Congress in honor of Dra. Virginia Collins
Dra. Virginia Hidolina Collins Martínez is Mexican, born in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, B. S. in Chemical Engineer Administrator from the University of Monterrey. During her professional career, she gained experience in both Chemical Engineering and Administration disciplines. Her professional career began in Monterrey, working for Pigmentos y Óxidos S. A. (PIOSA) as head of the Safety and Industrial Hygiene Department and later in the Production and Maintenance Department of the Lead Oxides Plant.
She obtained her Master's degree in Materials Science in 1999 and her PhD in Materials Science in 2006 by Centro de Investigación en Materiales Avanzados (CIMAV). In 2004 she was awarded with the distinction of being a member of the National System of Researchers (SNI) as a Candidate. In 2007 she received the appointment of SNI Level I, in addition to work in a postdoctoral stay in the Department of Chemistry of the Centro de Investigación y de Estudios Avanzados (CINVESTAV) of the IPN. With 12 years of research experience and a remarkable scientific production, she was promoted as a researcher at CIMAV in 2008, obtaining the position of Senior Researcher A.
Currently, she is a Senior Researcher C, Head of the Department of Engineering and Chemistry of Materials at CIMAV and National Researcher Level II in the SNI, author of more than 80 articles in JCR (Journal Citation Report) indexed journals as well as 9 patents, which represent more than 1280 citations, H Factor = 19 (Google Scholar) and has directed 8 PhD, 15 Master of Science theses and 2 Postdoctoral stays. Her research experience is focused on topics such as: Hydrogen Production, Photocatalysis, Nanostructured Materials with photocatalytic properties under sunlight, Catalysis, Multifunctional Surfaces, Biofuels and Soft Chemistry.
Her involvement with the Mexican Hydrogen Society (SMH) began in 2006 during its Annual Meeting held in Zacatecas and she immediately became interested in participating in several activities offered by the Society, starting with the 2007 SMH Meeting, which was held at CIMAV facilities in Chihuahua City. During the period from 2008-2009, she continued her participation in the SMH Steering Committee as Secretary, to later take over the Treasury in the period from 2009-2010, activity that she carried out until the end of the 2017-2018 period.

Title: Key advances on renewable hydrogen production
In this presentation Prof. Dincer will focus on hydrogen age and describe how carbon age is ending with key examples. He will also state the need for sustainable hydrogen product and how the key technologies will be coupled with renewables to make better future. His plenary lecture will introduce key renewable energy based hydrogen production systems, particularly thorough thermochemical cycles and photoelectrochemical processes, and discuss their developments, assessments and performance evaluations for various applications. Furthermore, potential case studies and project results will be presented to highlight the importance of sustainable hydrogen production methods for carbon-free economy. Moreover, some comprehensive life cycle assessment results are presented to discuss the spectrums of various applications and implications
Dr. Agustín Valera Medina
Gas Turbine Research Centre
Title: Ammonia as a hydrogen carrier for energy storage
Dr. Agustín Valera Medina is associate Professor at Cardiff School of Engineering, UK. He has participated as PI/Co-I on 27 industrial projects with multi-nationals including PEMEX, Rolls-Royce, Siemens, Ricardo, Airbus and BP, attracting approx. £8.5M in research income. He has published 162 papers (h-index 22), 43 of these specifically concerning ammonia power. Dr Valera Medina led Cardiff’s contribution to the Innovate-UK ‘Decoupled Green Energy’ Project (2015-2018) led by Siemens and in partnership with STFC and the University of Oxford, which aimed to demonstrate the use of green ammonia as a hydrogen vector produced from wind energy. He is currently PI of various projects (Endeavr Green Propulsion, SAFE-AGT (EP/T009314/1), FLEXnCONFU (884157), Ammonia for Power (IDRIC)) to demonstrate ammonia power in turbines, furnaces and Internal Combustion Engines. He has been part of various scientific boards, chairing sessions in international conferences and moderating large industrial panels on the topic of “Ammonia for Direct Use”. He has supported the preparation of two Royal Society Policy Briefings, an International White Paper for the Ammonia Energy Association on the use of ammonia as energy vector, and he is the principal author of the book “Techno-economic challenges of ammonia as energy vector (ELSEVIER)”.
Dr. Javier Dufour Andía
IMDEA Energy Institute
Title: Nuevos desarrollos en el análisis de sostenibilidad de ciclo de vida de sistemas de hidrógeno (New developments in life cycle sustainability assessment of hydrogen Systems)
Javier Dufour, Research Professor and Head of the Systems Analysis Unit of IMDEA Energy Institute (Spain). Professor at Rey Juan Carlos University, SMART-E 2 Chair (Spain). Currently, he is Deputy Leader of the Cross-Cutting Activities Technical Committee of Hydrogen Europe Research.

Currently, his research interests are focused on life cycle sustainability assessment and eco-design of hydrogen systems.
Dr. Salvador M. Aceves Saborío
Department of Mechanics of the Technological Institute of Celaya
Title: Hacia un sistema de transporte con cero emisiones contaminantes
Dr. Salvador Aceves has 30 years of experience on hydrogen technologies, with special emphasis on liquid hydrogen and cryogenics. In 1996 he discovered through thermodynamic analysis that liquid hydrogen stored within a high-pressure vessel became very insensitive to heat transfer, thereby enabling high density storage with no vent losses in what is now known as cryo-compressed vessels. In the 20 years that followed, he directed a team that demonstrated automotive hydrogen vessels with highest volumetric and gravimetric storage densities, longest vehicle driving range, and longest dormancy in a liquid hydrogen vessel. The team also made the first ever measurements of para-ortho hydrogen conversion in a full-sized automotive vessel, and installed, operated and tested the first research facility for liquid hydrogen pump demonstration and characterization. An author of 8 patents (licensed to aerospace company) and 100+ publications on liquid hydrogen technology, Salvador Aceves is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and a distinguished alumnus of Oregon State University, and is currently a professor at the Celaya Institute of Technology.
