Paris, France, Monday 28th November 2016

The paper "Investigation of modelling approaches for scattering and absorption properties of particles in pulverized coal combustion" by Tim Gronarz, Martin Habermehl, Oliver Hatzfeld and Reinhold Kneer has just been published in the 'IFRF online journal Industrial Combustion'. The authors are affilated to the Institute of Heat and Mass Transfer of RWTH Aachen University, Germany. In this work, the scattering of thermal radiation by particles during solid fuel combustion modelling was investigated, the results of approximate methods were compared to exact solutions obtained by Mie theory. The representation of radiative properties by tabulation and interpolation approach is also presented and discussed. The paper is free to read and to download at http://www.industrial.combustion.ifrf.net/papers_new.html

2 Clearwater broadens its scope

From the Clearwater Clean Energy Conference

Louisa, VA, USA, Monday 28th November 2016

A new US Administration takes office in January and it will bring about many changes for the United States’ energy policies. This means that the USA and its trading and technical partners will be faced with new priorities, challenges and opportunities.  According to the statements in the recent Presidential campaign, the role of energy technologies will be a key part of this new Administration.    

The Clearwater Conference Organising Committee therefore decided to broaden the scope of the conference at its June 2017 event.  The Former Clearwater Clean Coal Conference becomes the Clearwater Clean Energy Conference, and will be held on June 11 to 15, 2017, at the Sheraton Sand Key in Clearwater, Florida, USA. While the conference will continue to focus on opportunities and challenges as new and improved technologies are developed, the next Clearwater Conference  will also cover all the proposed programs and policies of the new US Administration.
