  • Oxidation Resistant Coatings for Ultra-High Temperature Transition Metals and Metal Alloys

    Type: 
    Product

    Background: Components that operate under high temperatures and pressures such as those used in turbines and airplane brakes require materials with excellent chemical and physical properties. Nickel-based alloys (or superalloys) are the current industry standard for these applications. Coating nickel alloys with aluminum oxide and thermal barriers allows the final product to withstand temperatures beyond the melting point of nickel. However there is a growing need for products with properties that nickel cannot achieve.

  • A Facile Preparation Method for Highly Dispersed Supported Metal Catalyst

    Type: 
    Product

    There has been an increased emphasis on the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions such as carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4). A technology proposed to serve the purpose of utilization of greenhouse gases is the catalytic reforming of CH4 with CO2 to produce syngas. The major issue impeding the development of this reaction is its high tendency towards carbon formation which will quickly deactivate conventional catalysts used for reforming reactions when steam or oxygen is not present to eliminate deposited carbon.

  • Zero carbon Britain: rethinking the future

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    This report explores how Britain can achieve Carbon neutrality. Building upon the groundwork laid by the Zero Carbon Britain project over the last six years, the authors incorporate the latest developments in science and technology, plus more detailed research in two main areas: balancing highly variable energy supply and demand; and the nutritional implications of a low carbon diet. The report highlights the need for further research on adaptation, economic transition and policy that would achieve sufficient greenhouse gas emissions reductions quickly and equitably.

  • Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institute

    Type: 
    Organisation
    Country of registration:
    Australia
    Relation to CTCN:
    Network Member

    The Global CCS Institute is an international membership organisation that works to accelerate the development, demonstration and deployment of carbon capture and storage (CCS), a vital technology to tackle climate change and provide energy security. CCS is used to help cut down green house gas emissions by preventing CO2 from being released into the atmosphere. The Institute was established in 2009 with initial funding from the Australian Government to accelerate the development of CCS globally.

  • A resource and technology assessment of coal utilisation in India

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    Forming part of a wider series, this paper explores strategies for reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from coal-powered electricity. It reviews coal utilisation in India and examines current and emerging coal power technologies with near- and long-term potential for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from coal power generation. Key points highlighted include:

  • Renewable Energy

    Type: 
    Product

    NCF develops a system that dissociates CO2 and H2O into Syngas and Oxygen using concentrated solar energy. The obtained syngas is then converted into liquid fuels or methanol an excellent alternative fuel and the one of the building block in many chemical processes. The oxygen can be used for clean fuel combustion. The system is self-contained extracting all necessary energy for the process from the solar energy. Eventually the product will be in the form of large plants installed in high solar radiation areas producing hundreds of thousands of tons of fuel per year.

  • Nitrogen-Selective Membrane for Carbon Capture

    Type: 
    Product

    This patented dense catalytic membrane is designed to retrofit existing pulverized coal power plants for large-scale postcombustion carbon capture. The technology takes advantage of the nitrogen (N2) driving force and high temperatures of flue gas to effectively remove N2 and isolate CO2 for transport and storage. Compared to the current amine scrubbing techniques (e.g. MEA-based systems) of a similar scale the proposed membrane approach would have lower capital costs and land requirements with decreased parasitic power loads.

  • Institut International de l'Écologie Industrielle et de l'Économie Verte

    Type: 
    Organisation
    Country of registration:
    Switzerland
    Relation to CTCN:
    Network Member

    The Institut International de l'Écologie Industrielle et de l'Économie Verte is an establishment of reflection, research and practice of industrial ecology. The Institute has an engineering division and an expertise cluster, which enables the Institute to identify new technologies linked to industrial ecology and to advise through a specific methodology adapted to local contexts. The project managers work on the practical execution of mandates and on the implementation of the industrial ecology with a particular attention to Switzerland and developing countries.

  • Black Liquor Gasification

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    This article explains the basics of black liquor gasification in the pulp and paper industry. Black liquor, which accounts for most of the fuel consumed in Kraft mills, is usually combusted in recovery boilers to recover chemicals and to produce process steam and on-site electricity (via a steam turbine). The efficiency of such boilers is, however, low (around 65%-70%). Black liquor gasification is a process in which a clean synthesis gas (syngas) is produced from black liquor by converting its biomass content into a gaseous energy carrier.

  • Integrated coal Gasification Combined Cycle Power Plants

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    The Integrated coal Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) system consist of coal gasification process and gas turbine combined cycle. Coal is gasified in a entrained flow gasifier, whose gas is introduced to combined cycle power generation. The IGCC system has attracted attention as a major next-generation environment-friendly thermal power generation system due to its superior power generating efficiency compared to conventional coal-fired thermal power generation and ability to reduce CO2 emissions.
