Aimed primarily at Marie Curie fellows but open to IFRF Members and representatives from the international combustion community at large, “Clean Industrial Fuel Conversion” will link the IFRF with INECSE (Integrated Energy Conversion for a Sustainable Environment) in a training intervention which promises to bridge research and application around this topical issue.
The course will combine formal lectures delivered by representatives from the IFRF research and industrial community with an IFRF orientation session and a visit to the Research Station at Livorno. There will be abundant networking opportunities for both INECSE participants and potential users of their research experience and results.
A full programme will appear shortly on the IFRF Events Calendar along with details of fees and logistics. The preliminary programme features four technology modules, two power generation modules, and five industrial application modules as well as a session on mathematical modelling.
– Energy, present and future
– Resources and fuels: conventional and new fuels
– Combustion (PF, FBC, ..)
– Gasification and pyrolysis; gas turbines
– Environment (local, regional, global)
– Emission components and associated problems
– Regulations, consequences
– Process control
– Measurement and analysis
POWER GENERATION MODULES:
Power Generation I:
– Technology development
– Status, operation, problems
Power Generation II:
– New processes
– Future trends
INDUSTRIAL APPLICATION MODULES:
Oil and gas
Iron and steel
Cement and lime
The Mathematical Modelling session will deal with principles, validation and application.
Overall the course, coordinated by Professor Klaus Hein of the University of Stuttgart, will provide an overview of the status of technology in development and application, cover associated problems, and invite feedback to the scientific community for future research topics.
