Contributions for Science

The project provides a better understanding of phenomena involving the kinetics of chemical reactions with fluid dynamics.
New generations of “cleaner” propulsion systems can thus be developed and the risks associated with major energy systems better identified.

Innovations and major spin-offs

  • Reducing the CO2 footprint of land and air transport through the use of advanced, more efficient and cleaner engine concepts, the integration of bio-fuels in these engine systems, but also by controlling the external aerodynamics of propulsion systems; this will also concern propulsion systems for telecommunication satellites.
  • Upgrading non-food biomass and organic waste for the production of heat, electricity and hydrogen.
  • Developing CO2 capture processes for zero-emission energy systems.
  • Controlling the risk of chemical explosions and making the operation of major energy systems, such as nuclear power plants and gas transmission networks, safer…
