Reasearch / work
Research oriented towards: - Environmental consequences of energy conversion at high temperatures. The environmental aspect of the research is early identification and elimination of environmental impact of energy conversion processes under development, and the decrease in pollution and other impacts which can be reached through the development of more efficient conversion techniques, giving lower environmental load per useful kWh. - Aerosols and alkali salt particles. Alkali salt particles are the most common aerosol particles, and transport of various compounds from the surface of the sea to land involves deposition of such aerosol particles. It is known that photochemical smog together with alkali salt aerosols can release chlorine. - Atmospheric reactions, especially with halogen containing compounds as reactants. Such reactions are important for the ozone depletion and for reactions which release halogens in the atmosphere.
