Our SO WHAT consortium partner the University of Birmingham participated in the online Rankine Conference 2020 with the presentation of two papers that included some of the findings and work of the SO WHAT Project:
- Organic Rankine cycles combined with thermochemical heat transformers to enhance the power output from waste heat.
- Latent heat and thermochemical storage as enablers for waste heat-to-power and heat-upgrade: a general approach.
The first presentation took place on July 28, and it was carried out by Giovanni Manente, while the second one happened on July 30 and it was presented by Adriano Sciacovelli.
Both talks mentioned the preliminary findings of the SO WHAT Project and the expected impacts of the work ahead.
The IIR International Conference Rankine 2020 – Applications of Cooling, Heating and Power Generation, was an interactive online event held over 5 days. Delegates explored research and developments in the closely related fields of power cycles, working fluids and refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump (RACHP) applications. They took away insights into new opportunities to deliver efficient, sustainable and environmentally friendly solutions.
