Anatoly I. Papusha is a world-famous scientist, Professor, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Laureate of the State Prize of the USSR.
In the 1980s the most powerful rocket engine in the world was created for the Soviet Buran space program. To test this rocket engine, as a member of the group of scientists A.I. Papusha created the world’s largest combustion chamber – carbon monoxide afterburner (CO).
The created rocket engine in the exhaust gases of the jet stream contains 1,000 kg of carbon monoxide per second. For 180 seconds, it throws out the amount of carbon monoxide that is equal to the emissions of all Moscow vehicles during a day. To entirely burn carbon monoxide, for the first time A.I. Papusha applied a new type of multi-stage transonic combustion (speed ~ 1,000 m/s) with an extremely high additional input of water and oxygen. This made it possible to achieve a thousand-fold reduction in the emission of carbon monoxide from 1,000 down to 1 kg/sec.
For this development A.I.Papusha was awarded with the State Prize of the USSR.
This technology has a wide range of applications. The main one is related to processing oil residues and producing liquid fuel (diesel, kerosene, and gasoline).
The main part of the project development is completed. A.I. Papusha registered a patent for its use. Mass adoption of the technology that can globally help the ecology of the planet requires support of the world community.
