Meet our partner IREC

Sebastián Murcia is the deputy director of Energy Storage, Capture, and Catalysis at IREC.

The IREC group researches, establishes, and evaluates new energy storage processes, mechanisms, and systems and develops high-performance catalysts to improve the energy conversion processes involved. They also investigate new energy harvesting and storage methods for fully autonomous systems.

In this interview, Sebastián explains his work in the SolDAC project in work package 4 related to the Photoelectrical Conversion (PEC) Stack.

We are facing different challenges. The first one is related to the CO2 conversion. How much CO2 convert. The second one is related to the selectivity…We also have additional challenges like the stability of the materials and the integration with other units within the project…
