The Institute of Propulsion Technology at the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) in Cologne now has one of the most modern test rigs for researching low-pollution combustion. The HBK 1 high-pressure combustion chamber test rig was officially inaugurated today by DLR Management Board member Prof. Joachim Szodruch, the Director of the DLR Institute of Propulsion Technology, Prof. Reinhard Mönig, and the Technology Development Director for Rolls-Royce Germany, Dr Helmut Richter.

DLR, with its scientific and applied engineering expertise as well as its facilities and infrastructure, can make a decisive contribution to research into low-pollution combustion.
