About the Research Group
The research group is active within the field of combustion and carbon capture technology for power and industrial application. The research includes areas such as heat transfer and radiation in furnaces, combustion chemistry and emission formation, technologies for emission control, as well as process simulations for process and heat integration. The overall aim of the research group is to develop technologies for efficient and clean combustion processes.
The group has since the beginning of the 21st century carried out extensive research for development of the so called oxy-fuel combustion process that enables an easy capture of CO2, for later storage, a so called CCS technology. This is seen as one of the main options for CCS from the power and industrial sectors. Today, the group is also involved in research on technologies that capture carbon dioxide directly from a flue gas stream, so called post-combustion CO2 capture. Besides the CCS technologies the group also works on methods for controlling NOx and SOx emissions from combustion processes.
The group has a long tradition within the area of measuring and modeling of radiation and heat transfer.
