Dr. Xiaobo Luo, a researcher from University of Hull, visited State Key Laboratory of Coal Combustion in Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST).
HUST is located in Wuhan, the capital city of Hubei Province. HUST is one of Top 10 universities in China. HUST has
a big campus with an area of over 460 hectares and 72% greenery coverage, which has earned it the honorary title of “University in the Forest”. During my visit, HUST just was holding a Lotus Festival. Varieties of lotuses were placed inside the campus, which was really refreshing to the heart and pleasing to the eye.
In this period, Dr. Xiaobo Luo had many discussions with the researchers, PhD and master students about biomass/waste plastic pyrolysis. Experiments arrangement towards model development of this process had been discussed. He visited their lab equipment and pilot plants for pyrolysis and gasification of biomass and waste plastic and observed the experiments. Xiaobo also visited HUST’s carbon capture demonstration plant and biomass pyrolytic polygeneration demonstration plant. He did a presentation with the title of ‘Multi-scale Modelling and Simulation (M&S) and Its Application in CCS and BE’.
