The IEA Clean Coal Centre's workshop on AUSC power plant (AUSC3) returns to Rome on 13-14 December 2017, hosted by the Centro Sviluppo Materiali (Centre for Materials Development).
The development and demonstration of metal alloys which can operate at steam conditions up to 700oC is essential for raising the efficiency of coal power plant towards 50% and beyond, and holds enormous potential for reducing global CO2 emissions. AUSC3 will bring together the key research programmes in this field worldwide and highlight the progress made since the last edition.
This edition of the workshop will be held in close cooperation with the participants in the EU research project: 'Demonstration Plant - 700oC' (DP700), Doosan Babcock, CSM, Cranfield University, DEKRA, TU Chemnitz, TU Darmstadt, TU Gratz and VTT, who will be presenting their Phase 1 results at the event. Other organisations presenting include:
Dongfang Turbine Co.
Electric Power Research Institute (US AUSC program)
BHEL (Indian AUSC programme)
Electric Power Planning and Engineering Institute (China)
Waigaoqiao Power Plant
East China Electric Power Design Institute
Korea Institute of Energy Research
Kazakh National University
