Technical electrochemistry

Characteristic of the working group Technical electrochemistry:

Main activities of working group Technical electrochemistry are focused on application of electrochemistry in environment protection. This includes hydrogen based energy sources or waste water treatment and purification. The second part of activities represents computer modelling from electrochemical fundamentals to design and optimization of industrial units.
