"Carbon capture and utilization using electrochemistry"
Marta Costa Figueiredo is an assistant professor in electrochemistry at the TU/e department of Chemical Engineering and Chemistry (research group Inorganic Materials Chemistry). Her research is devoted to electrocatalysis and electro(catalytic)synthesis for sustainable processes and production of high value chemicals like fuels and organic molecules from “waste” substrates as for example, carbon dioxide and biomass. The main aim is to understand, develop and optimize electrochemical reactions under practical relevant conditions in order to give a step further on the usage of electrochemistry at industrial scale.
