The so-called Blue Battery is an innovative product that stores electricity solely using water and table salt. This invention aims to revolutionize the energy storage world and to foster the growth of renewable energy technologies around the globe. Last couple of decades has witnessed extensive embracing of energy efficient, cost effective and miniaturization technologies in a variety of products and processes of energy conservation and pollution reduction. Typical applications can be found in heat exchangers, gas turbine cooling, fuel cell, solar energy utilization, electronics cooling, biofuels technologies etc.
This special session aims to provide an international forum for the exchange of latest technical information, for the dissemination of high-quality research results and for the presentation of recent advances on waste heat recovery and utilization problems in energy conservation and pollution reduction areas. This issue will be of particular value and interest to researchers, scientists, engineers and practitioners who are working in waste heat recovery and utilization fields of energy conservation and pollution reduction.

Ahmed , K. Limiting the energy footprint of industrial processes and systems is beneficial not only to the need to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions but also to face the instability in the energy prices and to improve the reliability of supply. Economic assessment is a key issue for the innovation technologies to be applied in demonstration cases or in real industrial cases. The session aims at bringing together research advances and technological progresses on reducing the energy requirements and pollutant emissions of industrial process and systems.
The focus of the session is on advanced concepts and designs to reduce energy consumption, to exploit new ways for heat recovery and cogeneration opportunities and to improve the environmental footprint. Abstract may also increase the knowledge of innovation technologies by proposing mathematical approaches, numerical modeling and experimental techniques to foster the application of the proposed solutions for the enhancement of the energy efficiency of industrial processes and systems.
The sea represents a huge resource for renewable energy Blue Energy - BE. Although the growth of offshore renewable energy technologies has so far been relatively slow compared to those onshore, it is anticipated that in the future BE will substantially contribute to the energy demands of coastal and insular areas, at the same time protecting and conserving the marine environment.
The Blue Growth Strategy proposed by the Commission in emphasized that harnessing the economic potential of BE in a sustainable manner represents a key policy area for the EU, which requires the involvement of the widest possible range of stakeholders in order to optimize capacity building and to achieve the necessary critical mass.
Moreover, exploiting this indigenous resource would help reduce the EU dependence on fossil fuels for electricity generation, and enhance energy security. In particular, islands and remote coastal regions can especially benefit from BE development, as it would provide a viable alternative to expensive and heavily polluting fossil fuelled plants, and contribute to their energy self-sufficiency. The exploitation of Blue Energy clearly opens new frontiers in the maritime sector, by creating synergies with long established traditional activities, yet opening the door to knowledge-driven innovation.
It offers the opportunity to pool costs and boost several connected economic sectors. Upgrade of energy efficiency in existing buildings is an essential objective of every energy policy. Cultural Heritage buildings consist of a vast and widespread amount of the entire building stock in many urban realities.
At the same time, the goals of sustainable development and energy efficiency may become an opportunity to strengthen and to make more specific the objectives of architectural and landscape preservation. The renovation of these buildings requires targeted technical solutions and each new intervention, including the one related to energy efficiency, has to maintain the cultural and natural values and even more achieve suitable landscape integration within the urban context.
Therefore, defining renovation strategies aimed at improving the energy performances of the protected cultural and natural heritage is genuinely complicated. The objective of this special session is to identify and address critical aspects related to this subject, collecting significant experiences for enabling advancement to the knowledge in the field. That includes different retrofit experiences in different historical building typology or in different preserved context, like small islands or particular historical centres or villages, to efficiently manage natural resources about territorial vocations and landscape compatibility.
