About The Symposium

Please join us for the 2014 Supercritical CO2 Power Cycle Symposium taking place on September 9 - 10, 2014 at the Sheraton Station Square Hotel in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania USA. Register Now to attend the symposium or Click Here to see the call for papers.

Symposium Summary

The Supercritical CO2 Power Cycle Symposium is an academic workshop organized to advance supercritical Carbon Dioxide (CO2) power cycle technology. Researchers, industry partners, and end users meet to learn about advancements in the field; discuss priorities; and establish a critical path for technology development. The first symposium was held at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2007, the second was held at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 2009, and the third was held at the University of Colorado at Boulder.
 
Starting in 2011, attendees have online access to technical papers presented during the symposium and access to the Symposium LinkedIn Group. The goal is to facilitate peer-to-peer knowledge sharing and collaboration across organizational and company boundaries that will create a network of expertise and accelerate advancements in the field.

Technology Summary

Supercritical CO2 power cycles can benefit fossil, renewable, and advanced nuclear power plants. Carbon dioxide is an extremely efficient working fluid in its supercritical state. As a result, more electrical power can be produced per unit of fuel ultimately reducing operating costs, payback periods, and plant emissions.

Symposium Format

Keynote presentations will address big picture development priorities and critical path issues; technical sessions will address system concepts and development, system modeling and control, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, materials, turbomachinery, electrical generators, and testing; and there will be networking opportunities during breaks and meals.

Thank you for your interest in the
2014 Supercritical CO2 Power Cycle Symposium and we hope to see you there.
