HiTeMP-2 Forum: Be part of the conversation to transition high temperature minerals processing to zero carbon emissions
Professor Gus Nathan, Director of the Centre for Energy Technology at the University of Adelaide and Convenor of the 2020 HiTEMP-2 Forum on Zero Carbon High Temperature Minerals Processing discusses the upcoming Forum to be held at the International Wine Centre, Adelaide, March 16-18. He explains why heavy industries such as iron/steel, alumina/aluminium, cement, lime and copper are coming together to solve the issue of carbon emissions in high temperature minerals processing.
After the success of the inaugural High Temperature Minerals Processing Forum (HiTeMP) held in 2018, delegates from around the world will once again converge on Adelaide for HiTeMP-2, to be held March 16-18, 2020 at the National Wine Centre, Adelaide.
The Centre for Energy Technology (CET) held a very successful one day forum addressing the complementary roles anticipated for various emerging alternative carbon-neutral hydrogen production technologies, the Hydrogen Production Technologies, HyPT Forum, on Monday the 23rd of September 2019. The forum will now run on a biennial basis.
Dr Alfonso Chinnici has been interviewed about the Solar Hybrid Receiver Combustor, a device which blends hydrogen combustion with solar thermal radiation.
Our researchers have found that introducing concentrating solar thermal (CST) technologies to the Bayer alumina process could enable a 29-45% solar share. This would displace the need for natural gas and decrease operating fuel costs.
The University of Adelaide has today been announced as a founding partner of a national initiative aimed at better positioning entrepreneurs, developers and low carbon technology start-ups to bring their climate solutions to market.
