In this research project, new methods for flame monitoring of hydrogen-rich gases in the context of industrial furnaces using thermoacoustic sensors will be developed and optimized by OWI Science for Fuels gGmbH in collaboration with the Chair of Gas and Heat Technology at the Technical University of Bergakademie Freiberg.
Climate-neutral, emission-free and highly efficient - this is what the power generation of the future could look like with a new generation of supercritical gas turbine power plants. The prerequisite is that they are operated with storable, renewable energy sources instead of natural gas and in the supercritical range, and that the CO2 required in the process is recycled.
The production of a low-emission, climate-neutral clean fuel in a direct production process is the overarching goal of the current EU research project E-TANDEM. In this project, an international consortium with the participation of OWI Science for Fuels gGmbH and TEC4FUELS GmbH is working on the efficient and direct production of a new, higher oxygenate diesel-like e-fuel (HOEF) for shipping and heavy-duty transport.
The production and use of a new climate-friendly diesel fuel from biogenic residual and waste materials are technically feasible and have been successfully demonstrated in the EU research project REDIFUEL.
For owners of oil heating systems who want to contribute to climate protection with renewable energies, greenhouse gas-reduced paraffinic heating oils are an option in addition to the integration of solar energy. But can a fresh, purely paraffinic heating oil be refueled on top of a residual quantity of mineral oil-based heating oil that has been stored for years?
Vehicles with electric drives need efficient cooling. In a current FVV e.V. research project, OWI Science for Fuels GmbH and RWTH Aachen University are investigating the purification of dielectric cooling fluids for electric drives based on fuel cell systems.
