Achieving both energy security and low-carbon society is an extremely important issue for human. In our laboratory, we are working on the development of innovative combustion and energy conversion technologies to realize a low-carbon society. Specifically, with the aim of improving the efficiency and environmental impact of energy systems such as power generation and transportation systems, experiments and numerical simulations on chemical reactors and combustors, which are the core elements of the system, are performed. We are advancing the clarification and modeling of physical phenomena, and development of prediction technology. The results obtained will contribute to industry through industry-academia collaboration.
