The Institute for Research on Combustion (IRC), founded in 1968, is one of the Institutes of the Department of Engineering, ICT and Energy and Transport Technologies (DIITET) of CNR.

The research activities of the IRC include:






The activities, focused on various topics in the field of energy and the environmental impact, such as:

  • combustion and gasification technologies with high efficiency and environmental compatibility
  • valorisation of alternative fuels, such as biomass and fuels derived from waste and residues
  • advanced diagnostic techniques, combustion processes and environmental impact
  • detailed modeling of reactive systems
  • analysis and safety measures to prevent and control the use, handling and storage of combustible materials
  • study of the mechanisms of combustion and formulation and analysis of detailed kinetic schemes of reactions
  • control and abatement of pollutant species from effluents of combustion and gasification
  • catalytic systems in combustion and gasification processes and species in the abatement of pollutants from effluents


are currently organized in four Projects:

  • High-efficiency/low-environmental-impact combustion and gasification processes
  • Formation, diagnostic and characterization of combustion-generated pollutants
  • Energy from Renewable Resources
  • Innovative Processes of Hydrocarbon Conversion
