Summary

 

Overview

Research Interests

  • Reactor design and thermochemical reactions - pyrolysis, gasification, combustion, liquefaction of solid fuels, including biomass, wastes and coal.
  • Trace element and other toxic emissions from the combustion and gasification of biomass, wastes and coal.
  • Catalytic hydrocracking of heavy coal liquids and petroleum resids.
  • Molecular-mass and structural characterisation of heavy coal liquids and petroleum resids. Development of analytical techniques relating to solid fuels and their liquid products.
