CEURER 2013


"Advances in energy conversion, waste utilization and renewable energy – CEURER 2013”
• Objective: To present and discuss aspects related to the new paradigms of energy conversion, waste utilization and renewable energy sources, through lectures by prominent researchers on these themes from Brazil and worldwide. The seminar will also allow the establishment of collaborative relationships between the participants and the discussion of possible joint projects.
• Rationale: In recent years are appearing new developments and technologies in the themes of energy conversion, waste utilization and renewable energy sources, which can be defined as new paradigms. Some authors refer to this phenomenon as energy re-evolution or third industrial revolution. It is important to create a forum for discussion of advances in these topics, trends and the study of art of new technologies.
Moreover the CEURER 2013 forms part of commemorative activities by the 15 years since the creation of the research group NEST - Excellence Group in Thermal Power and Distributed Generation, and the 100th anniversary of the creation of UNIFEI - Federal University of Itajubá. The NEST in its 15 years of activity has developed dozens of R&D projects, with funding from FAPEMIG, CNPq, CAPES and energy companies such as: CEMIG, CENPES, AES, CPFL, Tractebel Energia, Bandeirantes Energy and others. It is worth emphasize the fact that the R&D project 001 of Cemig, was the first project of NEST, and which allowed to create the basis of current laboratories and projects. The NEST / IEM / UNIFEI is recognized nationally and internationally for his research the themes of gasification of biomass, distributed generation, exergoeconomics, life cycle analysis of biofuels, cogeneration and process integration. Moreover the UNIFEI since its creation has been established as a national reference in the energy sector.
NEST Researchers has published several books on the theme of energy conversion, waste utilization and renewable energy sources, including:
•   Biofuels, Lora E.E.S, e Venturini, O., (org). Interciência, 2012, v2, 1158p.
•   Biomass for Energy, Cortez, L.A.B, Lora E.E.S, Olivares, E. (org) Unicamp publishing house, 2009
•   Lora, E.E.S., Haddad, J., Distributed Generation, Interciência publishing house, 2006, 240p.
•   Lora, E.E.S., Nascimento, M.A.R. (org) Thermoelectric generation: planning, design and operation, Interciência 2004, 1249 p.
It is intended CEURER Seminar to become a frequent event to be carried out regulary always in Itajubá, in order to consolidate it into the circuit of international events.
