POLITECNICO DI MILANO
Politecnico di Milano is a public technical university established in 1863, nowadays organised in 12 departments and a network of 6 Schools of Engineering, Architecture and Industrial Design. The number of students enrolled in all campuses is approximately 40,000, which makes the Politecnico di Milano the largest Engineering School in Italy. The research activity pursued at the Department of Energy spans a wide range of thermo-fluid-dynamic and chemical processes required to convert primary energy sources (including fossil, renewable and wastes) into useful forms of energy (electricity, heat, synthetic fuels) in stationary and mobile plants. The support to the SCARABEUS project will be provided mainly by the Group of Energy Conversion Systems (GECOS).
The main subjects investigated by the GECOS Group are related to advanced power generation technologies, either by using clean fuels or renewable energies.
POLIMI’s contribution to the project focuses the following areas:
1. Coordinator of the project.
2. CO2 blending assessment and thermodynamic properties definition (WP2).
3. Support to Performance the techno-economic assessment of the innovative concept (WP5).
4. Dissemination of results. As coordinator and university, several efforts will be devoted to disseminating the project results both to scientific and general public.
Giampaolo Manzolini is associate Professor of “Energy and Environmental Systems” at the School of Industrial Engineering, Politecnico di Milano; he has been involved in several national and European projects dealing with techno-economic assessment of innovative technologies for CO2 capture (CAESAR, CACHET-II, MATESA, STEPWISE and FRESME) as well as other projects on energy conversion system optimization (REFORCELL; FERRET and FLUIDCELL). He is the dissemination leader in REFORCELL, FERRET and FLUIDCELL as well as WP leader in FERRET and STEPWISE. He is the author of over sixty papers published on peer-reviewed journals.
