This research targets the adaptation and development of technologies for the fabrication of precision prototypes with controllable properties tailored for conducting small-scale experimentation on the field of sustainable energy production. As such, it explores knowledge on both mainstream and state-of-the-art microfabrication techniques, such as milling, photolithography, Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) or paste extrusion; in addition to the good practices in Engineering of chemical reactors, particularly those applied to emerging new energy technologies. The objectives of this research are (I) to establish clear equipment design routine and frameworks; (II) to investigate and further develop microfabrication techniques suited to specific classes of materials; (III) to assist the development of ceramic composites for efficient and accurate microfabrication by micromachining, FFF and paste extrusion; and (IV) to support the execution of microfabrication projects. This project will work closely with colleagues from the Research Centre for Gas Innovation (RCGI) in order to provide tailored reactor designs for intensified application of catalysts, electrodes and membranes developed by the group.
