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.
Not currently offered.
This Course was last offered in Semester 1 - 2015.
On successful completion of the course students will be able to:
1. an introduction to, thermodynamics, heat transfer, chemistry, combustion and reaction kinetics fundamentals of technologies such as oxy-fuel and chemical looping combustion.
2. an understanding of physical and chemical processes associated with carbon capture and sequestration
3. To establish, at an advanced level, an appreciation of fuel technology, power generation, combustion and environmental implications of clean coal technologies.
