PhD candidate Rubén Mocholí Montañés, Department of Energy and Process Engineering, performed testing at Technology Center Mongstad (TCM) in July 2017. TCM, located 60 km outside Bergen, is the world’s largest test center for CO2 capture! Why is this testing important? The future European energy system will have a large
PhD candidate Ailo Aasen was awarded the prize for best poster at the conference, Thermodynamics 2017, in Edinburgh, Scotland. This is impressive, as he started his PhD only eight months ago!
I have travelled to Pittsburgh to learn how I can use the simulation results most effectively to reduce the volume and weight of these heat exchangers.
For the first time, a major European research infrastructure project is being led by a country from outside the EU. Trondheim has now become the EU capital of carbon management research, and we have no qualms about emitting just a few grammes of sparkling CO2 in celebration. Starting in June 2017, more than 50 laboratories in five European countries will be coordinated from Trondheim.
There are a number of available low-carbon technologies to generate electricity. But are they really better than fossil fuels and nuclear power?
During loading/offloading and shipping there is a risk of spills, and such LNG spills have been shown to cause a special kind of explosive and dangerous accident called Rapid Phase Transition (RPT). However, the explosion does not always occur and nobody can clearly predict if and when it will happen. This mystery is the core motivation for my project.
Did you remember to turn off the lights before leaving home? Did you cut your shower short this morning? While these issues are important in decreasing your carbon footprint, I argue that how you spend money is significantly more impactful.
The overall goal of the System Simulation course is to give the students exercise in model, program, simulate and analyze dynamical problems where multiple engineering fields are present.
The energy challenge is a global problem that demands global solutions. A partnership between NTNU and Shanghai Jiao Tong University in China that began in 2010 is an excellent example of exactly the kind of global cooperation the world needs to address this challenging problem.
