When Daniel started his Ph.D. at Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) in 2009, nobody had an idea of what would come of it. However, within a couple of years, the university had become a global center for LOHC technology with several institutes and a large group of Ph.D. students working on a variety of technological aspects.
In 2013, a new carrier material had been found and major advancements were made in the lab. Daniel, and the Profs. Wasserscheid, Arlt, and Schlücker decided that the research results should not stay in the labs but that it was time to take LOHC to the market. Therefore, on January 23rd, 2013 they founded Hydrogenious LOHC Technologies GmbH.
Several years later, Hydrogenious LOHC Technologies has won
AP-Ventures, Royal Vopak, Mitsubishi Corporation, Covestro, Winkelmann Group and Hyundai Motor Company
as high-class strategic shareholders and investors.
We have brought LOHC systems to Europe and the US and work on the market entry in China. Today, we are more than ever convinced that hydrogen will contribute significantly to the successful establishment of a renewable and emission-free future energy system.
Dr. Daniel Teichmann, CEO / Founder
Daniel Teichmann founded Hydrogenious LOHC Technologies in 2013 and has successfully led the company as CEO since then. He has many years of experience in the hydrogen and automotive industry and gained entrepreneurial experience at BMW, McKinsey and Leoni.
Daniel Teichmann studied engineering and management in Erlangen, where he also obtained his PhD on “Conception and assessment of a sustainable energy system based on Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carriers (LOHC)”. In addition, he is the first author of numerous fundamental publications about the LOHC technology and the author of extensive technology-specific patents.
Dr. Caspar Paetz, CTO
Caspar Paetz has 14 years of experience in process and catalyst development in the renewables and materials systems sector. For more than 8 years his personal focus has been on technology and innovation management.
After studying process engineering in Braunschweig and gaining his PhD in Erlangen, he first moved to Berlin, where he worked for Thyssenkrupp and THOST in plant engineering and project management. In addition, he was engaged as a technical project manager for the non-profit aid organisation “Engineers without Borders” and supported the construction of biogas plants in Africa.
Dr. Marcus Guzmann, CCO
Marcus Guzmann can rely on more than 18 years of management experience in R&D, sales and business development. He has distinct competencies in the oil & gas, chemical, industrial gases and engineering sectors and has a strong talent for building relationships with customers and strategic partners.
After studying chemistry at the Heinrich Heine University in Düsseldorf, Marcus Guzmann got his PhD and worked as a research assistant. Subsequently, he worked for companies such as BASF and Linde, where he was responsible for business development, sales, strategy and technology development.
Stefan Naser, COO
Stefan Naser combines interdisciplinary technical, production and sales expertise with more than 25 years of international professional experience in mechanical and plant engineering – both on the corporation company and in medium-sized enterprises. For more than 15 years, he has held management positions. Most recently, he was managing director at HEKUMA, a company in the field of special mechanical engineering. Previously, he gained extensive management experience at the specialty chemicals company Atotech, where he was responsible for the plant construction division and the production plants in Germany and China.
Born in Nuremberg, he studied mechanical engineering at the Technischen Georg Simon Ohm-Hochschule and graduated with a diploma in engineering.
