The ComKin group works on both numerical and experimental aspects of combustion science, with special emphasis on renewable and sustainable energy solutions. Recently, much focus has been on efficient and clean use of bio-fuels both for power production and in transport.


Ongoing projects and research networks:

ElectNH3- Novel method for utilizing ammonia in an internal combustion engine- part of an NTNU Discovery pre-project (6 months).

Ammonia as carbon free fuel for internal combustion engine driven agricultural vehicle (ACTIVATE). A Pol-Nor project in a consortium with Silesian University of Technology, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, University of Agriculture in Krakow together with industrial partner LOGE Polska Sp. z o.o. 2020-2023
