Combustion Research Facility (CRF)

For more than 40 years The Combustion Research Facility (CRF) has served as a national and international leader in combustion science and technology. The need for a thorough and basic understating of combustion and combustion-related processes lies at the heart of the CRF research, which ranges from studying chemical reactions in a flame to developing an instrument for the remote detection of gas leaks. Users and partners have access to state-of-the-art facilities and an expert staff that brings with them enhanced knowledge and new approaches to combustion and combustion related research.
