Julien Blondeau (VUB) is active in experimental combustion, with a focus on solid fuels. His industrial background makes him sensitive to operational issues and pollutant emission control. 
Through a combination of pilot and full-scale testing, he and his team aim at ensuring that theoretical and numerical models are fed with accurate inputs and are validated against relevant data. Operational characterization of biomass and waste, as well as particulate matter and NOx emissions are his current main topics of research.
