Elastomers in Power Generation

 

 

This event will specifically discuss and address state-of-the-art in the emerging sectors of flexible materials-based energy generators.

IOM3EG’s ATDM series is the main platform for the technical and scientific community in the UK to discuss the use of rubber and elastomers materials. Utilising elastomeric materials in energy generation will be of interest to a broad range of the IOM3 membership.

This hybrid seminar will focus on the use of elastomers and elastomeric-like materials for Generation of Clean and Green Energy. Flexible membrane-based energy harvesters from ambient motions (e.g. wave, tidal, water current, vibration or any other motions) are emerging technologies that demonstrated great potentials for generating low carbon renewable energy. The technologies could be game-changers to meet the Net Zero target in the energy sectors, particularly in the UK. A couple of SMEs and large-scale companies were already emerged in the last decade that deal with flexible energy generators made of rubber-like materials. However, the sectors have been facing challenges ranging from novel chemical formulations of rubber-like materials to innovative designs of novel flexible-energy harvesters. 

 

3 take-away benefits for participants attending this event:

1. Overview on the Emerging sector of flexible materials-based energy generators

2. Desired elastomeric properties for energy harvesting materials

3. Designs, experimental and computational challenges of elastomers-based energy generators

 

 

 

IOM3 Elastomer Group's Afternoon Technical Discussion Meeting (ATDM) is the main platform for the technical and scientific community in the UK to discuss the use of rubber and elastomers materials. Utilising elastomeric materials under these types of extreme condition will be of interest to a broad range of the IOM3 membership.
