EES are pleased to support the International Workshop on Plasmas for Energy and Environmental Applications IWPEEA-2016 which will take place in Liverpool, UK from 21 – 24 August 2016.
This workshop will bring together people from academia and industry who are interested in the latest scientific and technological advances in core areas of emerging plasma technology for environmental clean-up and energy applications.
The workshop will cover the following topics:
- Plasma generation, diagnostics and modelling for energy and environmental applications.
- Plasma chemistry for energy conversion and fuel and chemical synthesis (e.g. greenhouse gas conversion, ammonia synthesis, hydrogen production, CO2 to fuels/chemicals etc.)
- Plasma environmental clean-up (e.g. removal of VOCs, NOx, odour, tars, PM and PAHs, sterilisation, ozone generation etc.)
- Plasma treatment of waste liquid (e.g. wastewater treatment)
- Plasma solid waste treatment (e.g. plasma gasification, pyrolysis, vitrification etc.)
- Plasma synthesis of catalysts and energy materials (e.g. carbon nanomaterials)
