Cutting-Edge Technology for Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage
There is general agreement amongst the nations of the world that increasing amounts of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere are effecting the world’s climate. One option is to eliminate the use of fossil fuels but this is probably not going to happen in the short term. Thus carbon capture has emerged as a possible means for cleaner combustion of carbon-based fuels. Carbon capture is the removal of carbon dioxide from flue gas before it has been emitted to the atmosphere. Once the carbon has been captured it can either be injected in suitable subsurface formations (Carbon Storage) or converted to useful products (Utilization).
13th Mediterranean Conference on Calorimetry and Thermal Analysis
The 13th Mediterranean Conference on Calorimetry and Thermal Analysis (Medicta2017) is organized by AICAT-GICAT (Associazione Italiana di Calorimetria e Analisi Termica e Gruppo Interdivisionale di Calorimetria e Analisi Termica della Società Chimica Italiana) jointly with the Calorimetry and Thermal Analysis Associations (AFCAT, CATPOR, GECAT, HSTA) of some other countries of the Mediterranean area.
The Conference is devoted to the fundamental and applicative aspects of the advanced calorimetric and thermal techniques, giving an opportunity of critical discussions, planning and information exchange for researchers active in this field.
The Conference will cover the following topics:
- Applications of Calorimetry and Thermal Analysis to:
- Kinetics, Catalysis, Materials
- Solutions, Mixtures
- Life Science
- Environment and Safety
- Cultural Heritage
- Instruments and New Methods
7th International Conference on CARBON FOR ENERGY STORAGE AND ENVIRINMENT PROTECTION
CESEP'17 will be the seventh international conference on CARBON FOR ENERGY STORAGE AND ENVIRONMENT PROTECTION, originally initiated by the French Carbon Group. The Conference will be devoted to synthesis, functionalization and application of new types of carbon and graphite forms, such as graphene, fullerenes, carbon nanotubes, nanofibers and composites. Such materials have already found many applications in environmental protection, water purification and remediation, gas separation and storage, solar energy conversion and use, green chemistry process, the power industry, electronics, biotechnologies and medicine, e.g., as adsorbents, sensors, catalyst supports, electrodes in energy sources (supercapacitors, batteries, fuel cells), heat storage devices, implants etc. CESEP’17 conference emphasis is not only placed on fundamental research but also on new areas of application.
