A range of technologies has been proposed for CO2 capture in the power sector, but only one, post-combustion capture (PCC) using amines, has been implemented at scale to date. Other capture options proposed and the reasons for the attractiveness of PCC will be discussed.
CO2 capture and storage technologies have been recognized as the primary option to mitigate the issue of climate change caused by the utilization of fossil fuels. In the last decades, several CO2 capture approaches have been developed, such as absorption, adsorption, membrane, cryogenic, hydrate and chemical looping combustion etc.
This talk will present fundamentals and review of recent efforts in the development and validation of a combustion chemical kinetic mechanism for sCO2 oxy-methane/natural gas combustion that can be used for computational fluid dynamic code (CFD) simulations in sCO2 oxy-combustion development.
This presentation details a pathway that KAUST’s Clean Combustion Research Center (CCRC) is following to accelerate the conversion of commercial gas turbines from natural gas to carbon-free ammonia-hydrogen blends.
Even if several studies performed during the mid-60’s investigated the possibility to consider ammonia as a fuel for internal combustion engines, mainly by means of CFR experiments or OD modeling, ammonia-based combustion engine fueling methods are not ready to be marketed not only because of supply and safety issues but also because of its combustion characteristics compared to conventional fuels.
In the recent times, the interest towards ammonia combustion has been significantly increasing for two major reasons: a smarter use of the energy resources to reduce energy waste, and the need to control pollutant emissions.
This year, the E-Poster session was hosted virtually as a competition. We received 40 posters from research students from 26 different institutions around the world. The winning posters will also be presented at this time.
To achieve net zero emissions by 2050, the industry sector will need to get close to zero emissions by itself. The industry requires large amounts of heat, which represent ¾ of its energy needs.
The Saudi Arabian Mining Company, Ma’aden, is a diversified mining business with operations in the extraction of phosphate, industrial minerals, aluminum, gold and base metals. Mining operations are organized in Strategic Business Units (“SBU’s”) which are profit centers with full accountability for profit and loss.
he presentation will address key opportunities to decarbonise the high temperature calcination process within alumina manufacture which, in turn, is one of the most challenging processes to decarbonise in the production of aluminium.
Solar thermal water splitting (STWS) is a method for producing renewable hydrogen from water and concentrated sunlight using energy from the entire solar spectrum to directly drive the splitting reactions and, therefore, providing for high theoretical solar to hydrogen efficiencies.
There is growing interest in possible pathways to cost-effectively decarbonise the production of copper, which is the third-most widely-used metal with a current global demand of 18 million metric tonnes per year.
The transition to low carbon future requires interim measures which allows the integration of renewable energy sources into existing systems and the development of new technology that integrate the new and the old.
