Methods for estimating the potential for such energy-efficient heat integration are commonly based on so-called pinch methodology, which builds on thermodynamic insights and techno-economic trade-offs. A core strength of pinch methodology is that it enables setting performance targets, which can guide early-stage design activities or be used to assess the potential of new processes. However, such targets are necessarily based on theoretical assumptions, and typically do not consider constraints for heat integration that may arise due to process operability requirements, existing site layout or safety considerations. Particularly in retrofit situations (i.e. when changes are made to an existing plant), the usefulness of these targets is thus limited. In this lecture I will discuss examples of this, and present some recent research that proposes new ways to better incorporate operability and implementation issues during early-stage targeting and design of industrial heat recovery projects.​<br /></span></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial"><br /></span></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial"><a href="https://chalmers.zoom.us/j/69871072532">The lecture is online​</a>. </span></div></div></div>https://www.chalmers.se/en/areas-of-advance/energy/calendar/Pages/Hydrogen--A-silver-bullet-in-the-energy-system.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/areas-of-advance/energy/calendar/Pages/Hydrogen--A-silver-bullet-in-the-energy-system.aspxHydrogen – A silver bullet in the energy system?<p></p><p>Welcome to a webinar organized by Chalmers Energy and Transport Areas of Advance. When: 4 November 2020, at 12:00-13:45.

Since then, the number of industrial applications has increased steadily. Today, fluidization is used for combustion, gasification, pyrolysis, heat transfer, catalysis and more. Fluidized-bed reactors have exiting properties which makes them interesting for new innovative applications. By adjusting bed material, fluidization gas and process parameters such as temperature and pressure a range of interesting phenomena can be realized. At Chalmers we have spend many years researching technologies that seeks to utilize these inherent opportunities, of which the chemical-looping combustion process for inherent CO2 capture is a prominent example. This lecture presents a brief overview over this larger effort and discuss successes, failures, conclusions and impact. Finally, an outlook for future work will be presented, taking recent the expected needs of a future sustainable energy system in consideration.</div> <div><br /></div> <div><span></span><span></span><div><a href="https://chalmers.zoom.us/j/69059116066">The lecture is online</a>, and for a limited number of attendees in lecture hall EA, <span style="background-color:initial"> </span><span style="background-color:initial"><font color="#5b97bf"><b>register here if you wish to attend</b></font></span><a href="https://choodle.portal.chalmers.se/ou7Ne49VHUrarQsd">​</a><span style="background-color:initial">. </span></div></div>https://www.chalmers.se/en/areas-of-advance/energy/calendar/Pages/he-2nd-International-Conference-on-Negative-CO2-Emissions.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/areas-of-advance/energy/calendar/Pages/he-2nd-International-Conference-on-Negative-CO2-Emissions.aspxPOSTPONED: The 2nd International Conference on Negative CO2 Emissions<p>Chalmers Student Union Building, Chalmers Campus Johanneberg</p><p>​The 2nd International Conference on Negative CO2 Emissions will be held May 18-21, 2021, at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden.
