CEO (m/f/d)

At LIQUIDLOOP, our vision is to accelerate research & innovation in green energy and chemistry technologies.

Our mission is to create the next-generation analysis hardware for chemical technology processes, starting with electrochemical conversion of CO2 to green hydrocarbons and for the purpose of CO2 capture. We aim to create hardware technology that provides the necessary tools to revolutionize power-to-X and carbon capture technologies through quick analysis and testing.

We are currently focusing on developing a laboratory research instrument for electrochemistry, a field that will enable the energy transition and shift from use of fossil fuels to green, sustainable fuels and chemicals coming from renewable energy sources.

The LIQUIDLOOP team develops an all-encompassing hardware-software mass spectrometry analysis system, offering a real-time and precise chemical detection and identification of volatile liquid and gas products from a liquid, made possible by our patented “Product-to-Gas interface” technology.
