Capacity Building Courses

The O-fWG runs courses for countries somewhat new to the technology. The first Capacity Building Course encouraged participation from Korea, China and India and was held in Korea in February 2009.

A typical two day course will have the following format:

Day 1

Introduction to carbon capture technology options and GHG reduction
Oxy-fuel status and technology overview
Oxy-fuel science
Oxygen supply
CO2 compression

Day 2

Pilot scale testing
Detailed outline of particular oxy-fuel demonstrations
Discussion and panel session
Visit to plant or pilot-scale facilities

The 5th Oxyfuel Capacity Building Course

8-9th September 2013
Campus de Ponferrada, Avda. de Astorga, s/n 24401,
Ponferrada SPAIN

Introduction

The fifth Oxy-fuel Capacity Building Course was held on the days prior to the 3rd Oxyfuel Combus-tion Conference in Leon, Spain.

The Oxyfuel capacity building courses have been launched first in 2009 and have since then been held in Daejeon, Korea, Beijing, China, Yeppoon, Australia and Tokyo, Japan. The courses are designed as stand alone, covering status, theory and practice, and to provide background knowledge to delegates new to oxy-fuel technology for carbon capture and storage. The target audience for this course are engineers from power generation industries and university research students.

This course was organised by Professor Joerg Maier, IFK University of Stutgart.  Professor Maier has been an integral member of the Oxyfuel Working Group and has contributed to the Capacity Building Course since their inception in 2009.

The 3rd APP OFWG Oxy-fuel Capacity Building Course

11-12 September 2011, Capricorn Hotel, Yeppoon, Queensland AUSTRALIA

LATEST NEWS UPDATE

A Successful Course

With over 40 delegates from universities, power stations and government bodies, the 3rd APP OFWG Capacity Building Course was considered a complete success.  The course was discussed in a number of forums throughout the IEA 2nd Oxyfuel Combustion Conference with particular mention paid to the international depth and participation of attending delegates.  Congratulations to all of the lecturers who kindly donated their time for the course.  Their presentations can be found through the links below.  

 

Introduction

The course will be held the day prior to the IEA 2nd Oxy-fuel Combustion Conference at the same venue.  The course will be designed as an introduction to Oxy-fuel technology, to provide background knowledge to delegates new to the subject.  The target audience for the course will be for university and power generation industries within Australia and Asia.

Oxy-fuel technology is a leading carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology

Conventional pf coal-fired boilers use air for combustion in which the nitrogen from the air dilutes the CO2 concentration in the flue gas. In oxy-fuel technology, combustion with oxygen typically of greater than 95% purity and recycled flue gas is used for combustion of the fuel. By recycling the flue gas, a gas consisting mainly of CO2 and water is generated, ready for sequestration without stripping of the CO2 from the gas stream. The recycled flue gas is used to control flame temperature and make up the volume of the missing N2 to ensure there is enough gas to carry the heat through the boiler. Demonstrations pilot-scale studies will lead to commercial deployment.

The course is targeted at delegates from Asian countries where understanding of oxy-fuel technology is developing, including China, India, Korea and SE Asian countries and follows the most successful course held at KEPRI in Korea in February 2009.

The course covers practical and scientific aspects, and provides the needs of two groups of participants.

The afternoon of the first day outlined underpinning science, laboratory, mathematical modeling and pilot-scale evaluation of coal. The second day, Tuesday March 16, detailed research developments, and the status of current international demonstrations, a session with a panel of experts to answer questions nominated prior by delegates.
