Main project: Green vs. Blue Hydrogen : More molecules or deep electrification of Belgium
Funding: Project ETF
Supervisor(s): Joris Proost

The aim of my research is to observe the implications of electrifying the production of hydrogen in domains such as ammonia production, therefore replacing fossil-based hydrogen (SMR + CO2 capture) by "green hydrogen" (water electrolysis via renewable electricity).
