Energy carriers are gaining a central role in the panorama of energy production systems as they can be considered a viable answer to environmental sustainability while accomplishing supply security issue. Coupled with advanced combustion technologies, they are synergistic twin strategies that can satisfy the requirements of geo-political and environmental sustainability and security.
A Smart Energy Carrier (SEC) identifies any molecule (derived from standard, alternative or unconventional sources) locally produced or made available to be safely and cleanly transformed into energy by means of the best accessible combustion technology. The study of SECs related to their use in combustion-based energy production systems, in all its aspect, has been so far the framework within the networking activities of the SMARTCATs COST Action. The network has grown over the years and after several successful Action meeting, it is compelling to organize an international conference on Smart Energy Carriers.
The first International Conference on Smart Energy Carriers will take place in Naples on 21-23 of January, 2019. This Conference will also be the last general and Committee Members meetings of the SMARCATs COST Action.
The main aim of the Conference will be to point out (Smart) Energy Carriers Chemistry and Technologies current state of knowledge and perspectives. Invited lectures as well as contributed presentations from Action participants will be arranged in a three days conference attempting to give the largest possible room to discussion and interaction among the participants.
