Director's Message

Welcome to the IRC-HES website!

The Center was flagged off on the 23rd of May, 2021, with a set purpose of contributing to creating an economical and environmental impact through basic and applied research. IRC-HES’s collaborative research efforts aim to explore multiple promising fields in applied sicences, focusing mainly on Hydrogen, Carbon Capture & Conversion and Energy Storage.

In the Hydrogen Program, we focus on the production of blue & green hydrogen, hydrogen storage & transportation, as well as hydrogen utilization, especially in boilers, turbines, and ICEs. In the Carbon Capture and Conversion program, we develop research programs that are aimed at mitigating CO2 emission through capture (including DAC) and utilization of this greenhouse gas. While at the IRC-HES’s Energy Storage Program, we study various methods to enable low cost, high energy density, sustainable energy storage devices.

Our website will introduce you to our IRC-HES team members and our vision, mission and research themes.  You will learn about upcoming events and have access to our news and list  of research projects.

Please call us to arrange a visit to the IRC-HES. We are conveniently located on the 3rd floor of the Research Institute (building-15) at KFUPM. In the meantime, you can sign up for the friends of IRC-HES list and call on us to discuss your research ideas for possible collaboration.

On behalf of the IRC-HES team, we look forward to engaging with you.

Director, Interdisciplinary Center for Hydrogen and Energy Storage
