International Symposium on Innovative Materials for Processes in Energy Systems 2010 (IMPRES2010) – For Fuel Cells, Heat Pumps and Sorption Systems was held in Furama Riverfront Hotel, Singapore from November 29, to December 1, 2010. The first International Symposium on Innovative Materials for Processes in Energy Systems (IMPRES) was held in Kyoto in 2007 and after the successful meeting, the IMPRES2007 steering committee members agreed to hold the conference in every three years and this is the second IMPRES conference. This conference aims to bring workers focusing on different aspects of gas-solid reactions in energy conversion and promote an interchange of ideas across subjects.
This edited book is concerned with the applications of novel materials in the field of energy systems with special focus on the gas-solid reaction processes in various energy conversion systems. Materials for fuel cells, heat pumps, sorption systems and other energy conversion and storage devices will be discussed. Common concerns include material reactivity, heat and mass transfer characteristics, durability, stability under high-temperature and severe conditions and cost.
