Organised by the IOP Combustion Group
More than 90% of world’s total primary energy supply is from combustion technologies and hence their role cannot be understated for future energy supply and security. Of course, combustion of fossil fuel is to be replaced with fuels having potentials for net-zero carbon emission. There are many possibilities for this but each one of them comes with its own challenges, advantages and disadvantages. Their comparative analyses are key to identify a meaningful sustainable and stable solution for net-zero carbon energy and surely, this needs collaborative efforts across multiple disciplines of physics, chemistry, engineering, environment and earth science, and economics. The two talks in this session will highlight some of these aspects to promote a good debate among the participants in the hope that this would help to identify pragmatic solutions for net-zero carbon energy.
