Energy efficiency and GHG emission reduction

Research aim

Energy and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are interrelated. The research goal of this group is to mitigate climate change through the realization of systems and processes that are energy efficient and/or reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Research is directed towards energy efficiency, energy recovery and energy conversion, as well as greenhouse gas monitoring, greenhouse gas emission reduction and greenhouse gas conversion.
