Lions Sponsorship 2020

Price Winner Katharina Fürsatz from BEST - Bioenergy and Sustainable Technologies GmbH is a PhD student at the Institute of Chemical, Environmental and Bioscience Engineering (research group future energy technology) and is supervised by Prof. Hermann Hofbauer. Her day-to-day research work is done at BEST. For her thesis she works in the field of dual fluidized bed (DFB) steam gasification. She mainly focuses on the role of fuel ash and bed material on the product gas quality obtained during DFB steam gasification. The ash layers, that form on the bed material during gasification have a considerable positive influence on the catalytic activity leading to higher contents of hydrogen and lower tar contents in the product gas.

In 2020 the Lions Sponsorship was awarded for the sixth time. 15 submissions from 5 faculties of the TU Wien have been examined by a jury out of members of the Lions Club (Mag. Otto Postl, Dr. Herbert Hochegger and DI Michael Walter) and the TU Wien (Prof. Azra Korjenic; Prof. Hermann Hofbauer, Prof. Winter and Dr. Gudrun Weinwurm). The applications have been evaluated by general and scientific criteria (e.g. demonstration of use of the subsidies, description of the scientific methodology, innovation degree of the work, as well as their potential).
