The research in the subject is divided into the areas of thermochemical energy conversion, energy efficiency/ process integration/ systems analysis and CO2 separation/-capture & storage (CCS). In the area of thermochemical energy conversion, the research is targeted at production of fuels, electricity and heat through combustion and gasification of fuels. In the area of energy efficiency/ process integration/ systems analysis, we study how the process integration of different subcomponents/sub-processes and energy systems aspects can decrease both the energy use and the environmental impact above all in the process industry. The long term goal of our research within the CCS-area is to understand, simulate and evaluate various CO2 separation and storage processes.
The research is conducted to a varying extent in a number of projects. Our research is conducted in collaboration with companies and other interested parties and, perhaps first and foremost, together with colleagues from industry, various universities and research institutes.
