Dr Jon Elvins: Research Theme Lead – Thermal Heat Storage

Dr Jon Elvins Profile Picture

Having spent twelve years managing research and product development projects within the steel industry, Jonathon is currently heading up the research team developing thermochemical storage materials and associated systems within SPECIFIC.

The research is focused upon the upscaling of thermochemical materials from small laboratory reactors through to systems capable of providing heat within large industrial units, with particular emphasis upon the material interaction and response with process parameters.

Jon is a member of the International Energy Agency Task 58 group contributing to the assessment of Thermochemical Storage materials. This role involves reporting back to BEIS on developments within the thermochemical storage field.   

Areas of Interest:

  • Thermochemical Storage
  • Material characterisation
  • Coatings
  • Corrosion
  • Galvanising
