Symposium on Energy Use- Liquefied Natural Gas, Hydrogen and Waste Recycle Energy

A. Symposium on 10 March 2023:
China is targeting to achieve a carbon peak by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2060, while Hong Kong being the foremost internationalized city of China also vows to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. To achieve these challenging goals, researchers and technical experts are exploring various zero-carbon energy resources. In supporting these goals, the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) Hong Kong Branch is organising the Symposium on 10 March 2023 in Hong Kong, with an aim to provide a platform for the government, industries, and academia sectors in the Great Bay Area and beyond to share their view and industry best practices in the emerging technologies and applications in Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), Hydrogen (H2), and Waste Recycle Energy.

Who should attend:
Policymakers, engineers, consultants, and researchers, as well as practitioners and industrialists with interests in Engineering the Society to Achieve Carbon Zero with Clean Energy.

Date: 10 March 2023, Friday
Time: 09:00 - 17:00
Venue: Lecture Theater Library Extension 1 (LE1), The University of Hong Kong

B. Pre-Symposium Workshop on 9 March 2023:
Workshop Topic: Introduction to Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) with Gas Engineering 101
Today, most industrial process plants including power plants, waste incineration and landfill plants, sewerage treatment plants etc. involve the recovering, cracking down and production, transmission, storage and conditioning, and combusting fuel gases of different forms. It is essential to know about both physical and combustion characteristics of fuel gases and industrial gases, their safe handling & storage, their applications and safe, efficient combustion.
