Invitation to workshop


The reference group Energy Recovery invites you to the workshop "Practical vs. Academic approach to improving heat-to-power conversion"

This workshop will be arranged the day before HighEFF's Cross Sector Workshop; October 22nd, 09:00-1600 in Trondheim.

The overall goal of the workshop is to build knowledge together on how to improve industrial energy recovery systems in both theory and practice.

All HighEFF partners are very welcome to participate. The aim is to build knowledge of broad industrial applicability. However, the practical examples will largely be from the ferroalloy processes, as these currently operate Norway's only full scale systems for surplus-heat-to-power conversion.

Elkem and Finnfjord will present from their practical experience and hard realities of operating industrial ferroalloy furnace off-gas energy recovery systems. HighEFF researchers will contribute from their somewhat more naïve and unconstrainted viewpoints; improvement potentials, alternative technologies, novel ideas and concepts. Ample time for discussions is planned.

Registration of participation within October 18th is required to ensure suitable venue and lunch arrangements. Email Vidar Skjervold: and receive a Outlook meeting invitation and stay updated for further details and full agenda.
