The Thermochemical Processes Unit (UPTQ in Spanish) at IMDEA Energía works to develop thermochemical routes that valorize organic solid waste. More specifically, they use the process known as pyrolysis, which is commonly used to make charcoal.
Tomorrow, February 11, is the International Day of Women and Girls in Science and we want to join its revindications with the examples of two women engineers who have paved their own paths in a traditionally male-dominated field.
Research groups like Alejandro Datas’, researcher at the ‘Instituto de Energía Solar’ of the UPM and scientific coordinator of the Amadeus and ThermoBat projects, research new storage systems for renewable energy.
Thanks to a new composite created with textile fibers, through a university-led project, waste materials could be reused for facade cladding, floating flooring and acoustic false ceiling.
Covadonga is an industrial engineer who is always up for a challenge. First and foremost, getting a degree in a traditionally male-dominated field. Her research focuses on studying how metals behave under stress and strain.
