Bruno G. Pollet

Bruno G. Pollet is currently (full) Professor of Renewable Energy at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim. He is also Visiting Professor at the University of Ulster (UK) and was Visiting Professor at the University of Yamanashi (Japan) as well as Chief Technology Officer at Power and Water (KP2M Ltd, UK) designing and developing energy storage and water purification systems. He was previously Head of R&D at Coldharbour Marine Ltd (UK) working in the area of water treatment/disinfection and CO2 conversion.   Professor Pollet was a (full) Professor of Energy Materials and Systems at the University of the Western Cape (RSA), R&D Director of the National DST Hydrogen South Africa (HySA) Systems Competence Centre (an industry oriented and led RD&D Centre with a strong emphasis on demonstrator/prototype development and Energy Materials manufacturing), SAIAMC Programme Director and Member of the RSA Department of Trade & Industry Electric Vehicle Industry Steering Committee. Professor Pollet is known both in academia and industry to be a dynamic, energetic, enthusiastic, positive and visionary individual with expertise and experience in the research fields of Hydrogen Energy, PEMFC, Fuel Cell Electrocatalysis, Electrochemical Engineering, Power Ultrasound and Sonochemistry. He has excellent business development, networking, leadership and communication skills. He was formerly a co-founder and an Associate Director of the Birmingham Centre for Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Research, and Operations and Delivery Director of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) Doctoral Training Centre in Hydrogen, Fuel Cells and their Applications led by Professor Kevin Kendall FRS in the UK. He was responsible for the Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC) Hydrogen Fuel Cells and Carbon Abatement Technologies Demonstration Programme (HFCCAT) Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicle project and PEMFC, MEA and Fuel Cell Electrocatalysis activities at the University of Birmingham. He successfully implemented a Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Supply Chain (AWM & EPSRC projects) within the Western Central England with over 60 SMEs involved in the development and manufacturing of hydrogen and fuel cell components. He also developed and implemented the first Masters and PhD with Integrated Studies in Hydrogen, Fuel Cells and their applications programmes in the UK. He has worked for Samuel Banner Ltd (Banner Chemicals Group) and Albion Chemicals Ltd (now Brenntag (UK) Ltd) in Sales and Marketing, Johnson Matthey Fuel Cells Ltd (Johnson Matthey Plc) as Test Facility Scientist, Membrane Electrode Assembly (MEA) Design Scientist and Programme Leader, SmartWater Europe Ltd as Research Manager and Coventry University as Head of Sonoelectrochemistry, Project Development Manager and Lecturer in Environmental & Physical Sciences.  Professor Pollet also worked at the University of Liverpool Electrochemistry Group headed by Professor David J. Schiffrin as an EPSRC and EU Research Fellow in the field of Electroanalytical Chemistry and Fuel Cell Electrocatalysis. He was awarded a Diploma in Chemistry and Material Sciences from the Universite Joseph Fourier (Grenoble, France), a BSc (Hons) in Applied Chemistry from Coventry University and an MSc in Analytical Chemistry from The University of Aberdeen. He also gained his PhD in Physical Chemistry in the field of Electrochemistry and Sonochemistry (Sonoelectrochemistry) under the supervision of Professors J. Phil Lorimer & T.J. Mason at the Sonochemistry Centre, Coventry University.  Professor Pollet has published many scientific publications, articles and book chapters (inc. two books) in the field of Fuel Cells, Electrocatalysis and Electrochemical Engineering (over 200 publications so far). Professor Pollet is member of RSC, IAHE, RSSAf, SAHA, ECS, ISE, SAIChE, SCI and member of editorial board journals (the International Journal of Hydrogen Energy/Electrocatalysis/Renewables-Wind, Water and Solar/Hydrogen and Fuel Cells/Journal of Nano Energy and Power Research/Journal of Technology Innovations in Renewable Energy/Journal of Fuels). He is also fluent in French and Spanish.

My research covers a wide range of areas in Electrochemical Engineering, Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Sono-electrochemistry (Power Ultrasound in Chemistry) from the development of novel materials (hydrogen storage & fuel cell), hydrogen fuel cell to water treatment/disinfection demonstrators & prototypes (Combined Heat & Power, Portable and Vehicles).
