||Growing energy demand and increasing concerns regarding energy security and pollution emission have sparked worldwide research and development for clean and renewable power technologies. Such technologies include but are not limited to clean coal technologies, carbon capture, concentrated solar power, biomass fuels & hydrogen-based power systems.
New specific high-temperature operating conditions are expected for each of these processes and the durability of candidate materials and coatings need to be assessed in order to meet targeted component lifetimes.
This symposium will focus on both the scientific and technological aspects of material degradation in clean power generation technologies, including: new material and coating development, mechanical properties characterization, corrosion resistance in complex environments, and component lifetime prediction.
The goal is to provide a forum for scientists and engineers from academia, national laboratories, and industry to present the latest developments and insight on the performance of materials being considered or used in clean power systems.
Proposed session topics
• Novel materials and materials degradation in clean coal and biomass power generation, hydrogen production from varied sources, and hydrogen-based IC and turbine systems.
• Materials for high-temperature heat transport systems with novel heat transport media, including, but not limited to, liquid metal, salt, and supercritical CO2.
• Degradation modeling and lifetime prediction of materials used in clean and renewable power systems.
