Sustainable Catalytic Processes

Arne Roth has been working as head  of the Innovation Field Sustainable Catalytic Processes at Fraunhofer IGB since 2019. A chemist by education, his research focuses on the development of catalytic power-to-X-to-Y process cascades. In this context, he is fascinated by the possibility of  utilizing renewable electric energy, CO2 and water as simple and highly abundant feedstock for the sustainable and scalable synthesis of fuels and chemicals – products that form the basis of our economy and our daily lives.

    • Power-to-X technologies yielding methanol, ammonia and other platform chemicals
    • Synthetic liquid fuels for aviation and other transport sectors
    • Power-to-X-to-Y process cascades: combination of power-to-X with fermentation of C1 substrates to value-added products
    • Electrocatalytic CO2 reduction processes
  • Professional career
