In FEFU, a Russian-Japanese group of scientists embarks on research into new combustion technologies

Professor of the Japanese University of Tohoku Kaoru Maruta is launching a scientific mega-grant of the government of the Russian Federation at the Far Eastern Federal University. According to the press service of the FEFU, in the next three years, under his leadership, FEFU will carry out prospective studies of new combustion technologies.

The main platform for the work of a large Russian-Japanese team of scientists, which also included representatives of the School of Engineering and the School of Natural Sciences, is the FEFU International Combustion and Energy Laboratory. “Our project is dedicated to new combustion technologies with heat and mass recovery. After combustion in any device, we have a very hot exhaust gas that is usually released into the atmosphere. The idea is to return the heat from this gas back to the furnace, thereby increasing the efficiency of the entire process. The new technology saves up to 30 percent of fuel and reduces the size of the burners, ”said Professor Kaoru Maruta.

Maruta Kaoru hopes that the practical result of the grant implementation can be the promotion of a new technology in the energy sector. The idea of ​​the Russian-Japanese team of scientists already today attracts the attention of representatives of heavy industry and the space agency of Japan. The researcher is confident that Russian companies will be able to be interested in new combustion technologies.

Professor Kaoru Maruta won the open competition of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation at the end of 2013. As the scientist himself said, his colleague, FEFU professor Sergei Minaev, who two years ago won the competition to attract world-renowned scientists to the university, invited him to participate in the competition and founded the International Laboratory of Combustion and Energy at the university.
