TOTeM 41 “Optimisation of OXY/COAL/FGR systems – state of the art for scaling and modelling”. The event is the second public showcasing of the FP7 EU funded project - “RELCOM: Reliable and Efficient Combustion of Oxygen/Coal/Recycled Flue Gas Mixtures”.
TOTeM 41 was chaired by Prof. Wojciech Nowak of Czestochowa University of Technology, and featured a mix of keynote and invited speakers as well as a poster session. Delegates 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 keynote speakers at the event were: Gerry Hesselmann (Doosan Babcock) who addressed the topic “Progress in oxy-fuel combustion”;Toby Lockwood of IEA – Clean Coal Centre, with “The international status of oxy-coal combustion for CCS” and Elzbieta Wroblewska from the Polish Ministry of Economy explore the "Society and political acceptance for CCS".
IFRF is a partner in RELCOM – “Reliable and Efficient Combustion of Oxygen/Coal/Recycled Flue Gas Mixtures” and this is the second TOTeM organized during the four year life of the project. The meetings provide an opportunity for project partners to disseminate their findings outside of the partner consortium.
