'Inspired by Nature' - A two page feature on the FreeHydroCells project was published in the July 2023 edition of Nanovate! magazine. The piece illustrates how the core concept of FreeHydroCells draws on naturally occurring photosynthesis processes found in the natural world.
We sat down with Alex Buttimer to learn more about her background, nanoscience research interests, and the valuable contribution she has made towards the development of FreeHydroCells' gas collection systems during her summer internship at Tyndall National Institute, University College Cork.
New Horizon Europe project FreeHydroCells aims to investigate freestanding energy-to-hydrogen fuel generation by solar energy absorption
8 December, 2022
FreeHydroCells (project ID: 101084261), a multi-partner, European consortium, led by the Tyndall National Institute at University College Cork (UCC), has received nearly €3.75 million in Horizon Europe research funding for just over 3 years of exploratory activity. The project aims to contribute to renewable energy technology development to support a faster transition to a net-zero greenhouse gas emissions in the EU economy by 2050.
