THE  SOLFERINI  count with  professionals from different backgrounds and experiences. The base team is highlighted below:

Daniel Solferini

Graduated in Mechanical Engineering from the Faculty of Engineering of Guaratinguetá. He worked as a development engineer at Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional (CSN), where he could have contact with most of the processes and specialists in the areas. Developed training, projects, studies and assistance  combustion techniques for the most different areas of the plant. 

Currently participates in the development of an urban solid waste gasifier for energy generation  and also leads the project for the development of high-performance burners for household and industrial stoves.  

João Andrade 

He holds a degree in Aeronautical Infrastructure Engineering from the Instituto Tecnológico de Aeronáutica (1976), and a master's and doctorate in Aerospace Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology (1980 and 1983, respectively). He has been a Full Professor, since 1999, at the Department of Energy, at the Faculty of Engineering of Guaratinguetá, at the Universidade Estadual Paulista Júlio de Mesquita Filho. He was a Researcher, from 1983 to 1998, at the Associated Laboratory of Combustion and Propulsion, of the National Institute for Space Research. Has experience in Transport Phenomena and Thermal Engineering, working mainly on Combustion: Energy and the Environment. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)

Anton Skyrda

Master in Space Engineering and Technology from the National Institute for Space Research (INPE) in the field of Combustion. PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Instituto Superior Técnico, having studied one of the most advanced technologies in the combustion process: Flameless Combustion. He has worked in combustion systems optimization projects that aim to obtain greater efficiency with low pollutant emissions and fuel economy as well as in the development of optical systems projects for diagnostics in combustion such as Schlieren, Cassegrain Optics and Spectroscopy, Tomography studies Computerized Transmission and Emission, flame diagnostics using laser, flow velocity measurements through LDA, PIV and Pitot, flame diagnostics with intrusive methods such as suction and temperature probes. He has carried out theoretical-experimental research on the feasibility of applying new technologies in combustion and energy generation in the industry and their respective impacts on the environment, as well as in the evaluation of the greenhouse gases produced during the burning, both of biomass and biofuels. and the burning of fossil fuels.

Felipe Solferini

Technician in Mechanics graduated from Colégio Técnico Industrial de Guaratinguetá. Mechanical Engineer graduated from the Federal University of Itajubá. He did an exchange program through the Science Without Borders Program at Queens University in Kingston (Canada) for a period of 16 months. He did a technical internship at the National Institute for Space Research at the Combustion and Propulsion Laboratory (12 months) and a technical internship at the Queens University Combustion Laboratory (12 months). He is currently pursuing a doctorate at the Instituto Tecnológico de Aeronáutica in the area of aerospace propulsion and energy, specifically in the area of flame propagation in internal combustion engines with optical access. Participates in the development of research in the area of combustion, gasification, biofuels, energy conversion and mitigation of pollutants. Has experience in modeling, testing and optimization of combustion processes.
