highpreactor BR-300 in use at NEMEN UPC


The group of Nanoengineering of Materials Applied to Energy (NEMEN) of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC)
focuses in the preparation, characterization and evaluation of catalysts to operate in a heterogeneous phase in reactions
of industrial interest in the field of energy. The industrial application is oriented to the custom-made preparation of catalytic
devices and to the engineering of the reaction. The group works with catalytic and photocatalytic production of hydrogen
and synthetic fuels, in the elimination of atmospheric pollutants (CO, VOC and soot) and in the recovery of CO2.

The Berghof high-pressure reactor highpreactor BR-300 is used.

The highpreactor BR-300 high-pressure reactor is used for alkaline hydrothermal synthesis of TiO2 nanotubes, nanobelts and nanowires.
For these applications, the high-pressure reactor is exposed to temperatures in the range of 130 to 200° C for 20 to 42 hours.

„The high-pressure reactor has worked excellent under all the experiment conditions tested. Both the easy handling and
the high robustness of the reactor are remarkable, as well as the wide range of applications.“

Prof. Dr. Jordi Llorca (NEMEN, Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya)
