1. Blue Energy

Research question
Will a (small) boat be able to sail on the energy produced by making use of the difference in chemical potential between salt and fresh water?

Challenges faced
The technology, although already applied (partly), is still being improved and tested, which makes it difficult to obtain data from companies involved. There is limited expertise available in this field at TU/e. Environmental impact as well as the limitation in locations which are suitable to use this type of energy resource, provide important boundaries to this project.

2. The formic acid fuelled car
