Advanced Clean Coal Technologies
Aims to provide students with an overview of advanced clean coal technologies. The course will establish a fundamental appreciation of topics such as oxy-fuel combustion, chemical looping combustion, carbon capture and sequestration. Students enrolled in the Graduate Certificate Engineering Science and Master of Engineering Science will undertake this as a short course.

The purpose and objective of the course are to provide students with:
(a) an introduction to, thermodynamics, heat transfer, chemistry, combustion and reaction kinetics fundamentals of technologies such as oxy-fuel and chemical looping combustion. (b) an understanding of physical and chemical processes associated with carbon capture and sequestration. (c) To establish, at an advanced level, an appreciation of fuel technology, power generation, combustion and environmental implications of clean coal technologies.
* Reaction kinetics * Combustion chemistry * Flames * Power generation systems such as, gas-fired furnaces, premixed-charged engines, oil-fired furnaces, gas-turbines, direct injection engines, fixed-bed combustors, pulverised fuel combustors, and fluidised bed combustors
