Renewable Energy and Engines Laboratory

Welcome to the Renewable Energy and Engines Laboratory at Georgia Southern! The lab’s director, Dr. Valentin Soloiu, is the Allen E. Paulson Distinguished Chair of Renewable Energy and a Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering.

His research laboratory explores the formulation, combustion, and emission characteristics of alternative fuels (including biofuels). Current areas of research interest in the laboratory include: low temperature combustion (LTC), reactivity controlled compression ignition (RCCI), premixed charge compression ignition (PCCI), combustion and emission characteristics of alternative fuels, biodiesel combustion and emissions, and engine tribology.
