Fredrik Normann

Docent at Chalmers, Space, Earth and Environment, Energy Technology

Fredrik Normann works with emissions generated during combustion processes. His research focus on technologies for reducing the emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) through carbon capture and sequestration as well as of emissions like nitrogen oxides (NOx) and sulphur oxides (SOx). The work includes modelling of detailed combustion chemistry and absorption processes as well as process simulations. Fredrik is responsible of the basic course in thermodynamics at the master program in mechanical engineering at Chalmers and supervises several master thesis projects each year.
