There is still room to improve combustion processes in large-sized natural gas-fuelled engines, also in the sense of minimizing methane slip. Developing technologies to improve combustion processes and minimizing methane slip in large natural gas-fuelled engines is the major goal...
Pre-heating the air before it enters the combustion chamber allows for a more homogeneous combustion at lower temperatures, which makes NOx emissions practically negligible. Researchers from the Polytechnic School, connected to the Research Centre for Gas Innovation (RCGI), have studied...
The combustion process uses oxygen instead of air and prevents the emission of nitrogen oxides; the CO2 resulting from the combustion may be isolated to be stored underground. A team of engineers associated to the Research Centre for Gas Innovation...
Engineer Christopher York discovered 24 different families of composites and is now investigating how they can be used beyond the aeronautical industry Invited by the Research Centre for Gas Innovation (RCGI), engineer Christopher York shall be giving a talk about...
The Project wishes to qualify the use of energy in the industrial sector, by studying possibilities for the use of natural gas. The first results are due to come out in 2017. The identification of industrial policies and strategies that...
According to the professor of University of São PaulO, within the domestic environment at least 50% of the consumption of electricity could be converted to natural gas. Researchers from the Research Centre for Gas Innovation (RCGI) are currently appraising the...
