University of Sao Paulo Visit to ERI

On Tuesday 29th April, Professor Paula Crnkovic and PhD student Daniela Mortari from USP Sao Carlos in Brazil visited the research group of Professor Jenny Jones. Professor Crnkovic's group in Brazil are investigating research topics including combustion of solid biomass and oxy-fuel combustion and biomass fuel characterisation techniques - topics also being investigated by various members of Professor Jones' group.

The guests were given a tour of the Energy Research Institute laboratories and the two groups exchanged presentations on their respective research activities. It is hoped that links with the University of Sao Paulo (UPS) may lead to the possibility of student exchange visits in future.
