First Annual Meeting and SECs for Power, Industry and Engines Workshop

26 August 2015 - 28 August 2015
CERTH Conference Centre, Thessaloniki, Greece + Google Map

The First Annual Meeting of the SMARTCATs COST Action took place, on August 26-28th, 2015, in the CERTH Conference Centre in Thessaloniki, Greece. Concurrently and as a natural complement to the SMARTCATs meeting a workshop on “Smart Energy Carriers for Power, Industry and Engines” has been also organized. The agendas of the two events have been strongly entangled to help maximize the effective exchange of ideas and respective requirements among industrial and academic participants. To this aim, in the first day of…

WG4 WORKSHOP

5 April 2016 - 6 April 2016
School of Engineering University Federico II, Napoli, Piazzale Tecchio 80
Napoli, 80125
+ Google Map

First WG4 workshop of the Action was held in Napoli (Italy) on 5th and 6th of April 2016 The workshop has been centered on the topics of Workgroup 4 of the Action: Chemical data mining and their organization in easily accesible repositories represents a key point in realizing reliable and effective chemical data libraries to be used to simulate new fuels reactive behaviour. This topic is transversal to the other Action Workgroup since experimental and modeling activities may find a natural common point…

SMARTCATs Training School

4 July 2016 - 7 July 2016
Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest, Hungary, Budapest Hungary + Google Map

Analysis, uncertainty quantification, validation, optimization and reduction of detailed combustion mechanism for practical use of Smart Energy Carriers Institute of Chemistry, Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE), Budapest, Hungary Scope Combustion phenomena can be interpreted by detailed kinetic reaction mechanisms consisting of several hundreds or even thousands of reaction steps. It may be important to determine the key reaction steps that drive the overall reactivity of the chemical system or the production of key species. It may also be necessary to include…

Workshop on “Sustainable and Smart Energy Carriers for Decentralised Energy Production”

March 16 - March 17
ENGIE Lab Laborelec, Rodestraat 125
1630 Linkebeek, Belgium
+ Google Map

In the distributed energy production scenario the role of Smart Energy Carriers (SECs) becomes of outmost relevance in terms of local availability and of their potential use in the available technology.  The need of SECs conversion system integration in the energy grid to moderate the effect of intermittency of renewable energy increases the relevance of a thorough and widely shared knowledge on the many possible interactions among production and distribution layers of the grid. The workshop aimed at triggering a wide-ranging discussion…

International Bunsen Discussion Meeting on Chemistry and Diagnostics for Clean Combustion – June 2017

June 21 - June 23
Bielefeld University – Germany, Bielefeld, Germany + Google Map

Providing clean(er) energy is one of the grand societal challenges. Today more than 80% of the global primary energy for transportation and power generation involves fossil-fuel combustion, with a slowly increasing fraction of bio-derived fuels. Combustion of fossil fuels increases carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere and it leads to undesired pollutants, including especially nitrogen oxides and particulates. Climate effects, poor air quality, and health issues have increased global awareness regarding these emissions. Because of the scale of energy needed,…

CLEAN-Gas Summer School – Opportunities and challenges of new energy carriers

June 26 - June 29
Université Libre de Bruxelles, Bruxelles, Belgium + Google Map

CLEAN-Gas (www.clean-gas.polimi.it) is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie action, which brings together four European Universities, Politecnico di Milano, Technische Universitaet Darmstadt, Centrale Supélec and Université Libre de Bruxelles-Belgium. The main objective of the programme is to form 15 highly qualified engineers and develop new experimental and numerical approaches for improving natural gas combustion. The second school organized in the framework of CLEAN-Gas program will be focused on "opportunities and challenges of new energy carriers" and will be sponsored by SMARTCATs COST Action.
