For a long time in the foreseeable future, turbomachinery engines - e.g. for energy supply - will remain largely dependent on fossil fuels, since renewable energies are still far from covering today’s needs. For the automobile, aviation and energy industries, this dependency means that new turbomachinery concepts are, therefore, essential to significantly reduce emissions and fossil fuel consumption.
The main goal of the Cluster of Innovation »AdaM« is to implement new turbomachinery concepts and component designs in order to considerably increase the efficiency of energy conversion: to measurably reduce CO2 emissions and sustainably preserve natural resources. For the first time, the resource efficiency will be assessed over the entire product life-cycle of the product in question – from the manufacture, via the operation to maintenance, repair and overhaul.
