Today we have published the summaries and Chairmen’s presentations of  both workshops held during the 14th Members’ Conference.

  •  Solid Fuel Panel Workshop

  • Oil and Gaseous Fuel Panel Workshop

The Solid Fuel Panel Workshop was chaired by our Superintendent of Research, Hartmut Spliethoff.  Whilst the Oil and Gaseous Fuel Panel Workshop was chaired by our Deputy Superintendent of Research, Neil Fricker.

Both workshop discussed the future requirements in the various field of combustion research.  The Solid Fuel Panel Workshop focused on the discussion on how to respond to the requirement of the Carbon Constrained Environment and concluded that Oxy-Coal Combustion will play a significant role in the future.  On the other hand, the Oil and Gaseous Fuel Panel Workshop discussed the various drivers that determines the future research requirements and the this workshop concludes on how IFRF could support the needs of the industry in respond to these drivers.
