We will burn iron powder and create the sustainable energy carrier of the future. Are you open minded enough?

Team Solid is a student team at the TU/e, working on a new concept called “metal fuels ”, in which metals are used as a sustainable energy carrier. When metal powders are burned, heat is released and the metals turn into metal oxides, also known as rust. The heat can be used to warm houses, drive trains and sail ships. The metal oxides formed during the combustion are captured. Later, these can be reduced back to metal powder, by using green energy. This way, a sustainable cycle is made in which energy is stored.
