The International Symposium on Innovative Materials for Processes in Energy Systems 2010 (IMPRES2010) takes place from 29 November to 1 December in Singapore. The conference is concerned with the application of novel materials in the field of energy systems with special focus on the gas-solid reaction processes in various energy conversion systems. Materials for fuel cells, heat pumps, sorption systems and other energy conversion and storage devices will be discussed that concerns among others the solar chiller manufacturers and suppliers.
Common concerns include material reactivity, heat and mass transfer characteristics, durability, stability under high-temperature and severe conditions and cost. This conference aims to bring workers focusing on different aspects of gas-solid reactions in energy conversion and promote an interchange of ideas across subjects.
The symposium welcomes participants of professionals dedicated to theories, experiments, simulations, on the development of functional materials for fuel cells, heat pumps, sorption systems and their applied aspects. Attendees will include consulting engineers, design engineers, contractors, architects, manufacturers, researchers and academics.
The IMPRES held in every three years and this is the second international conference after the successful completion of IMPRES2007 at Kyoto, Japan.
