How Turbomachinery Reliability Enables Cost-Effective Hydrogen Liquefaction
9 November 2022

Sponsor: Atlas Copco

The upsurge in interest in hydrogen comes on the back of its exciting potential as a carbon-free energy carrier in mobility and power applications. Historically, hydrogen has been used in refining, chemical processing, steel industries, and ammonia production. Today, the growing momentum for clean fuel and energy has led to enormous opportunities for turbomachinery within the hydrogen supply chain.

Hydrogen liquefaction is one of the few preferred methods to store and transport pure hydrogen. As countries across the world step up efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions and achieve commitments to net zero by 2050, the demand for hydrogen liquefiers is rising.

Join experts from Atlas Copco Gas and Process and Plug Power as they share insights on LH2 demand, hydrogen liquefaction and reliable turbomachinery design for these demanding processes.

Carbon Removal at Scale – Direct Air Capture with Dynamic Process Modeling
18 October 2022

Sponsor: AspenTech

As global industries continue to make strides in emission reductions, additional measures—like permanent carbon dioxide (CO2) removal—must be taken in parallel to achieve net zero. Innovations like Direct Air Capture (DAC) are poised to play a key role, using a mechanical system to remove CO2 directly from the air.

For over a decade, Carbon Engineering (CE) has pioneered a liquid-sorbent-based DAC solution optimized for scale. Using dynamic process modeling software from AspenTech®, engineers at CE have been able to study a highly integrated process, leading to adjustment and modification of the system for improved operability and controllability of this technology on a commercial scale.

Join experts from CE as they share insights on:

  • The role that carbon removal tools, including DAC, can play in achieving net zero
  • CE’s scalable approach to DAC and use cases for the captured atmospheric CO2
  • How today, with its partners, CE is working to deploy large-scale, commercial DAC facilities in multiple markets around the globe
  • How AspenTech solutions help support the innovation, scale-up and commercialization of CE’S DAC solutions
  • Modeling dynamic behavior of DAC process in response to environmental variations
  • Minimizing operating costs, maximizing CO2 capture rate by developing new controls and operation strategies
  • Evaluating the effect of new designs on KPIs and operation of the highly integrated DAC process

Axens solutions to energy transition towards Sustainable Aviation Fuel
4 October 2022

Sponsor: Axens

In a world taking steps to decrease the GHG emissions and lower the environmental impact of transportation, Sustainable Aviation Fuels currently accounts for 0.1% of global jet fuel needs. Government authorities, Refining companies, and the Aviation industry are collectively exploring the different technology pathways to substitute fossil-based Jet fuel with renewable and sustainable bio-based jet fuel. The ambitious target set by the authorities requires combining different technologies for every available feedstock around the world. Indeed, a single solution is not expected to fulfill the future demand for bio-jet.

In order to ensure a smooth energy transition, Axens is pleased to present various technology pathways for Bio-Jet production describing their benefits, technical advantages, and impact on carbon footprint.

Energy Transition is a Journey: Do you know where you stand and where to go?
27 September 2022

Sponsor: GE Digital

There is no doubt the progress of Energy Transition will rely on data and software to support the operational knowledge and excellence of downstream organizations.  There is a lot of information about achieving decarbonization goals, transitioning to renewables, and moving towards net-zero.  Although this is important, it is key to understand what your organization has in place today that can make an immediate impact on these bigger trends.  It is even more important to acknowledge the Energy Transition is a people-driven process—as much as a software one.

Hear how organizations like yours can leverage Asset Performance Management (APM) for their Energy Transition journey:

  • Identify the level of Energy Transition maturity in your organization
  •  Learn about APM processes and solutions you can leverage today to start your journey
  •  Build a vision for your organization’s transition to a lower carbon world
