As already published on this website, the CO2OLHEAT Project coordinated by ETN Global aims to demonstrate (at TRL7) the operation of a 2 MW Waste-Heat-to-power (WH2P) skid based on a 2MW-sCO2 cycle, able to efficiently valorize local waste heat at a significant temperature of 400°C in the CEMEX cement manufacturing plant in Prachovice (CZ).
ETN Global initiated, in September 2022, a series of webinars aimed at providing a forum where the R&D activities in the area of supercritical Carbon Dioxide technologies can be disseminated and made known to a wider audience. This initative has been joined by seven international and national projects, funded by the Horizon 2020 programme of the European Commission (CO2OLHEAT, COMPASsCO2, SCARABEUS, DESOLINATION, SOLARSCO2OL, sCO2-4-NPP) and by national R&D programmes in Germany (CARBOSOLA) and the Czech Republic (sCO2-Efekt).
The first webinar, held on September 22nd, aimed to introduce these projects in a single session, providing the main features of the project from technical and administrative standpoints. Opportunities for collaboration between projects and with stakeholders were also highlighted. Presentations can be downloaded from the SCARABEUS website: Link.
The second webinar is coming soon and it will be focused on “compressors”, since this was highlighted as one of the most critical research areas in order to deploy supercritical CO2 power cycles commercially. Three outstanding speakers will cover both fundamentals of sCO2 compressor design as well as technical challenges and industrial experiences: Giacomo Persico (Politecnico di Milano), Marco Ruggiero (Baker-Hughes) and Rasmus Rubycz (Atlas-Copco).
The event will take place on December 5th, 14.00 – 15.00 CET. Follow this link to registration: https://lnkd.in/eAtxEwZk
