5th Meeting of the IEAGHG Oxyfuel Combustion Research Network

IEAGHG, in cooperation with Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST), is pleased to announce the 5th Meeting of the IEAGHG Oxyfuel Combustion Research Network.  This will be held at Wuhan, China from 27-30 October 2015.  A visit to HUST 35MWth Pilot Plant Facility will be part of the programme.

One of the key messages that has become evident from the different stakeholders attending our network meetings and OCC conferences is that Oxyfuel Combustion Technology for Power Plant with CCS is ready for demonstration. How to achieve the goal to build the first commercial scale demo plant is an important priority of the next 5 years.  Failure to achieve this goal means losing the progress made during the last decade.

This meeting shall provide a forum to share knowledge and expertise. Additionally, updates to all active demonstration projects and what people have learnt from operating various oxyfuel pilot plants should remain the focus of this knowledge sharing activity. New and novel technologies in oxyfuel combustion will be promoted widely.

The main topics for this meeting will cover the following:

 Boiler and Burner Development
• Char combustion and devolatilisation kinetics and modeling
• Heat transfer experiments and modeling
• Ash slagging, fouling and deposition
• Fate of sulfur during oxyfuel combustion (SO2, SO3 and sulfur in ash) and modeling
• In furnace sulfur reduction concepts
• NOx emissions mechanisms, in furnace reduction control, modeling
• N2O emissions mechanisms (for oxy-CFB)
• Mercury and other trace elements
• Oxy-PC and Oxy-CFB Boiler design
• Air ingress management
    Oxygen Production
