Please join us for the 2011 Supercritical CO2
Power Cycle Symposium taking place on May 24 - 25, 2011 at the University of Colorado in Boulder at the foot of the beautiful Rocky Mountains. Register Now
to take advantage of the Early Bird Rate.
Abstracts are also being accepted. Individuals with abstracts that have been approved by the symposium committee are eligible to purchase their ticket at a discounted rate. Abstracts must be submitted by February 11, 2011.
Symposium SummaryThe Supercritical CO2 Power Cycle Symposium is an academic workshop organized to advance supercritical Carbon Dioxide (CO2) power cycle technology. Every two years 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 and the second was held at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 2009.
Starting in 2011, attendees will 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. Registration includes Lunch on both days at CU Boulder's new Center for Community and a Western Style Barbecue Dinner on Tuesday evening.
Technology SummarySupercritical 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 FormatKeynote 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 2011 Supercritical CO2 Power Cycle Symposium and we hope to see you there.
