Research fields

R&D on upgrading technologies of low-rank energy resources are performed to establish environmental-friendly energy system. The main topics are:

  • High temperature gasification of low rank carbonaceous resources like biomass and lignite
  • Refrigeration and heating-up from low temperature waste heat by absorption heat pump system
  • Combined decomposition and functional materials production by microwave plasma
  • Upgrading of low rank carbonaceous resources by hydrothermal treatment process
  • Cleaning of gas yielded in gasification by activated cokes
  • Self-energy closed system for upgrading and recycle of sludge
  • Thermal radiation heat transfer mechanism in high temperature multiphase processes
  • Drying-induced shrinkage mechanism of molded materials and accurate control
