The research in the Combustion Technology Group addresses issues in the conversion of chemical fuels to useful energy:
- Efficiency of combustion processes and development of new combustion methods.
- Combustion properties of new fuels, both sustainable (biogas, hydrogen) and ‘new fossil’ (such as liquefied natural gas, LNG, as a transportation fuel) to assess their suitability for end-use equipment: efficiency, fitness-for purpose and environmental impact, i.e., to determine “the right fuel for the right job”.
- Combustion synthesis of new materials.
- Formation of pollutant species...read more.
