Team FAST envisions a worldin which sustainable energy is the standard, without having a negative impacton our society, economy and habits. A world where renewables can be used on alarge scale without the problems of storing the energy, where all forms oftransport can be sustainable. With the idealism and the ambition of youngtalented students, we believe that we can help shape this future. Next tocreating innovative technology, Team FAST wants to generate public awarenessabout our technology and support the transition to a new energy system, where inour technology can be applied on a large scale. To realize this awareness, TeamFAST builds a system that shows one of the many possibilities for our system.
Climate change iscurrently one of the biggest issues of our society. The exhaust of greenhousegasses, such as CO2and NOx's, areone of the main contributors to climate changetheenhanced greenhouse effect . Our innovation is asmart solution which helps to reduce these exhausts and thus helps battleclimate change.
Our goal is to prove that hydrozine is a suitable candidate for replacing fossil fuels. We do this by creating a system that generates electricity with hydrozine on any location. Convincing the world there is an sustainable alternative. With this project we want to inspire and challenge other teams to innovate towards a world where fossil fuels have no place. We believe in a future where different sustainable energy carriers will be used for various types of transport. A world where hydrozine is being used for inter-city commute and freight transport.
Team FAST is anambitious, multidisciplinary students team fromthe Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). We develop a sustainabletechnology with hardworking part and full-timers, whomall working voluntarily. A new catalystdeveloped at the TU/e in 2014 sparked the interest in formic acid as an energycarrier. This catalyst converts formic acid to hydrogen faster than everbefore. A group of students used this innovation to successfully build a smallmodel car which driveson formic acid. This success led them to believe it was possible to use formicacid on a larger scale. When formic acid is sustainably produced,it is called Hydrozine. Our dream is thatHydrozine, sustainably producedformic acid, will be a conventional energycarrier.
