EFE 2022 Energy Fuels Environment
The goal of the Conference is to raise awareness of interdisciplinary challenges in fuels and energy
The third edition of the International Conference Energy Fuels Environment (EFE 2022) will be held 20/09/2022–23/09/2022 in hybrid mode. The conference will be held at the AGH University of Science and Technology in Kraków, Poland.
The transformation of the fuel and energy sector, and its impact on the environment and human health, is a basic problem in the modern world. The direction of changes in this industry may lead to economic growth and an improvement in the quality of life of citizens but also raises concerns about reliability, energy supply prices and social security in the era of new technology development. Contemporary problems of fuel and energy economy and related environmental problems should be classified as interdisciplinary issues, possibly to be solved mainly on the international forum. New scientific issues, technological challenges and problems of the economy of fuel and energy processes are analyzed in terms of their impact on climate change, human health and the safety of the natural environment.
The goal of the second International Conference Energy Fuels Environment 2022 (EFE 2022), organized by AGH University of Science and Technology and Cracow Technology University (PK) is to raise awareness of interdisciplinary challenges in fuels and energy on the international forum, as well as environmental issues related to the identification of new pollutants and the development of monitoring methods.
The aim of the EFE 2022 conference is:
1.to emphasize the interdisciplinary nature of scientific research in energy, fuel technologies and monitoring of the natural environment;
2. to establish and strengthen contacts and exchange experiences on the international forum on the issues of commercial and distributed energy, hydrogen technologies and their importance for low-emission economy methods of energy storage and recovery, economics and energy management.
The key topics of EFE 2022 are the following:
