Prof. Lampinen and research team
The self-pressurized combustion process aims to enhance significantly the efficiency of the power plants and combustion engines. There is a trial demonstration plant and simulations. Patent applications in Finland and Europe have been filed.
The aim of the commercialization project and timetable
The team is planning to finance the commercialization project by applying for TUTL (New knowledge and business from research ideas) funding instrument provided by Tekes. If the financing is obtained, the project will take place between 5/2014 – 4/2016.
The ideal person sought acts as commercial support for the technical team. The startup mentor is middle person between Aalto University and potential pilot customers. This gives an opportunity to be a co-founder and a member in the startup team.
TUTL is one of the three funding instruments that Tekes offers to research organizations and universities. During a TUTL project the project group prepares the commercialization of a research idea. The aim of the project is to produce a new start-up company or alternatively a new business area for an existing company.
