103 Dr. rer. nat. Thomas Scherer Phone +49 711 970-4091 Dipl.-Ing. Siegfried Egner Phone +49 711 970-3643 ContactOutlook In future we will investigate and evaluate further gas diffusion electrodes for electrosynthesis in order to produce chemicals on site and to offset power peaks caused by fluctuating re- generative electricity supply, by converting fle ibly the electric energy into basic chemicals. To develop the process, scalable and adaptable continuous flow cells are available that enable a wide range of development tests by changing the gas diffu- sion layer. lso, the flat cells with an electrode area of cm2 are suitable for benchmarking various gas diffusion electrodes and their catalysts, as well as for stability tests and feasibility studies in real-life process solutions and wastewater. Applications Besides the treatment of wastewater directly at the point of origin, initially applications will be developed with smaller con- sumption volumes, in areas such as the hygienization of plants and machines in the food industry or surface disinfection in hospitals. The production of chemicals on an industrial scale is a medium-term objective. 1 Generation of hydrogen peroxide with oxygen in saline solution. 2 Electrolytic cell with 130 cm2 anode area in its quick-action clamping device.
