EMTEC Prize 2002

Fraunhofer IGB News / July 20, 2002

Miriam Kilgus was awarded the EMTEC Magnetics Prize, worth 500 euros, for her thesis on “metallic membranes for hydrogen separation“ at Fraunhofer IGB. As part of her diploma thesis, Miriam Kilgus investigated the production of impervious palladium/ copper coats on porous hollow fiber carriers a-Al2O3. These thin coats display good stability and separation capacity. The economical arrangement of thin membrane coats on ceramic hollow fibers covers a wide range of applications in the production of pure hydrogen for both stationary and mobile fuel cell applications, as well as for applications in the chemicals industry.
