2nd Public SCARLET Workshop – Programme

The 2nd Public SCARLET Workshop was held on 23 March 2017 in Darmstadt presented the results of the second phase of the project focusing on the scale-up and engineering of a 20 MWth pilot plant including CFD simulations of the up-scaled pilot plant reactors. Integration scenarios of CCL retrofits at various full-scale reference power (hard coal, lignite) and industrial (cement, steel) plants were assessed evaluating thermodynamics, economics and environmental impact. In addition, experimental results from CCL pilot testing in a 1 MWth pilot plant with more than 1,200 hours stable operation were presented.
