IFP Energies Nouvelles

IFP Energies nouvelles is a public‐sector research, innovation and training center active in the fields of energy, transport and the environment. Its mission is to provide public players and industry with efficient, economical, clean and sustainable technologies to take up the three major challenges facing society in the 21st century: climate change and environmental impacts, energy diversification and water resource management. It boasts world‐class expertise. IFP Energies nouvelles sets out 5 complementary, inextricably‐linked strategic priorities that are central to its public‐interest mission. Renewable energies: producing fuels, chemical intermediates and energy from renewable sources. Eco‐friendly production: producing energy while mitigating the environmental footprint. Innovative transport: developing fuel‐efficient, environmentally‐friendly transport. Eco‐efficient processes: producing environmentally‐friendly fuels and chemical intermediates from fossil resources. Sustainable resources: providing environmentally‐friendly technologies and pushing back  the current boundaries of oil and gas reserves As an integral part of IFP Energies nouvelles, its graduate engineering school prepares future generations to take up these challenges.

The available hardware resources to be contributed comprise:

  1. Continuous 10 kWth pilot plant for chemical looping combustion of gaseous fuels.
  2. Fixed‐bed reactor pilot plant for the determination of kinetics.
  3. Attrition testing unit and other characterisation techniques for CLC oxygen carriers.
