Measuring the homogeneity of lubricating greases

Researchers at OWI Science for Fuels gGmbH have identified two real-time measurement methods that are suitable for determining the homogeneity of lubricating greases during their production process. They showed for a lithium soap grease and a urea grease that the methods refractometry and FTIR-ATR spectrometry are suitable for assessing the homogeneity of the thickener structure of these greases that is the state of this structure during the homogenization process.

Modular heat storage system

A modular heat storage system including an intelligent thermal process control system for the energetic utilization of industrial waste heat is the result of the successfully completed research project "ModulHeatStore". The heat store enables the intermediate storage of waste heat generated in industrial processes in the manufacturing sector for which there is no immediate use.

Final event of the research projects C3Mobility and REDIFUEL

On November 23 and 24, 2021, the final event of the fuel research projects C3Mobility and REDIFUEL will take place after about 3 years of research work. OWI Science4Fuels was a consortium partner in both research clusters. In C3Mobility and REDIFUEL, the researchers each developed a new sustainable and climate-friendly fuel to technical maturity.
