Fluidized-bed technology has received a growing interest and it use has increased almost exponentially over the past few decades, in commercial applications such as chemical industry in the fluidized catalytic cracking of petroleum feedstock among other applications, also the development of the synthetic fuels industry, fluidized reactor systems are being considered and are employed for coal and more recently biomass gasification and pyrolysis. Other current operations include combustion, drying and coating technology.

Research lines:
