The research conducted in the HTRG utilises the University’s world-class capabilities in engineering in order to help solve some of the world's greatest challenges.

Our team comes from very strong backgrounds in fluid mechanics, combustion and laser diagnostics and are dedicated to producing meaningful results. Our current research includes investigations into emissions reductions in cookstoves, and development of solar radiation based water treatment systems. We are also investigating designs for wind power generation and biodigesting toilets.
