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 3 institutes and some 20 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 Technologies GmbH.
Five years and three funding rounds later, Hydrogenious Technologies has won FAU and Anglo American Platinum (UK) 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 optimistic towards the future that lays ahead of us!
Dr. Daniel Teichmann, CEO / Founder
Daniel brought LOHC to Erlangen and from there to the world. It was his Ph.D. thesis that laid the basis for Hydrogenious Technologies. What occupied him before he became an entrepreneur? He studied Business Engineering, tested the waters with strategy consulting, worked for BMW. Ah and played basketball.
Dr. Caspar Paetz, CTO
Caspar was in Erlangen before Hydrogenious was there so he left again to build large plants with ThyssenKrupp and manage large projects with THOST. After Hydrogenious grew and prospered in Erlangen Caspar came back. Caspar considers himself a geek and so does everybody else. But besides that, he is also a brilliant chemical engineer.
Dr. Cornelius von der Heydt, CCO
Cornelius never planned to go to Erlangen. And when he joined Hydrogenious, it was all engineers. As his Ph.D. in Economics was not sufficient to gain their respect, he learned to explain LOHC in such a matter that nobody notices his consulting background. Now he presents the LOHC technology like nobody else, taking every stage offered to him.
