Energy engineering

Energy technology concerns supply, storage, transformation, transport and use of energy, often related to resource efficiency, operational availability and environmental impact. It is a multidisciplinary field that includes, e.g. physics, chemistry, biology, electronics, environmental engineering and systems analysis. It is strongly linked to many of our global society’s greatest challenges, particularly as regards development and the transition towards renewable, and sustainable energy systems.

Improved process model can reduce limestone in cement production

Slag as a raw material provides more environmentally friendly cement – but how is the quality effected?

Reduced carbon dioxide emissions from lime kilns

By introducing biofuels instead of fossil fuels in lime kilns carbon dioxide emissions have decreased.

Study visit to lime kiln producer in Italy

Cooperation on the implementation of oxygen and hydrogen enriched combustion in the production of quicklime.
