Welcome to the fifth newsletter of ROMEO.

The project team is happy to start its 3rd year of work to implement an efficient platform for the optimal design of new integrated reactors. We just had a successful 2 days meeting in Waischenfeld, Germany, where partners shared warming moments and fruitful discussions. Technical issues are overcome thanks to the close collaboration between partners [...]. The model developed for ROMEO’s membrane reactor module is now running and will be used to investigate the effects of various parameters. We keep having good dynamics to win ROMEO’s challenges !

ROMEO spreads as far as Asia!

Jürgen Loipersböck (Bioenergy 2020+ Gmbh) took part in the 6th annual international conference on Chemistry, Chemical Engineering and Chemical Process held in Singapore. He presented the new developed part of gas cleaning, which will be used to prepare the gas before ROMEO’s Water-Gas Shift reactor. Several academic and industrial contacts were made, with the goal to intensify the impact of gasification technologies in the Asiatic area. Read more
