Researchers from UAB, MATGAS and UAM have discovered that ultrastable glasses of indomethacin are a surprising exception to the ubiquitous presence of quantum tunneling states at cryogenic temperatures in amorphous solids.

At its heart, the project is a partnership between two cities – London and Copenhagen. Both cities have taken political decisions to be early adopters of hydrogen technology and will work together in a pan-European partnership to implement this vision. This joint working will bring together stakeholders from the public and private sector in both countries, all of whom want to learn from the deployment in their own country and the equivalent activity in the partner country.

logo_sofcomThe first newsletter of the SOFCOM - FP7 project is now available.

SOFCOM is an applied research project devoted to demonstrate the technical feasibility, the efficiency and environmental advantages of CCHP plants based on SOFC fed by different typologies of biogenous primary fuels (locally produced), also integrated by a process for the CO2 separation from the anode exhaust gases.

"There are standards that will still need to be put in place for hydrogen vehicles, but part of projects like this helps to address those issues. As we move towards commercialisation of these vehicles in 2015, the required regulations will be addressed and in place," says Diana Raine, project coordinator for the HyTEC (Hydrogen Transport for European Cities) project.
