Dr Paul Medwell investigates methods for more efficient, less polluting combustion technologies. His work looks at ways of better understanding the fundamental aspects of flames to create new combustion systems that produce lower emissions. A new Moderate or Intense Low Dilution (MILD) combustion technology offers the possibility of lower carbon dioxide output, an efficiency increase of up to 30% and a ten-fold decrease in nitric oxide emissions. Paul’s work is aimed at understanding the mechanism of this technology and developing innovative and sustainable combustion systems for the future.
