Laboratory profile and history

The Laboratory of Heat Transfer and Environmental Engineering (LHTEE) belongs to the Energy Section of the Mechanical Engineering Department, Aristotle University Thessaloniki, Greece. The Laboratory is responsible for eight pre-graduate courses in the Mechanical Engineering Department. More than ten doctoral candidates are supervised by LHTEE’s staff members.

 LHTEE conducts basic and applied research in four main areas:
·        Energy Systems and Technology
·        Air pollution and Climate Change
·        Waste Management
·        Integrated Environmental Management

LHTEE has a long record of research and consulting activities, both at national and international level. Most of the research funds of the Laboratory originate from competitive programmes of the European Commission. In the last ten years, the turnover of the Laboratory exceeded five million €. Results of our research efforts are published in peer-reviewed journals and in the proceedings of national and international conferences. Since 2002, highlights of our activities are presented every year in our Annual Report “Sustainability Dimensions”.
