Předmět se zaměřuje na zplyňovací a pyrolýzní procesy vč. možností využití výstupních produktů v energetice a chemickém průmyslu. Součástí je rovněž problematika spalování pevných a plynných alternativních paliv a metody stanovení jejich fyzikálních a chemických vlastností. Doktorand se v rámci studia nebude věnovat celé šíři předmětu, ale jen jedné z jeho částí – s ohledem na téma dizertační práce.
