Dr.-Ing Marcus Wenzel awarded the Otto Hahn Medal of the Max Planck Society
Dr.-Ing. Marcus Wenzel, alumnus of the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems Magdeburg, has developed and optimized a new chemical process in the course of his doctorate, with which synthesis gas for the production of methanol or fuels can in future be efficiently obtained from non-fossil source materials such as carbon dioxide and solar energy. He has now been awarded the Otto Hahn Medal at the Annual Meeting of the Max Planck Society.
Marcus Wenzel worked as a PhD student at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems Magdeburg in the department of process engineering. The supervisor of Wenzel's doctoral thesis on "Reverse Water-Gas Shift Chemical Looping for Syngas Production from CO2" has been CDS speaker Prof. Dr.-Ing. Kai Sundmacher.
