The 8th International Conference on Clean Coal Technologies
Coal is the world’s primary source of electricity and is projected to remain so for decades to come, with growth strongly driven by the need to improve electricity access and meet energy demand in the developing world. However, growing concerns over the environmental impact of fossil fuel combustion present an equally pressing need for this valuable energy resource to be exploited as cleanly and efficiently as possible.
CCT2017 will provide a leading international forum for the showcasing and discussion of clean coal technologies, including:
- high efficiency, low emissions plant
- developments in carbon capture
- SOx, NOx, mercury, and particulate controls
- low rank coal utilisation
- policy and financing
- social acceptance
- gasification, IGCC and IGFC
- underground coal gasification and coal-bed methane
- high-temperature materials
- advanced power cycles such as supercritical CO2 turbines
- coal to chemicals
- efficiency upgrading technologies
- fluidised bed combustion
- biomass cofiring and co-gasification
- coal characterisation and blending
Select papers will be published in a special issue of the journal Fuel.
Following a welcome reception at the beautiful Palazzo de Candia on Monday 8 May, three days of technical sessions and keynotes will take place from 9-11 May.
The event will include a gala dinner at the medieval Convento San Giuseppe on Wednesday 10 May, and on Friday 12th May, a technical visit is available to a limited number of delegates (first come, first served). This visit will include Sotacarbo's research facility, the nearby museum on the history of coal mining in the region, and Enel's 350 MW CFB power plant at Portovesme. A coach will depart from the T Hotel and return to Cagliari via the airport, before 17.00. Lunch is included.
Please purchase tickets through the 'Attend' page of this website. Students should email a scan of student ID to Alvina.Board@iea-coal.org to activate the student discount. The welcome reception and conference dinner are included in the registration fee, but additional tickets can be purchased for any guests attending the dinner only.
