Energy and Material Utilization of Biomass, Alternative Fuels and (Bio)Wastes

Contact: Assoc. Prof. Michael Pohořelý, Ph.D. (michael.pohorely@vscht.cz)                    ORCiD                         ResearcherID: H-3505-2014

Our research group focuses primarily on thermochemical utilization of waste, solid alternative fuels, biowaste, and biomass, and on the circular economy of products in the energy, heating, and waste management sectors. Our research focuses mainly on current energy topics with the aim of increasing the use of renewable energy and alternative fuels. We collaborate with foreign universities, e.g., in Belgium (Ghent University) or China (Foshan University) and various companies in the private sector within our research. We train young professionals with the possibility of their employment in a wide range of energy fields for the private or academic sector. We welcome new colleagues with interest in power engineering and waste management of the 21st century.

The topics of B.Sc./M.Sc. theses are available in the SIS UCT and PhD theses on the UCT website.

If you are interested in the announced theses or any of the projects or have your own topic in the field of energy and material utilization of biomass, alternative fuels, or waste, do not hesitate to contact us with a possibility to arrange an individual meeting. We would be happy to welcome you to our team.

Thermochemical processes

Contact: Assoc. Prof. Michael Pohořelý, PhD  – Michal Jeremiáš, PhDJosef Farták, PhD  Dr. Jaroslav Moško, PhD Matěj Hušek   Vineet Singh SikarwarKateřina Sukdolová  – Ritik Tomar  Anežka Sedmihradská  Zdeňka Tomášová 

The subgroup of thermochemical processes collaborates with: Department of Gaseous and Solid Fuels and Air Protection (University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague, the Czech Republic), Institute of Chemical Process Fundamentals of CAS, Institute of Plasma Physics of CAS, Institute of Rock Structure and Mechanics of CAS (all the Czech Academy of Sciences, Prague, the Czech Republic), Faculty of Environmental Sciences (Czech University of Life Sciences, Prague, the Czech Republic) Foshan University and Department of Green Chemistry and Technology (Ghent University, Ghent, Belgium).

Key research areas:

  • Advanced processes for pyrolysis and gasification
  • Medium and high temperature gas cleaning for industry scale applications
  • Material and energy utilization of sewage sludge – phosphorus recovery
  • Biochar production, characterization and utilization
  • Chemical recycling of waste plastics

The subgroup’s research focuses on the thermochemical conversions of different materials (biomass, sewage sludge, plastic wastes, etc.). The laboratory research is orientated towards the chemistry of fundamental reactions and the purification of gases to the levels acceptable in advanced applications such as SOFC. Pilot scale research on the development of combined heat and power units with the parallel production of biochar is realised with our industrial partner. Energy and material utilization of sewage sludge is also explored with the goal to provide a sustainable phosphorus product and usable energy. Other research is oriented to the treatment of primary pyrolysis gas from the pyrolysis of plastic waste to the quality acceptable by refinery/petrochemical industry.


Analysis of solid fuels, biofuels, (bio)wastes and samples from power engineering sector

Contact: Josef Farták, Ph.D. Ivo Jiříček, Ph.D. David Bouška

The analytical (sub)group focuses on supporting the research part of our department and offers service activities for industry companies.

In the field of analysis of solid samples, our subgroup is able to provide standardized analytical methods. The subgroup also develops new methods to fast and accurate determination of all necessary components in solid samples.


Energy Conservation and Storage

Contact: Josef Farták, Ph.D. Ivo Jiříček, Ph.D.

In the field of energy conservation, we focus on the reduction of unburned residue in ash from the combustion of biomass-based fuels and waste-for-heating purposes. Unburned residue from ash samples is examined by loss of ignition technique and by thermogravimetric analysis.

In the field of energy storage, the subgroup focuses on organic and inorganic phase change materials (PCM). PCMs are capable to absorb and release a large amount of heat due to the liquid-solid phase change. In addition to the high value of latent heat of fusion, high thermal conductivity, good thermal stability, low corrosivity, low subcooling and rapid crystallization are other important properties of PCMs. In our subgroup, these properties are determined using thermal (differential scanning calorimetry and thermogravimetric analysis DSC-TGA) and electrochemical methods.
