This theme is concerned with a novel type of fuels: metal powders that have a tremendously high energy density and can act as a major CO2-free energy carrier for the long term. Within the group we develop the combustion technology of metal powder, solid handling including separation and regeneration through chemical reduction with renewable hydrogen.
