“Floating Car Data” to improve air quality

IFPEN’s teams have developed a tool that, using data provided by connected vehicles (Floating Car Data or FCD), makes it possible to evaluate the pollution emitted by characteristic driving behaviors and, ultimately, produce a detailed map of vehicle pollutant emissions for different sections of a region’s road network.

Retraction of a liquid ligament in viscous and inertial regimes: research at IFPEN revisits theoretical predictions

Having concluded that the Taylor-Culick velocity was only valid to evaluate the characteristic retraction time for a liquid in an inertial regime, researchers at IFPEN have proposed a velocity that is valid in a viscous regime.

Colloid transport in porous media: deposits and plugging

The transport of colloidal particles in porous media is relevant to a number of fields, including geosciences and environmental engineering. Particle-matrix interactions can lead to deposit formation and accumulation, potentially damaging the medium and altering its permeability. (...) At IFPEN, the problem was originally studied for oil and gas production, but research has now been extended to include the fields of geothermal energy and geological storage of CO2.

Flair Suite™: supporting environmental and industrial gas monitoring

Today, air quality is an issue of major concern when it comes to public health. To protect it, it is necessary to reduce emissions but also monitor global chemical changes taking place in the atmosphere. From the economic and safety points of view, it is also important to monitor industrial gas emissions. It was to tackle these different aspects that IFPEN’s researchers began developing a range of technological solutions, within the context of the Flair Suite™ project.
