General introduction

I obtained in October 2009 a Master of Science degree in Chemistry at the “Université Libre de Bruxelles” and I started in February 2010 a pH-D thesis about Fuel Cells, promoted by Prof. Dr.Ir Joeri Denayer, at the Department of the Chemical Engineering at the “Vrije Universiteit Brussel”.


In this Ph-D project, we are devoted to the analysis and modelling of fuel cells for electrochemical cogeneration. This includes determination of kinetics constants, activation energies and selectivity for selected reactions via modelling, calculation of energy balances, modelling of mass and heat transfer effects in the elementary fuel cell, etc. Eventually, a generic method based on a first principle model will be developed to evaluate fuel cells for electrochemical cogeneration.
