  • "Pathways to clean and green Hydrogen" by Dr Roger Cracknell, Shell Research
  • "Some aspects of removing CO2 when gasifying coal in the ZECA process" by Dr John Dennis, Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Cambridge
  • "Chemical looping - theory and practical experience" by Prof Tobias Proell, Vienna University of Technology
  • "Oxyfuels" by Prof. Alan Williams, University of Leeds.
  • "Burning velocities and combustion characteristics of hydrogen-rich syngases" by Professor Barrie Moss, School of Engineering, Cranfield University.
  • "Some laboratory experiments on chemical looping" by Dr Stuart Scott, Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge.
  • "The production of hydrogen from coal in the ZECA concept" by Dr Nigel Paterson, Department of Chemical Engineering, Imperial College.
