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

21 June 2017 - 23 June 2017
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

26 June 2017 - 29 June 2017
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.

First International Conference on Smart Energy Carriers

January 21 - January 23
Centro Congressi Università Federico II, Napoli, Via Partenope, 36
Napoli, Napoli 80121 Italy
+ Google Map

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…

Workshop on MILD combustion

January 24 - January 25
Centro Congressi Università Federico II, Napoli, Via Partenope, 36
Napoli, Napoli 80121 Italy

Workshop on MILD combustion: modelling challenges, experimental configurations and diagnostic tool Provisional Program available MILD/flameless/colorless/distributed/… combustion regimes ensure very high combustion efficiencies with reduced soot, NOx and noise emissions, compared to conventional combustion regimes, due to the reduced temperature peaks and macro-scale homogeneity. MILD combustion has been implemented in some furnace-based applications; however, its application in power generation and manufacturing processes is hindered by the limited understanding of turbulence/chemistry/radiation interactions in this combustion regime. The complexity of MILD combustion is…
