Applied Chemistry Unit

R+D+I activity is one of the main bases of ITE. Year after year the Instituto Tecnológico de la Energía increases the number of interventions.

The Applied Chemistry Unit is focused on the following R+D+I lines:

  • Systems and fuels for energy generation
    • Synthesis and characterization of polymer membranes for PEMFC and DMFC cells
    • PEM electrolyzer
    • PEM fuel cell
    • Synthesis and characterization of electrolyzers
  • Energy storage systems
    • Super-capacitor and Lithium batteries
  • Environment
    • Study on insulating alternative gases to those that are greenhouse gases


The services we offer are:

  • Biomass energy valorization. Study and characterization of samples
  • Technical advising on RoHS and WEEE Directives. Restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment. Disassembly, grouping and separation of forbidden materials
  • Preventive and predictive maintenance of dielectric insulating oils. Analysis of oils according to regulation
  • Advising on Environmental Administration systems
  • Advising on REACH European regulation, relating to the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals
  • Services of information and environmental legal advice, bibliographic and technical regulations information, and further requested information
  • Environmental study
  • Advising on Ecodesign regulations. Support in order to establish ecologic design requirements that can be employed on products that use energy
