Markus Broström lab

Research group Inorganic products, materials and byproducts from industrial high temperature processes

The research is focused on providing new knowledge that will help the society and industry to facilitate an increased use of novel fuel materials, develop and improve industrial processes, avoid technical operational problems, re-cycle finite minerals, and minimize harmful by-products and air pollution.

Our projects all target different aspects of industrial applications of inorganic chemistry at high temperatures. Focus areas in ongoing projects include:

  • The use of low value byproducts in energy conversion processes

  • Different aspects on production capacity, energy efficiency, product quality, emissions and sustainability in production of cement clinker, quicklime and burned dolomite

  • Supporting industries with application of new knowledge to prevent operational problems, securing product quality, lowering of energy consumption and emissions, supporting circular economy, and with experimental full scale experiments, process development and innovation

The research is performed within the Centre for Sustainable Cement and Quicklime Production at Umeå University, and within the Thermochemical Energy Conversion Laboratory (TEC-Lab). In these environments more than 30 researchers join forces and contribute to the research projects with different and complementary competences.
