Advanced Clean Coal Technologies

10 Units

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.
