International consortium to advance decarbonisation of the aviation sector

Sasol | May 30, 2022

Sasol and Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin will lead a consortium to develop and optimise next-generation catalysts that will play a key role in decarbonising the aviation sector through sustainable aviation fuels. At a ceremony at Sasol's global headquarters in Johannesburg today, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz attended the launch of CARE-O-SENE research project, to be funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and Sasol. Sasol joins forces with five other world-leading organisations in Germany and South Africa to accelerate the development of catalysts that are essential to produce green kerosene on a commercial scale through Fischer-Tropsch technology. "We are delighted to have been selected to lead this important project. Our expertise in FT technology and catalysts makes us the ideal partner to help Germany and the world decarbonise the aviation sector and make it sustainable over the long-term." Fleetwood Grobler, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sasol Limited Prof. Dr. Bernd Rech, Scientific Managing Director of HZB adds, "CARE-O-SENE will enable us to accelerate innovation in a crucial field of green energy. This can only be achieved in a global partnership by deeply integrating fundamental research and technology development on an industry relevant scale." Other CARE-O-SENE project partners include the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), the University of Cape Town, Department of Chemical Engineering and INERATEC GmbH. The consortium expresses its sincere gratitude to the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research for supporting these important efforts. CARE-O-SENE will run for three years and pursues the goal of setting the course for large-scale commercialisation of green kerosene production by 2025 with its research on catalysts. Catalysts are used to speed up chemical reactions, increase the yield and improve the quality of refined products. The new FT catalysts are expected to increase the fuel yield of the process to over 80 percent, thereby optimising use of resources. Unlike conventional kerosene derived from fossil feedstocks, SAF can be made from green hydrogen and sustainable carbon dioxide sources. Developing SAF is key to a sustainable decarbonisation of the hard-to-abate aviation industry, and the main lever for net zero aviation. The underlying technology to developing SAF at scale from green hydrogen and sustainable carbon sources is FT technology, in which Sasol has been a global leader for more than 70 years.

ClassOne Technology and Fraunhofer ENAS to Collaborate on Hybrid Bonding for Advanced Imaging Devices

ClassOne Technology | June 03, 2022

ClassOne Technology, a leading global provider of advanced electroplating and wet processing tools for microelectronics manufacturing, today announced it is partnering with the Fraunhofer Institute for Electro Nano Systems (ENAS) on hybrid bonding techniques for heterogeneous integration of high-density pixel arrays. The work will be conducted at Fraunhofer’s Chemnitz, Germany, facility, which is fully equipped with advanced process systems, including electroplating, chemical-mechanical planarization (CMP), wafer aligners and bonders, and tools for all wafer cleaning steps. The two partners will collaborate to develop, optimize, and integrate individual unit process steps involved in hybrid bonding of high-density pixel arrays and CMOS devices, enabling creation of thin, compact final devices for advanced imaging or sensing end products. Fraunhofer ENAS will lend its expertise in pixel array development, hybrid bonding and the entire device integration scheme. ClassOne Technology will optimize its industry-leading plating technology with CMP to mitigate associated process challenges, resulting in a final wafer optimally conditioned for high-yield bonding. The goal of the joint effort is to construct a scalable process that speeds the pixel array die transfer onto the backplane wafer. “Through our R&D work with a range of semiconductor technologies, we have witnessed the emergence of device technology advancements and enabling integration schemes that require world-class electroplating capabilities. ClassOne has built a sterling reputation in this area, particularly for More than Moore applications. Their combination of industry know-how and on-wafer processing capability makes them our ideal partner to create a cohesive hybrid bonding integration scheme for high-density pixel arrays.” Harald Kuhn, head of Fraunhofer ENAS “Fraunhofer ENAS’s vision for technology enablement is closely aligned with ours, making this partnership a great fit for us both,” concurred John Ghekiere, vice president, product and technology for ClassOne Technology, whose solutions have been selected by the world’s leading fabs for development and production of microdisplays. “Fraunhofer requires the advanced electroplating capability that our Solstice platform delivers, and ClassOne seeks to ensure our solutions fit perfectly into the emerging integration schemes that are driving new, enabling device innovations.” About Fraunhofer ENAS The Fraunhofer Institute for Electronic Nano Systems ENAS focuses on applied research for the development of smart integrated systems.
