Scientific Description
Mission and objectives
The Centre is a scientific and technological initiative aimed at support of sustainable development of energy and fuel sector in Poland, including innovative technologies for effective and environment-friendly utilization of coals. Main activities of the proposed RI are: 1.1. production, cleaning and pretreatment of a synthetic gas, hydrogen and synthetic fuels, carbon dioxide management; 1.2. increase of efficiency in production of electricity and heat; 1.3. integration between systems of energy production and polygeneration of energy carrier, taking into consideration fuel flexibility in integrated combined technology; 1.4. R&D in hydrogen economy;1.5. R&D in nuclear power technology; 1.6. advanced modeling of processes in energy technology and carbochemistry; 1.7. sustainable environmental protection in power and fuel industries, Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS); 1.8. development and application of advanced materials in power generation systems.
