Laboratory of energy conversion processes (ECO-lab)

Laboratory of energy conversion processes (ECO-lab) is being developed at the Division of Energy Sciences, LTU to elucidate fundamental aspects of biomass combustion and gasification for supporting R&D activities at industrial scale. Although thermochemical conversion of biomass is a technology as old as the existence of human being, phenomena that occur during conversion are still not understood well, mainly because of its complicated, multi-physical and multi-scale feature.

Financing

The development of ECO-lab was initiated in 2012/2013 when approximately 5.5 MSEK was invested by several funding bodies. Since then, the laboratory is slowly expanding.

• LTU laboratory fund
• Kempe Foundation
• Swedish Energy Agency (PEBG II project)
• Bio4Energy (National Strategic Research Environment)
• Solander Science Park
• Nordic Energy (Nordsyngas project)
