||Clean and sustainable energy is of paramount significance for industrial activities, economic development, environment and welfare of civilians. As such, research on generation, storage and applications of clean energy is stepping to the stage centre of both academia and industry.
This symposium aims to address the pressing needs for sustainable technologies with reduced energy consumption and environmental pollutions and the development and application of alternative sustainable energy to maintain a green environment and efficient and long-lasting energy supply.
The symposium is open to the participants from both industry and academia and focus on new and efficient energy technologies including innovative ore beneficiation, smelting technologies, and recycling and waste heat recovery, as well as emerging novel energy solutions. The sessions will also cover a broad range of mature and new technological aspects of sustainable energy ecosystems, processes that improve energy efficiency, reduce thermal emissions, and reduce carbon dioxide and other greenhouse emissions. Contributions from all areas of non-nuclear and non-traditional energy sources are welcomed.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
• Renewable Energy Resources to Reduce the Consumption of Traditional Fossil Fuels
• Emerging Technologies for Renewable Energy Harvesting, Conversion, and Storage
• New Concepts or Devices for Energy Generation, Conversion, and Distribution
• Waste Heat Recovery and Other Industrial Energy Efficient Technologies
• Energy Education and Energy Regulation
• Scale-up, Stability, and Life-Cycle Analysis of Energy Technologies and Improvement of Existing Energy-Intensive Processes
• Theory and Simulation in Energy Harvesting, Conversion, and Storage
• Design, Operation, and Optimization of Processes for Energy Generation (e.g., Carbon Capture) and Conversion of Energy Carriers
• Energy Efficiency Improvement in Process Engineering (e.g., for biomass conversion and improved combustion) and Electrical Engineering (e.g., for power conversion and developing smart grids)
• Thermo-electric/Electrolysis/Photo-electrolysis/Fundamentals of PV
• Emission Control, CO2 Capture and Conversion
• Carbon Sequestration Techniques
• CO2 and Other Greenhouse Gas Reduction Metallurgy in ferrous (iron & steel making and forming), non-ferrous and reactive metals including Critical Rare-earth Metals
• Sustainability and Life Cycle Assessment of Energy Systems
• Thermodynamics and Modelling for Sustainable Metallurgical Processes
