Mr. Robin Wegge successfully defended his PhD thesis at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Germany, on February 5. The title of his thesis was:
Thermodynamic Properties of the (Argon + Carbon Dioxide) System: Instrument Development with Density and Speed-of-Sound Measurements
The assessment committee consisted of:
- Head: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Viktor Scherer
- 1stReviewer: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Roland Span
- 2ndReviewer: Dr.-Ing. Markus Richter
Mr. Wegge has investigating the thermodynamic properties of CO2-rich mixtures, and has performed density and speed-of-sound measurements in the (argon + carbon dioxide) system. As part of his project Mr. Wegge spent two months at the National Institute of Standards and Technology win Boulder, Colorado, USA.
The project has been a part of BIGCCS Task 2.2 – CO2Mix.
BIGCCS wishes Dr. Wegge good luck in his future endeavors!
