40mSEK for CCGEx research!
Toward sustainable transport!
The Competence Center for Gas Exchange @KTH (CCGEx) has been awarded a new program period by the Swedish Energy Agency. During the new program period, the research will focus on supporting the transition to sustainable transports including new propulsion technologies such as high efficiency hybrid systems with zero harmful emissions and renewable fuels. CCGEx will also educate specialists in the field of sustainable propulsion systems.
The center has been awarded 40 mSEK for a four year (2018-2021) period in support by the agency. The Centre's industrial partners, namely SCANIA, VOLVO, Volvo Cars, Wärtsilä, and Borg Warner, are committed to support and invest in the future research within CCGEx.
Center director, Prof. Anders Christiansen Erlandsson comments
- This is fantastic news, we are entering an era of development of sustainable transport with extreme demands for change and we are now, thanks to the Center’s continued trust able to address the important research questions that emerge.
The research with CCGEx combines expertise knowledge of fluid dynamics, acoustics, thermodynamics and combustion engine technology. It includes fundamental and applied research efforts combining experimental studies, modeling and simulations. Development of new methodologies and investigation techniques is a strength of the center. CCGEx is a joint effort of the Departments of Machine Design, Mechanics, and Aeronautical and Vehicle Engineering at KTH, the Swedish Energy Agency and the industrial partners. CCGEx at KTH was initiated officially 1st of January 2011 and now enters its third period. The center has a key role in Sweden for educating expert engineers and scientists who are currently creating future technologies to enable sustainable transport.
