 In 2016 Croatia (University of Zagreb/Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture) joined a large family of the countries and institutions gathered under the Chemistry of Smart Energy Carriers and Technologies (SMARTCATS) COST Action.

SMARTCATS COST Action (CM1404) aims to set-up a Europe-wide network of leading academic and research institutions and key industries to promote the use of smart energy carriers on a large scale in order to increase fuel flexibility and carbon efficiency of energy production and to support distributed energy generation strategies.

The approach to accomplish this aim is twofold:

  • Academic/research organizations will devote strong efforts to bring together fundamental/advanced numerical and diagnostic tools to improve the understanding of combustion kinetics and by-products formation of smart energy carriers at micro/meso-scale levels.

  • The exchange between academic and industrial partners will support the optimization of tools developed in the Action exploiting the way that smart energy carriers could be utilised at the macro-scale in advanced combustion technology devices.

This Academia-Industry interaction will lead to the identification of standards and criteria for development of a searchable database and Internet tool devoted to integration of experimental and numerical combustion chemical/physical data which will provide an easy access to such information relevant to smart energy carrier components.


Prof. Daniel Rolph Schneider, also a member of the Adria Section of the Combustion Institute, as the Croatian representative, was appointed a member of the Management Committee of the CMST COST Action CM1404.
