Channel - Combustion in Extreme Conditions
THE CLEAN COMBUSTION RESEARCH CENTER The Clean Combustion Research Center (CCRC) at KAUST draws on multiple engineering and science disciplines, all of which contribute to the improvement of existing combustion technologies while allowing to pursue novel and innovative solutions. A key goal of the Center is to develop simple, cost-effective processes for supplying clean energy by combustion, partial oxidation, or other means relying on chemical energy conversion. The Center research agenda includes the improvement of less conventional processes such as hydrocarbon fuels gasification in order to obtain hydrogen or hydrogen-rich fuels while capturing the carbon for sequestration or use in high value-added materials. The Center is developing an international collaboration network through Global Research Partnership, Academic Excellence Alliance, KAUST Investigators, and KAUST Fellows with various combustion research institutions worldwide. Industry collaboration is being pursued through joint topic development, collective commitment, co-supervision, shared facilities, and onsite training and internship programs. KAUST’s emphasis on collaborative research among centers is crucial to energy efficiency, energy storage, and energy utilization as well as to the development of new alternative fuel sources. The Clean Combustion Research Center (CCRC) works closely with KAUST’s other Research Centers. These include those Research Centers focused on catalysis, membranes, solar energy, desalination, and bioscience and bioengineering with an emphasis on energy utilization and bio-nano-energy science.
