University, the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion, and Forschungszentrum Jülich. The research program focuses on converting renewable energy and feedstocks into liquid energy carriers, covering everything from molecular transformation to propulsion technology in a systems approach.

The event targets representatives from both science and industry who are interested in the challenges of developing new fuels from renewable energy and carbon sources. Core topics include the production of biofuels, the conversion of renewable electrical energy and various carbon sources into new synthetic fuels, and the combustion processes of these fuels.

Don’t miss this opportunity to engage with cutting-edge research and network with experts in the field!
