19 Feb 2018 - 24 Jun 2018

Description

Processing technologies and systems for production of hydrogen, syngas, liquid fuel as well as heat and power from various energy resources including traditional fossil fuels and renewable resources (such as biomass); energy related environmental issues and analysis; energy system optimisation; energy related electrochemical systems.

Processing technologies and systems for production of hydrogen, syngas, liquid fuel as well as heat and power from various energy resources including traditional fossil fuels and renewable resources (such as biomass); energy related environmental issues and analysis; energy system optimisation; energy related electrochemical systems.

Topics include:
• Hydrogen, syngas and liquid fuel from biomass and organic solid wastes (8L);
• System analysis and optimisation for biomass to liquid fuels (2L);
• Fuel cells and power storage (10L);
• Refining and processing of Gaseous and Liquid Fossil Fuels (10L).

Learning Outcomes

  • At the end of this course, the students are expected to:
  • Understand issues and potential opportunities in energy sector.
  • Understand the technologies and systems for production of hydrogen, syngas and liquid fuels from biomass and organic solid wastes.
  • Understand the technologies and systems for production of hydrogen, syngas, liquid fuels and energy from natural gas and oil as well as related CO2 emission issue.
  • Understand the technologies and systems of fuel cells and electricity storage.
    • University Graduate Attributes

      This course will provide students with an opportunity to develop the Graduate Attributes specified below:
