Åbo Akademi: Combustion chemistry, 5 ECTS. Intensive studies 29.10.–2.11.2019.

Apply before Oct 13, 2019

Language: English

Prerequisites: Knowledge of basic chemistry and chemical principles.

Intensive studies organised in Turku.

This course:

  • Introduces industrial scale combustion systems and the chemistry associated with the formation of main emission components
  • Introduces fundamental theoretical tools, including the use of expert software, for studying chemistry in combustion processes
  • Provides theoretical basis for working in academia or industry with chemical issues of combustion processes

After completing this course, the students are expected to be able to:

  • Define terms and concepts relevant to industrial combustion
  • Describe the basic principles of industrial combustion systems and the chemistry within them, including the formation of main emission components
  • Apply fundamental chemical theories for interpreting emissions from combustion processes
  • Analyse combustion-related problems using expert software by following given instructions

Åbo Akademi: Corrosion of metals (416520.0), 5 ECTS. 1.1.–15.3.2020.

Language: English

Prerequisites: The course is aimed for chemical engineering and chemistry students and requires knowledge in general chemistry.

Base metals belong to the most important materials used in different chemical plants and equipment. This course aims to introduce basic concepts needed to understand corrosion resistance and different methods to avoid corrosion in aqueous solutions.

Different corrosion types, passivation, polarisation and corrosion protection via material choice, design, anodic and cathodic protection, inorganic and organic coatings are discussed. Examples of corrosion case studies demonstrate further the subject.

After the course, the student:

  • can analyse and discuss potential factors which might have caused the observed corrosion case and also suggests possible solutions to avoid corrosion.
  • understands the typical corrosion metal of the most important metals in various environments.
  • understands corrosion mechanisms.
  • understands basic thermodynamic concepts and kinetics of corrosion reactions.

Åbo Akademi: Chemistry in energy technology, 5 ECTS. Intensive studies 9.–13.3.2020.

Apply before Feb 23, 2020

Language: English

Prerequisites: Knowledge of basic chemistry and chemical principles.

Intensive studies organised in Turku.

Materials and their performance play an important role in various energy technology related processes. This course aims to give a basic understanding of the chemistry behind ash related problems and trace metal emissions.

Students learn about high temperature properties and chemical as well as mechanical durability of metals and ceramic refractories used in typical environment of energy production via combustion of renewable and fossil fuels and waste demolition.

After completing this course, the students are expected to be able to:

  • Understand the challenges between different fuels when designing new combustion processes.
  • Define terms and concepts relevant to ash chemistry in combustion processes
  • In general terms explain high temperature corrosion mechanisms and explain the principles for material selection for industrial high temperature processes
  • Describe the basic principles of industrial combustion systems and the ash chemistry within them
  • Apply fundamental chemical theories for interpreting ash-related problems in combustion processes
  • Analyse ash-related problems using expert software by following given instructions
  • Use theoretical tools to interpret and estimate conditions for corrosion
