RWTH Aachen University’s Institute for Combustion Engines (VKA) and the Chair of Technical Thermodynamics (LTT) form the Institute for Thermodynamics, which is located within the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of RWTH Aachen University. At the VKA, research focuses on the investigation of flow analysis, fuel preparation and combustion with the purpose of energy saving and engine-related avoidance of emission generation. The institute’s experience in single cylinder engine testing and combustion system development in combination with alternative biofuels brings valuable expertise to the ALIGN-CCUS project.  

The university’s High Pressure Chamber will be used to further understanding of the formation and behaviour of transport fuels.
