Project description

With the ever dimishing reserves of petroleum are looking for renewable raw materials for the production of basic chemicals via pyrolysis and for use as alternative fuel in new types of combustion (HCCI). A kinetic modeling of these types of reactions and the implementation of a simulation model with validation by experimental testing is planned.
