LONDON—The Rubber in Engineering Group of the IoM3 will run a webinar March 19 on elastomer use in sustainable energy generation.
Led by Julien Ramier and Alan Bickley, the afternoon technical discussion meeting will examine the technical challenges posed by low-carbon energy generation for elastomers.
Presentations will include:
- Ashley Johnson, Schlumberger Cambridge Research—Geothermal Energy: Why do we need it? How do we get it?;
- Professor Christopher Bowen, University of Bath—Elastomeric materials for energy and harvesting applications;
- Tom McKay, TTI Ltd.—Inflatable elastomer membrane structures for wave energy devices; and
- Shing Hon Wong, James Walker & Co Ltd.—Walkersele X-Gen: Seal Developments For Offshore Wind Energy,
The free event is part of an ARTIS-sponsored program, which will next feature a webinar on elastomers in infrastructure.
That event, on June 18, will focus on the use of elastomers in the public and private infrastructure and will aim to capture new materials, processes and applications utilizing elastomers in this field.
