Share Article

Global experts in waste recovery and the Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) will converge on Belfast later this year for a high level workshop.

Hosted by Queen’s University Belfast and supported by Invest NI through CASE (Centre for Advanced Sustainable Energy), the annual Engine ORC Consortium 2016 Workshop (EORCC) is an open forum for technical sharing and learning about mobile and stationary ORC systems.

The three day workshop, which will take place at Riddel Hall in Belfast between September 14th and 16th, 2016, is designed to provide those working in the ORC field with a platform to explore issues of common interest, share successful practices and experiences, debate new concepts with a view to increasing the level of our collaboration and collective impact.

Belfast has been selected as the location for this year’s event due to the pioneering work of Queen’s University Belfast and industry partners such as Wrightbus and AgriAD in the development of highly innovative technologies for the sustainable energy sector. Delegates will have the opportunity to visit an anaerobic digestion plant while in Northern Ireland.

Abstracts are currently being sought in the following technical areas:

-Working Fluids: Needs, Properties, Characterization
-Heat Exchanger Technologies: Evaporators/Boilers, Condensers, Recuperators
-System Modeling: Tools, Approaches
-System Controls: Requirements, Diagnostics, Approaches
-Expander Technologies: New Expander Technologies, Market Needs
-Testing: Requirements, Approaches, Best Practices
-WHR Application: Light-Duty, Heavy-Duty (Super Truck, No Waste), Stationary, Marine Vessels

The EORCC Workshop 2016 will combine a number of keynote addresses from industry speakers and leading academics, with presentations and discussion panels on:

-Controls: Dynamic Strategies, Load Shedding, Thermal Inertia
-Expanders: Design, Application, Performance (Dynamic & Positive Displacement

The deadline for receipt of abstracts is June 30th, 2016.

The event is open to anyone from the automotive or stationary engine industries, as well as academics in the mechanical and chemical engineering disciplines. Delegate registration fees are £350 + VAT to attend the three day event. This fee does not include accommodation or evening meals. An early bird rate of £300 + VAT is available until July 31st, 2016.
