Institute of Combustion Technology
The Institute of Combustion Technology carries out research and project work on the design principles of technical combustion processes. The main goals are
Reducing the emissions of pollutants such as soot, nitrogen, unburned hydrocarbons and CO
Increasing reliability, especially regarding ignition, extinction and thermoacoustic oscillation in transient combustion
Promoting the effective and sustainable use of new, unconventional fuels
Developing and optimizing burner and combustion chamber systems
The Institute of Combustion Technology employs about 90 members of staff. Working groups are mainly based in Stuttgart but the Institute also maintains a sub-office in Cologne.
