Energy Conversion

Development of combustion technologies is central in reducing the emissions of energy production, particularly in the transition towards new biomass-based fuels. To this end, we utilise both empirical and computational thermodynamics.
Detail of a Thermodynamics and Combustion machinery

Our expertise in research and higher education is based on thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and chemistry in energy technology. Our technology applications of the research focus mainly on combustion and spray technology, thermal materials and bioenergy conversion.
