“If Germany wants to become the market leader for green hydrogen, we also need the best infrastructure and the most efficient transport solutions. Therefore, we as the Federal Government will promote a cluster for LOHC transport technology within our national hydrogen strategy.”
Dr. Stefan Kaufmann (r.), The Federal Commissioner for Green Hydrogen, visiting Hydrogenious LOHC Technologies 2020
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.
Over the years, Hydrogenious LOHC Technologies has succeeded in attracting
AP Ventures, Royal Vopak, Winkelmann Group, Mitsubishi Corporation, Covestro, JERA Americas, Temasek, Hyundai Motor Company, Chevron Technology Ventures and Pavilion Capital
as high-profile strategic investors.
We have brought LOHC systems to Europe and the US and are driving our internationalisation in the Middle East and APAC region. 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.
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.
