Contributions for the citizen

The project will have a very important impact on the development of processes and propulsion systems that are safer for humans and have a minimal carbon footprint, thus being more environmentally friendly.

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…
