Organization profile

Introduction / mission

"Combustion is responsible for 80% of our current energy supply and will remain to be extremely important in future due to its extremely high power-density. However, the fuels will shift more and more from fossils to sustainable fuels like biofuels, solar fuels and metal fuels. To understand the underlying physical and chemical processes and to control them in such a way that the processes are ultra-clean and highly efficient is highly motivating".

Organisational profile

The expertise in this group includes combustion science, technology and innovation, energy, thermo-fluids and heat transport technology. Group de Goey is active and well-known for numerical and experimental research in the field of laminar flames, turbulent flames, engines, gas turbines, flame thermo-acoustics, etc. The two most important achievements are the invention of

1. The Heat Flux Method, one of the most accurate methods known for measuring adiabatic burning velocities and used by at least 12 other groups in the world, which will be extended to metal fuels within the current project.
2. The FGM method, a very efficient and accurate combustion modeling technique, also well recognized in the combustion community worldwide and also used by more than 30 groups/industries over the world.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, UN member states agreed to 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. Our work contributes towards the following SDG(s):

  • SDG 3 - Good Health and Well-being
  • SDG 7 - Affordable and Clean Energy
