From August 26 to August 25, Aline Bornet from University of Bern colleagues has been participating in a scientific retreat in Sonnerupgaard, Denmark organised by CHEAC, the Center for High Entropy Alloy Catalysis.

During the session, the RECYCALYSE project was introduced under the topic of testing supported IrOx and IrRuOx nanocatalysts for the acidic oxygen evolution reaction in a novel gas diffusion electrode setup where Aline presented the motivation of the project, the approach used, the material characterization, and the performance of the catalyst in terms of activity and stability.

CHEAC is a Center of Excellence funded by the Danish National Research Foundation that targets electrochemical reactions for the production of renewable and high-value chemicals where the reaction energy is provided by electricity, thus paving the way for a greener society.
