Enrique García-Quismondo and Julio J. Lado participated in the as part of the Desalination Week hold in Denia on 25 – 27 November. The Desalination Innovation School focused on current low-energy desalination systems in use in different parts of the world, and innovative approaches to creating fresh water with less impact and energy.
ECPU researcher, Julio J. Lado showed in his talk entitled “Water Desalination by Capacitive Deionization (CDI): Challenges and Prospects” the more relevant aspects of the CDI technology along with the recent developments that the ECPU of IMDEA Energy has developed in terms of scaling up this technology*. The Desalination Innovation School, a 2-day course, was aimed at providing a closer look at salt water treatment for master’s students and young professionals studying and working in water production technologies. The Desalination Innovation School took place at the Balearia facility in Denia, Spain, during “Desalination Week” to celebrate the launch of the MIDES project’s first demonstration site at the Aqualia Racons Brackish Water Desalination Plant in Denia.

ESR10: Development of conjugated porous polymers with enhanced electrochemical properties
POLYSTORAGE-ETN aims to develop high quality training opportunities for 16 early-stage-researchers (ESRs) in the area of “Polymers for Next Generation Electrochemical Energy Storage”. The final objective is to train materials scientists who will be the future leaders to face some of the upcoming European energy and environmental challenges. POLYSTORAGE gathers together 12 beneficiaries (incl. 2 industries) and 11 partners (incl. 9 industries) POLYSTORAGE academic partners are internationally renowned for their research and training activities in polymer science (Univ. of Jena, Univ. of the Basque Country, Univ. of Leuven, Univ. of Pau, Aalto Univ.) and energy storage (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Uppsala Univ., Politecnico di Torino, IMDEA Energy, Nat. Inst. of Chem. and Deakin Univ.).
IMDEA Energy will train 2 ESRs on the following two individual research topics “Development of conjugated porous polymers with enhanced electrochemical properties”, and “Development of redox-active colloids/suspensions for semi-solid redox flow batteries”. These two job positions will be open soon!!!
