Carbon Abatement Using Surface Engineering Technologies (CASET)

Engineering approached to carbon abatement need to be multi-faceted and based on cost-effective, energy effective solutions with high reliability and durability. Carbon Abatement Technologies will result in more aggressive component operating conditions. To improve component reliability it is proposed to develop three coating systems to be applied through the gas turbine hot gas path. These new and novel coatings are based on optimisation of functionality graded high temperature structures and offer a low cost solution that can be implemented in the near term, including the possibility of retrofitting to existing plant equipment.
