Workshop on the Intersection of Advanced Manufacturing and Clean Coal and Carbon Capture Technologies

  • Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center, Hemisphere Room A Washington DC (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Haresh Malkani, CTO, has been invited to participate in this workshop.  The workshop on the Intersection of Advanced Manufacturing and Clean coal and Carbon Capture Technologies will focus on developing the coal plant of the future.

Emerging Advanced Manufacturing technologies will create the coal plant of the future. These plants will respond to the need to provide secure, stable, and reliable power. To achieve this end, it is necessary to transform how coal technologies are designed and manufactured. Smart manufacturing will incorporate big data and information systems to provide the cornerstone for innovative and disruptive technologies to create coal-fired power plants capable of flexible operations; using next-gen components to improve efficiency and reduce emissions; providing resilient power to Americans; that may be small compared to today’s conventional utility scale coal. They will truly be coal plants of the 21st century.

The program will begin with opening remarks from Assistant Secretary for Fossil Energy, Steven Winberg, followed by a short keynote from Dr. Lalit Chordia, CEO & Founder of Thar Process, Inc. The remainder of the event will consist of discussions, including a lightning round with participants sharing their diverse ideas and perspectives, and two breakout sessions focused on specific topics within the workshop theme.

Guests will include subject matter experts from industry, academia, national labs, and the federal government, all with experience in advanced manufacturing, clean coal/clean energy systems, or both.

John Dyck, CESMII CEO speaks to the key role lawmakers can play in developing smart technology for manufacturing“Lawmakers at all levels can play a key role in the development of smart technology for manufacturing,” said John Dyck, CEO of the Clean Energy Smart Manufacturing Innovation Institute on Hill.TV's "Boundless," which aired Wednesday, December 5, 2018.

"Federal and state lawmakers can play a key role in incubating technologies that are vital in smart manufacturing," said CEO John Dyck. "They can play a role in educating the workforce, educating manufacturers and taking some of the objections and the fears away. They can play a role in generating trust or creating trust around the idea of moving data beyond the four walls of the plant to a cloud environment."

"They can play a role in enduring low friction for both the data flow itself, but also the bureaucracy and the way data is monetized across the supply chain," he said.

"Boundless" is a Hill.TV documentary series focused on technological advancements.
