Bruno G. Pollet (Google Scholar h-index 52, # citations > 11.500, publications > 360 ) is one of the top-world experts in Hydrogen Energy. He is a Professor of Chemistry at the University of Quebec at Trois-Rivières (UQTR). He has recently been awarded the Canada Research Chair Tier 1 in Green Hydrogen Production (7 years, >$2m, Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, NSERC) and an Industrial INNERGEX Research Chair in Green Hydrogen Production (5 years, >$1m, industry and Quebec Ministry of Energy and Innovation, MEI) with a strong focus on the next generation of electrolysers and other low-carbon hydrogen-generating technologies. He is Director of the UQTR Green Hydrogen Lab (GH2Lab), Deputy Director of the UQTR Research Hydrogen Institute (HRI), Adjunct Professor of Renewable Energy at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), member of the “NTNU Team Hydrogen” (the largest hydrogen R&D cluster in Norway), Extraordinary Professor in Hydrogen Energy at the University of the Western Cape (South Africa), Adjunct Professor at the Hydrogen Safety Engineering Research, Ulster University (UK) and President of the Green Hydrogen Division of the International Association for Hydrogen Energy (IAHE). His research covers a wide range of areas from the development of novel materials for low-temperature fuel cells and water electrolysers, hydrogen production from pure, waste, and saline waters, as well as oxygenated solutions and CO2-saturated waters to fuel cell and electrolyser systems, demonstrators, and prototypes. His research also focuses on ultrasound and sonoelectrochemistry to produce fuel cell and electrolyser materials and to improve electrochemical processes. He co-founded and co-directed the Birmingham Centre for Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Research (UK) and was Director of HySA Systems Integration & Technology Validation Competence Centre (South Africa). He has worked for Johnson Matthey Fuel Cells Ltd (UK) and other various industries worldwide as Technical Account Manager, Project Manager, Research Manager, R&D Director, Head of R&D and Chief Technology Officer. He was also one of the founding members of FREYR Battery in Norway (the company was listed in the New York Stock Exchange, and it is planning to develop up to 43 GWh of battery cell production capacity by 2025). He gained his PhD in Physical Chemistry in the field of Electrochemistry and Sonochemistry at Coventry University (UK) and undertook his PostDoc in Electrocatalysis at the Liverpool University Electrochemistry (UK). In 2009, he established the first Master and PhD with Integrated Studies teaching and learning programmes in hydrogen, fuel cells and their applications in the UK. He serves on several associations and industry boards as well as editorial boards of international journals (Elsevier, Royal Society of Chemistry, Springer, Wiley & IOP). He edited over 17 books, wrote 2 books, and published over 25 book chapters in hydrogen and fuel cells, sonochemistry and sonoelectrochemisty. He has also delivered over 200 keynote and invited talks at various international events.
