Institute of Combustion Technology

Head of Institute: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Manfred Aigner

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 CO2
  • 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 95 members of staff. Working groups are mainly based in Stuttgart but the Institute also maintains a sub-office in Cologne.
