Over 90% of the world’s energy requirements are met by harnessing the power from combustion. The combustion of fuels provides a multitude of basic modern human needs, including power generation, transportation, home heating and cooking, and it is critical in many industrial processes. With such far-reaching applications and use, combustion has become inextricably linked to environment. New challenges are presented to improve performance and further reduce the emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases.
In this group, we study and develop novel combustion technologies to meet our future needs for clean, reliable, and affordable energy. Research topics include:
- oxy-combustion for capture of carbon dioxide,
- integration of energy storage with power plants,
- application of AI to optimize performance,
- combustion of engineered renewable fuels,
- control of gaseous and particulate pollutants,
- linkages to health effects.
