graz university of technology

The group “Sustainable, clean and bioenergy systems”, in the Institute of Thermal Engineering at the Graz University of Technology (Austria), conducts experimental and numerical research on thermo-chemical biomass conversion and its integration into renewable bioenergy and biorefinery concepts. Investigations are focused on the development of novel bioenergy systems and the main thermo-chemical conversion processes: combustion, gasification and pyrolysis; addressing producer gas conditioning and utilization as well as the reduction in emissions of air pollutants, which damage our health and the environment. The group is a key scientific partner of the Austrian biomass competence centre BIOENERGY 2020+ and has a close collaboration with national and international research groups and industrial partners in the bioenergy sector.
