Clean Circles

Iron as a reactive metal has enormous potential to boost the energy transition. The project “Clean Circles” teams up scientists from multiple disciplines to explore how the metal and its oxides can be used in a cycle as carbon-free chemical energy carrier to store wind and solar power. In cooperation with researchers from the Technical University of Darmstadt and the Karlsruhe Institute of technology (KIT), and various other partner institutions, the team led by Prof. Dr. Arne Niemann researches primarily the socio-economic perspective on the circle, for instance by evaluating potential partner countries.
