Advanced Clean Coal Technologies

Course code CHEE6200Units 10Level 6000Faculty of Engineering and Built EnvironmentSchool of Engineering

Aims to provide students with an overview of advanced clean coal technologies. The course will establish a fundamental appreciation of topics such as oxy-fuel combustion, chemical looping combustion, carbon capture and sequestration.

Students enrolled in the Graduate Certificate Engineering Science and Master of Engineering Science will undertake this as a short course.
