Poster from Dr. Zan Lian at the Solar2Chem conference

Dr. Lian attended and presented his poster at the Solar2Chem Conference in Tarragona, Spain. The event, held from September 18th to 22nd, 2023 at ICIQ, brought together experts from academia, industry, and policy to delve into the latest advancements in solar fuels and photo(electro)catalysis.

Dr. Lian’s poster, titled “Understanding the Dynamic Behavior of Oxide-Derived Copper in CO2 Reduction from a Large Scale Simulation Perspective,” provided valuable insights into catalyst dynamics and their implications for CO2 reduction. His research exemplified the innovative approaches driving sustainable energy solutions, aligning perfectly with the conference’s mission.

Throughout the event, attendees engaged in dynamic discussions and workshops covering a range of topics, from photo-electrochemical hydrogen production to EU-wide policies on solar-to-chemical productions. The conference fostered collaboration and knowledge exchange, highlighting the importance of interdisciplinary approaches in advancing the field.

Furthermore, the conference demonstrated a commitment to sustainability by directing remaining funds towards offsetting carbon emissions associated with the event, underscoring the collective dedication to environmental stewardship.

Dr. Lian’s participation and poster presentation contributed to the vibrant exchange of ideas at Solar2Chem, enriching the conference experience for all attendees. We look forward to future opportunities to continue driving progress in solar chemicals and fuels.
