Scientific Scope

New materials play a key role in the search for novel applications of electrochemical technology, either for the effective remediation of environmental problems or for the more efficient transformation and/or storage of energy. Well-known examples of the remarkable advancements associated to their development include diamond electrodes for the treatment of wastewater, bipolar and composite membranes, especially designed for many environmental and energy applications, and new electrolyte formulations for redox flow batteries, new catalysts for electrolyzers and fuel cells, etc. A detailed knowledge of their properties (and also about the fundamentals of the electrochemical processes in which they participate) can help to optimize existing applications and to discover many other new applications.

This meeting aims to put together researchers both in fundamental research and in technological applications trying to push the state of the art of the novel electrochemical processes to a high new level.
