With the aim of opening collaboration with the fuel and gas industry, COST Action CM0901 'Detailed chemical kinetic models for cleaner combustion' organised an industrial workshop - in collaboration with Shell - to present its focus on cleaner engines and gas turbines.

The workshop presented discussions on the following topics:

  •  Kinetic modelling for future fuels
  •  Kinetics in Industry
  •  Kinetic modelling in process safety
  •  Writing and reduction of detailed combustion models, including elementary steps rate constants determination
  •  The GDF-Suez view of the use of chemical kinetics to solved industrial problems
  •  Experimental investigation of the gas-phase reactions of oxygenated reactants (biofuel) and of soot formation
  •  Temperature and pressure dependence of laminar burning velocities based on modelling and experiments

The following hot topics were also discussed:

  • More accurate and better validated detailed kinetic models in industrial applications
  • Pyrolysis sub-mechanisms
  • Detailed kinetic models of common octane and cetane boosting additives
  • Soot/PAH formation/oxidation
  • Laminar burning velocity at elevated conditions
  • Better understanding of RON/MON for SI engines
  • Auto-Ignition of fuels and biofuels in engines at realistic conditions
  • Heterogenous reactions
  • Process safety
