TOTeM 41 “Optimisation of OXY/COAL/RFG systems – state of the art for scaling and modelling” kicks off in Warsaw in a few weeks’ time. Abstracts for poster submissions will be accepted until 1 June. The final programme, a registration form and full details of venue and accommodation are available on both the RELCOM and IFRF websites. The event is a public showcasing of the FP7 EU funded project “RELCOM: Reliable and Efficient Combustion of Oxygen/Coal/Recycled Flue Gas Mixtures”.

TOTeM 41 takes place on 10 and 11 June at the Radisson Blu Centrum Hotel in Warsaw, Poland, and will be chaired by Prof. Wojciech Nowak of Czestochowa University of Technology.  A mix of keynote and invited speakers will be featured and there will also be a poster session.  In addition, delegates will be exposed to representatives from the project “Oxy-combustion technology for PC and FBC boilers with CO2 capture”, financed with a 25 million dollar grant from the National Center for Research & Development in Poland as part of the Advanced Technologies for Energy Generation programme.

The three keynote speakers at the event include Gerry Hesselmann (Doosan Babcock) who will address the topic “Progress in oxy-fuel combustion”, and Toby Lockwood of IEA – Clean Coal Centre, with “The international status of oxy-coal combustion for CCS”. A speaker from the Polish Ministry of Economy will explore the sociopolitical issues around CCS.

As would be expected from an IFRF TOTeM, there will be ample opportunities for panel discussion around the related research and development requirements. A tour to the IEn Laboratories is also included.

The Final Programme, a Registration form and a Second Announcement appear on the IFRF and RELCOM websites.

IFRF is a partner in RELCOM – “Reliable and Efficient Combustion of Oxygen/Coal/Recycled Flue Gas Mixtures” and this is the second TOTeM to be organized by IFRF during the four year life of the project. Such public meetings provide an opportunity for Relcom partners to disseminate their findings outside of the partner consortium.  A final public meeting will be held in Munich next June, coinciding with the 18th IFRF International Member Conference.
