This Week #MScCFAFE students have visited the EKOSPALARNIA Waste Incineration Plant in Krakow. This plant allows to process 220 thousand tons of municipal waste during the year. Approximately 65,000 MWh of electricity and 280,000 MWh of heat are produced as a result of the combustion. The energy obtained by way of the thermal transformation process is largely organic. Overall, it was such a remarkable visit to be informed about such technology.
#MScCFAFE students have visited today the Guido Coal Mine. This mine is 320m beneath the surface, with a second level representing a 19th-century mine which makes it the deepest visiting mine in Europe.
During the study visit, students have had the opprotunity not only to see how the coal mine works, but they have worked for a couple of hours as a real miners. In addition, they could see the impact of environmental consequences of mining activity as well as being informed about the connections with other parts of economy.
The previous week 6 students from MSc CFAFE participated in an international student camp in Graz where for 5 days they were solving biomass and bioenergy issues that exist in Austria. Included in the camp was a visit to a bioenergy plant which produces biodiesel from used cooking oil and also has the first in the world self sustainable greenhouse for which the needed heat is provided by the solar panels installed on the top of it. The participants also had the chance to visit a waste inceneration plant and see how Austria, which has one of the highest recycling rates in EU, deals with their waste.

Today we had our first meeing in Krakow and our brainstorming session was very fruitful.

EPAE 2017(Environmental Protection and Energy Conference) is organized every year, by MSc Clean Fossil and Alternative Fuels Energy students, for young scientists and researchers and gives them an opportunity to present their work in front of other participants, professors and professionals from the industry. The subject area of the conference covers wide problems connected with creation and protection of natural environment and power engineering including particularly their innovative aspects.
This is how #MScCFAFE students relax after exams. For some of us it was the first time to experience ice skating and although at the beginning it seemed quite hard, with the right team mates learning becomes much easier. 😊
Dzień dobry! I am Katerina, 1st year student of MSc Clean Fossil and Alternative Fuels Energy at @agh.krakow. In the next two months I will be glad to share my KIC Innoenergy experience from the cold city of Krakow. ❄ / @cate.rin
