Giornate dell’Elettrochimica Italiana (GEI) 2022

Giornate dell’Elettrochimica Italiana (GEI) 2022, the annual congress of the Division of Electrochemistry of the Italian Chemical Society, returns in presence after two years of forced “absence”.

GEI stands for Days of the Italian Electrochemistry and we wish these days will become factually the Italian Days of Electrochemistry, i.e. an international event where experts from all over the world and with electrochemistry-converging backgrounds meet and exchange their knowledge in presence in Italy. It is not by chance that this “electrochemists-collecting” event of GEI2022 will be located in the centre of Italy: it intends to evidence somehow the centrality of the Electrochemical Science in the present times, connoted by terms and expressions like ecological transition, sustainability, circularity and decarbonisation.

In these terms, which characterize our time, the Electrochemical Science offers an important positive contribution through the research activities in the areas of electric energy production (electrochemical and fuel cells), storage (batteries), photogeneration (solar photoelectrochemical cells) as well as CO2 (electrochemical) reduction, synthesis (electrical current as a feedstock in industrial processes), the electron as reagent in organic chemistry, disposal/recycling processes (electrolysers), protecting treatments (electroplating) and sensing/imaging among others.

For these reasons it has been chosen, for this edition of GEI, the slogan
The actual richness of the Electrochemical Science is then evidenced by the list of topics here considered with the intent of covering, in the various sessions, all most important aspects in which Electrochemistry plays a crucial role.
We look forward to meeting you in Orvieto,
