Chemistry in Energy

The Energy Sector of the Royal Society of Chemistry is pleased to announce that it is organising and promoting the 1st “Chemistry in Energy” onference to be hosted by Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland.

The purpose of this Conference is to bring together scientists and technologists from academia and industry with interests in the applications of Chemistry in the Energy Industry.

Abstracts should be submitted to the Secretariat by e-mail by 31st December. The purpose of these abstracts is to enable the Programme Sub-committee to assess their suitability for the Conference Programme and it is the intention of the Conference Executive Committee to publish the submitted abstracts in the form of a booklet of the Conference Proceedings, to be distributed at the Conference.

Prospective authors are asked to submit one or more abstracts by downloading a template from the website. The closing date for submissions is 31st December 2014, and submitted abstracts MUST conform to the specified format. The scope should cover, but is not limited to, the mainstream energy sources.

  • Fossil fuels: oil, gas and coal), (upstream and downstream and including carbon capture and storage, environmental issues, including emissions to air, environmental mitigation and control systems, future fossil fuel power generation technologies and steam cycle chemistry/materials issues.
  • Nuclear
  • Renewables In addition, the conference will also welcome abstracts, which illustrate contributions from chemical sciences to unconventional energy sources, (fracking and underground gasification), nuclear fusion, maximising oil and gas recovery, solving challenges for fossil fuels, transitioning to renewables, energy distribution and conversion, materials developments for energy technologies, environmental and emissions issues, and analytical chemistry in the energy industry.

Research students are strongly encouraged to submit papers, attend and give presentations, and conference fees for students will be significantly reduced.
