Clean Fuel Research Laboratory

Clean Fuel Research Laboratory aims to contributing to the development of national strategies for low carbon power generation and energy security by producing low carbon/carbon free fuels with low grade fuels. It also develops eco-friendly, high efficiency energy harvesting technologies based on the convergence of high-performance nano-catalytic synthesis and innovative reaction system. Other areas of R&D activities include diversification of process, production, and use of low carbon gas. Specifically, it develops technologies on low grade fuel, gasification of biomass, nano-catalytic materials, low carbon fuels such as CH4, CH3OH, and C2H5OH based on biogas reforming and conversion, production and refinement techniques for carbon neutral gasoline and diesel, and carbon free fuels (H2, NH3).
