Yeshui Zhang visits Tsinghua University


Yeshui - Tsinghua -01

Early career research Yeshui Zhang from the University of Leeds, UK visited Tsinghua University, Beijing, China from March –June 2017.  She worked on the development of novel nickel based catalysts with the aim of producing hydrogen from biomass. A further development was also incorporating calcium oxide into the nickel catalyst to capture carbon dioxide in-situ, thereby further increasing hydrogen yield. She developed a new reactor system using pyrolysis-catalysis and an on-line gas analysis system.
