LATEST NEWS UPDATE

A Successful Course

With over 50 delegates from universities and power stations, the 4th OFWG Oxyfuel Capacity Building Course was considered a complete success.  The staff and students from the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in particular Dr Hirotatsu Watanabe, were integral to the success of the course and must be thanked for their efforts.  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 fourth Oxy-fuel Capacity Building Course was held on the days prior to the Clean Coal Day in Tokyo, Japan (September 4th/5th 2012, website http://www.jcoal.or.jp/index-en.html).  

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 the course were engineers from Japan power generation industries and university research students.
