Coolbrook and Cambridge sign 3.5-year agreement

September 30, 2020

Coolbrook Ltd. and the University of Cambridge have signed a 3.5-year agreement, during which time they will collaborate on further developing Coolbrook’s revolutionary Roto Dynamic Reactor (RDR).

Coolbrook Ltd. and the University of Cambridge have signed a three-and-a-half-year agreement, during which time they will collaborate on further developing Coolbrook’s revolutionary Roto Dynamic Reactor (RDR).

The project, titled the “Numerical Modelling of Turbo Reactor,” aims to develop and implement a chemical reaction model and kinetic real gas property to be used in the design and analysis of these types of reactors.

As Coolbrook’s CEO, Harri Johannesdahl notes, universities have played a vital role in helping the company to model and develop the RDR concept.

“We are thrilled to partner with Dr Xu and his team at Cambridge’s Division of Energy, Fluid Mechanics and Turbomachinery to develop and build numerical models that will contribute to the further refinement of our RDR technology,” says Coolbrook CEO Harri Johannesdahl.

Coolbrook Ltd. is a Finnish engineering company on a mission to create a cleaner, more sustainable and profitable way to produce Olefins, the main component in the petrochemical industry and the production of plastics, chemical products, packaging and more. Coolbrook’s Roto Dynamic Reactor (RDR) is a revolutionary technology that combines space science, turbomachinery and chemical engineering to replace the current inefficient and polluting steam cracking methods used to make Olefins with a radically cleaner and more effective alternative. Backed by a growing number of governments, petrochemical producers and environmental regulators, Coolbrook’s RDR technology is set to become the new global standard in Olefins production. http://coolbrook.com/

Cambridge University’s Division of Energy, Fluid Mechanics and Turbomachinery aims to build on research in fluid mechanics and thermodynamics to develop a systems view of energy generation and utilisation to mitigate environmental impact. The division’s research focus includes acoustics, aerodynamics, combustion, energy use and generation, fluid mechanics and turbomachinery. Much of the research carried out in the division is aimed at reducing pollutants and noise, and is characterised by close integration between experimentation and modelling. http://www.eng.cam.ac.uk/node/38
