29th Nov 2017. New “Grupo de Electroquímica” 2018 Awards

The call for the new “Electrochemical Group 2018” Awards is open in the following modalities:

  • ‘Scientific Research’ Award of the Electrochemistry Group (endowed with € 4000). Award for the best research (basic and / or applied) in Electrochemistry developed in the last four years (period from January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2017).
  • ‘Young Researchers’ Award of the Electrochemistry Group (endowed with € 2000). Award to the best researcher, in any field of Electrochemistry, under 35 years old as of December 31, 2017.

The award rules can be downloaded in the following link.

 

14th Nov 2017. The project LIFE2ACID, Towards a sustainable use of metal resources in the galvanic industry is launched

The project has the participation as beneficiaries of two members of the E3TECH network, specifically the Environmental Technologies and Bioprocesses group of the University of Cantabria, and the Electrochemical and Corrosion Engineering group of the Polytechnic University of Valencia. The project is coordinated and led by the technology-based company APRIA Systems, based in Cantabria and specialized in the development of innovative electrochemical technologies for the industrial production sector.

LIFE2ACID aims to implement a new technology for the selective recovery of zinc and ferric chloride contained in spent pickling acids from galvanization processes. By means of the integration of membrane-assisted extraction and electrodeposition (MBSX-EW), the recovery and subsequent reuse of metals contained in depleted acids is possible, with a quality similar to that of materials obtained from primary sources.

The project will contribute to improving the sustainability of the galvanization process, promoting the concept of circular economy thanks to the transformation of waste into resources. Likewise, the project wants to contribute to improve the European environmental policy and legislation, looking for technology to be considered as a better technology available for the industrial sector of ferrous metal processing.

LIFE2ACID (LIFE16 ENV/ES/000242) has a duration of 42 months, a total budget of € 1,233,502, and a contribution from the European LIFE program of € 738,898. On November 13th, the project’s follow-up meeting was held at the University of Cantabria, with the participation of the partners and those responsible for the process of monitoring the progress of the project.

November 13, 2017. Follow-up meeting of the LIFE2ACID project at the University of Cantabria with the participation of APRIA Systems, UC, UPV, AIDIMME and those responsible for the follow-up process

10th July 2017. 25th ISE Topical Meeting

In 2019, 12th – 15th May, the 25th ISE Topical Meeting will take place in the former weapons factory of Toledo (Technical Campus of the University of Castilla la Mancha). The topic of the meeting is New electrochemical processes for the energy and the environment and the ISE divisions involved are divisions 5 and 7.

Description of the Topic: In the search of novel applications of electrochemical technology, knowledge of fundamentals plays a very important role, either for the effective remediation of environmental problems or for the more efficient transformation and/or storage of energy. Knowing more about the fundamentals of the electrochemical processes can help to optimize existing applications and to discover many other new potentialities of use. This meeting aims to put together researchers in both fundamentals and technological applications trying to push the state of the art of the novel electrochemical processes up to a very high level.
