agriculture and forestry residues, biomass pellets, co-firing, heat energy production
Project: Potential use of the agriculture, uncultivated land and forestry residues for the controlled combustion and heat energy production (AGFYRES)
Project is looking for partners with experience in granulation and pelletization of different biomass wastes, proximate and ultimate analysis of biomass and partners with experience in the development of the pellet burners to be used for the efficient and ecologically clean combustion of different origins biomass pellets and their mixtures
University of Latvia, Institute of Physics (UL IPUL)
UL IPUL is one of the world's leading centers in the field of MHD (magnetohydrodynamics) with unique experimental equipment for liquid metals. The Institute carries out both fundamental and applied research related to the complex interactions of electromagnetic fields and liquid metals. It is these processes that are very important in sectors such as metallurgy, semiconductor crystal cultivation, as well as in medicine and nanotechnology. One of the most significant achievements of the UL Institute of Physics is the world's first MHD Dynamo experiment.
MAIN OPERATIONAL OBJECTIVES AND TASKS OF UL IPUL:
To conduct fundamental and applied research in the following directions of physics:
hydromechanics and magnetic hydrodynamics (MHD), heat and mass transfer, physics of magnetic phenomena, combustion dynamics and technical physics.
To use research results for engineering projects for the Latvian economy, as well as for the implementation of international projects and contracts.
The main factors that ensure a good level of such development and execution of projects according to the requirements set by the national economy:
material base (unique magnetic hydrodynamic and other equipment);
The institute has extensive, comprehensive experience in the implementation of project-oriented projects, including international projects
To participate in the implementation of the UL study programs by implementing the unity of study and scientific work. To provide doctoral studies, to train higher qualification scientists.
