Fuel Engineering Practical Laboratory

Course Content

  • Pyrolysis experiment on an experimental reactor
  • Gas chromatography
  • Fuel characterization (moisture, calorific value, ash content, volatile components) of fossil and renewable energy sources
  • Production of RME (biodiesel) from rapeseed oil 


The practical lab is offered in both winter and summer semester in the lecture-free period.

All organizational details will be posted to ISIS as the date approaches.
