Commissioned research

In addition to the HTC research, HTC runs additional projects financed by other sources inside and outside Sweden. A selection of these projects is presented here.


One of the Swedish research financers is KME. KME is dedicated to the funding of Swedish materials research connected to thermal energy processes and is sponsored by the Swedish Energy Agency. Titles (in Swedish) of the KME projects run by HTC in 2008 are listed below. The list indicates the HTC projects to which each KME project is connected. The present KME contract period is 060101-091231.

METSOFC (Development of next generation metal-based SOFC stack technology )
Coordinator: Topsoe Fuel Cell
Other Participants: Sandvik Materials Technology, Sandvik Osprey, Risö/DTU, AVL, HTC, Universität Karlsruhe

HTC is responsible for chromium evaporation measurements and corrosion evaluation of different parts of the fuel cell stack


(Waste Refinery is a Swedish Excellence Centre which was established in 2006. It is coordinated by SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden)
Energy recovery of combustible fraction from fragmentation of metal scrap
Coordinator: Stena Metall
Other Participants:, Metso Power, SP/University college of Borås, HTC, Borås Energi och Miljö

The aim is to increase energy recovery of shredder light fraction (SLF) without risking operating problems in the boiler.

HTC is responsible for the cooled probe corrosion exposures in the plant as well as for the evaluation of the corrosion behavior of the alloys studied.
