The Renewable and Sustainable Energy Technology, ReSet group is focused on the research and development of innovative solutions to decarbonize energy technology and industrial processes. We conduct targeted enabling research that supports the development of new technology and improving the efficiency of existing ones. We work across the technology readiness levels, TRLs, from concepts to commercially ready technologies. Our current research projects include: utilization of hydrogen and ammonia in industry, steam calcination, concentrated solar thermal for industrial processes, hybrid solar-combustion systems, plastic gasification, valorizing low-grade fuels, hydrogen-peroxide as fuel oxidant, and development of advance laser based techniques.

Photographs of flames at a) 0% vol. NH3 which corresponds to (FHN3_0) b) 25% vol. NH3corresponding to (FNH3_25) c) 50% vol. NH3; (FNH3_50) d) 72% vol. NH3; (FNH3_72)
Our research on the use of a bluff-body burner to stabilized ammonia flames has been published in a new paper titled: Characteristics of Ammonia-Hydrogen Nonpremixed Bluff-Body-Stabilized Flames".
The paper found that ammonia cracking within the recirculation zone can help improve burning rate and reduce emission. The paper is authored by Adamu Alfazazi, Ayman Elbaz, Jiajun Li, Suliman Abdelwahid, Hong G. Im, Bassam Dally and will appear shortly in the journal of Combustion and Flame.
