I-ThERM project present at the UK Heat Transfer Conference,4-5 September 2017, Brunel University, London UK

I-ThERM project participated in the 15th UK Heat Transfer Conference 2017 (UKHTC2017), which took place during 4 – 5 September 2017, at Brunel University in London, UK.

The UK National Heat Transfer conference, organised under the aegis of the UK National Heat Transfer Committee, is the premier forum in the UK for the local and international heat transfer community to meet, disseminate ongoing work and discuss the latest advances in the Heat Transfer field. The audience included researchers from both academia and industry in the areas of heat transfer, fluid mechanics and thermodynamics. Additionally contributions on all aspects of these research areas, from fundamental and applied to novel experimental techniques and innovative applications were also present.

I-ThERM project was represented by the team from Brunel University which participate in the I-ThERM project. In addition to distributing the flyers related to the I-ThERM Workshop of the 24th of October at Brunel University London, during lunch breaks the delegates had the chance to visit the Centre for Sustainable Energy Use in Food Chains (CSEF), in which the supercritical CO2 demonstration facility (WP5) will be located. Hence, these laboratory tours have been further beneficial to outline scope and goals of the I-ThERM project to academicians and industry people.

I-ThERM 18 Month Project Meeting, 20-21 April 2017, Windsor, UK.

I-ThERM 18 Month Project Meeting, 20-21 April 2017, Windsor, UK. 

After being working together for 18 months, it was again time for the I-ThERM H2020 project partners to meet, this time in Windsor, UK, on 20-21 April 2017.

The 18M project meeting took place in parallel with the the International Conference on Sustainable Energy Use in Food Chains-ICSEF2017 which hosted a one day day Symposium on ‘Heat Recovery and Efficient Conversion and Utilisation of Waste Heat’, on 20 April 2017.

During the Symposium technical and technological aspects and advancements of the I-ThERM project were presented to the audience of the conference. ICSEF2017 gathered audience from different disciplines whose common interest is energy demand reduction in food chains. Given the major challenges now facing the food and energy sectors, this conference provided an ideal opportunity to discuss ways of addressing these challenges, network and meet experts in these areas.

On 21 April 2017, the I-ThERM project meeting took place were all the partners gathered together to present and discuss the project results achieved so far to the Work Packages. Additionally the comment of the Project Officer were discussed and the next steps of the several Work Packages were planned.
