Research areas

The FINE laboratory research has two main areas: 1) Combustion and emissions and 2) nanoparticle synthesis.

The combustion and emission research carried out includes studies on fine particle formation, ash behaviour and emissions in biomass combustion, engine emissions, emission reduction technologies and combustion aerosol sampling systems. Health and climate effects of combustion aerosol emissions are studied as part of the UEF top-level research area "Aerosols, Climate Change and Health" and within an extensive  international and national collaboration networks.

Nanotechnology research is focused on nanomaterial synthesis and modification for medical and energy technology purposes, including assessments on exposure and health-effects of engineered nanomaterials.

Both research areas develop novel measurement and analysis techniques, computational modeling tools for fluid and particle systems.
