The institute focuses on research and development of technical combustion processes with the objectives
- Efficient and environmentally compliant use of conventional and alternative fuels
- Increased reliability of unsteady combustion processes with respect to ignition, extinction, and thermo-acoustic oscillations
- Reduction of pollutants like soot, nitric oxides, unburned hydrocarbons and CO2 emissions
- Development and optimization of burner systems and combustion chamber systems.
