The R&D department "Industrial Combustion Technology" of the Gas- und Wärme-Institut Essen e. V. (GWI) is dedicated to developing new solutions for large-scale combustion processes, for example for power generation and in thermoprocessing industries such as the glass, ceramics and metals industries. GWI offers a wide range of services ranging from coordinating and contributing to national and international research projects to consulting and contract research for industrial partners, using experimental approaches as well as numerical simulations.
By combining numerical simulations, experimental investigations at GWI's test rigs and on-site field measurements, research projects are completed in a timely and cost-efficient manner. Current research topics focus on the influence of variations in natural gas quality on thermal processing industries, developing compensation strategies for such gas quality variations in the context of the glass industry and the use of biogas as a co-firing fuel for high-temperature manufacturing processes.
GWI serves as an intermediary between fundamental research at a university level and the industrial application, leading to innovative technological solutions for thermal processing industries. New ideas and methods are tested and evaluated in collaboration with partners from industry and academia to demonstrate their applicability in an industrial context.
