■ Outline of the Joint Research Project ■

The joint research project of this plan aims to perform a basic and systematic research to supply indispensable energy to the human race's social activity through the best energy conversion process assuming ultimate environmental preservation, in the back ground of energy, the resources problem and the environmental destruction problem in the contemporary society.
In each major in this graduate school engineering research course, many researchers who has been individually enumerating a big research achievement for this field exist.
Therfore, these basic researches are systematized, and, in addition, in cooperation with research laboratories of the industrial, government, and academic outside the university, resource effective use, the storing, and transportation, making to high effecticve of various energy conversion systems, physical and chemical analysis of the energy conversion process for making the zero emission, and optimization life cycle assessment over the entire system use from origin of resource are performed.
Thus, it is thought that it is extremely significant for the next generation technology development to accomplish synthesis and interdiscipinary science and technology field for energy and environmental preservation that supports an advanced civilized society in the future in this jouint research project.
The energy conversion research center that makes the graduate school engineering research cource a mother body is set up to execute the zbove-mentioned research project as the base of a joint research with outside the university.
