Institute of Power Engineering (IEn): CEREL

The Institute of Power Engineering (IEn) is one of the largest institutes in Poland and Central Europe conducting research into energy technologies. The Institute covers a wide range of ​​energy research including fuel cells, clean coal technologies and renewable energy sources.

IEn's ceramics branch, CEREL, concentrates on research and development into the manufacturing and implementation of modern ceramic materials. A key focus is developing technology for the mass production of solid oxide fuel cells, with related research into dense oxygen membranes to obtain pure oxygen and for oxy-combustion.

IEn is a partner in many European and Polish national projects, and participated in the FP7 project EFECTS, implementing inkjet printing for the deposition of solid oxide fuel cell electrolytes.
