Oct. 14, 2016 - The National Research Council of Canada (NRC) and CanmetENERGY are supporting the Industrial Application of Gas Turbines Committee (IAGT) in the delivery of a two-day workshop on the opportunities of using cleaner energy systems – specifically gas turbines – for the production of electricity on October 17 and 18 in Montreal. IAGT, formed in 1973 with the support of NRC, is a technical advisory group to Canadian industry and government.
NRC Bioenergy program experts will be sharing their knowledge and expertise in presentations over the two days of the workshop, and will be moderating a panel on Clean Gas Turbine Technology Opportunities. The panel provides an opportunity for industry, end users and experts to share their views.
Gas turbines in a wide range of sizes are fueled by a flexible combination of hydrogen-based natural gas, light oil or new bio-fuel opportunities. Recent technology successes have led to many benefits, including very low air pollutant emissions, good system efficiency and low GHG emissions, high onsite reliability for communities, and support for local renewable energy production.
Plan to join us on October 17 and 18 at the Sheraton Montreal Airport Hotel to learn more. The workshop will cover the basics of gas turbines and cogeneration systems, the most recent technological developments, the integration of gas turbines with renewable energy and technologies, as well as optimal integration within industrial processes. A plant tour of Siemens Energy’s facilities is also part of the program.
