Programme - Oral Sessions

Energy & Environment
The talk sessions of energy and the environment group aim at the development of technology collaboration on energy and the environment between Europe and Korea. Recently Korea drives energy transition from fossil fuels and nuclear into renewable energy sources. In addition, Korea has suffered from environmental problems such as fine particulates and resource inefficiency. As Europe has led energy transition and sustainable development, the collaboration between Korea and Europe can benefit to each other. Therefore this group facilitates diverse collaboration opportunities on energy and the environment by sharing their knowledge, insight and ideas. In the talk sessions, delegates will discuss the key global issues, core trends and collaboration opportunities in the field of energy and the environment with experts and key persons from diverse sectors including industry, government, local authorities, research institutions and academia. As one of the typical interdisciplinary subjects, energy and the environment group holds interdisciplinary sessions at EKC2018 in collaboration with Appropriate Technology Group, Material Science Technology Group, Built Environment Group and Nuclear Energy Group as follows: [EE1] Decarbonization, Decentralization, and Devolution in Future Energy Ecosystem [EE2] Moving toward Sustainability: Innovating Wastewater Treatment for Bioenergy and Value Added Products (Joint Session with IDAT2) [EE3 & EE4] Workshop for Korea-Europe Collaboration on Energy R&D [EE5] Europe-Korea Collaboration on Environmental Research toward Industry 4.0 [EE6] The Present and Future of Sustainable Smart City (Joint Session with BE2) [EE7] Nuclear Waste Disposal (Joint Session with NE3) [MST4] Solar Energy Materials In the poster presentation, specific topics on energy and the environment are presented focusing on each presenter's recent researches and works.

Synopsis
Energy transition is worldwide trend. Belatedly, Korean government is also trying to transfrom its traditional energy system into more clean, safe, sustainable and customer-oriented system. Setting aside denuclearization issues, key questions for energy transtion are how to smoothly reduce coal generation volume and how to successfullly integrate a number of distributed renewable energy sources. In order to find optimal approach for those two questions, we have to focus on following three keywords: decarbonization, decentralization, and devolution. In this session, those three keywords would be addressed in depth by speakers and panels in various discipline. This session will take place in the following order: - Introduction: 11:00~11:05 - Speakers' presentation: 11:05~11:45 - Panel discussion: 11:45~12:15 - Floor discussion:12:15~12:40 Please note that this session will use Korean as an official language to deal with political context delicately and enrich discussion time.

Synopsis
A transit of a traditional sewage treatment to comprehensive biorefinery complexes is ongoing, linking biogas from carbon sources, bio-fertiliser production after biogas, aquatic plant/algae cultivation as alternative N,P removal, and production of animal feed, bioenergy from aquatic plants/algae, etc. Likewise, in wastewater treatment from municipalities, industry and livestock the recent challenges lie in the interdisciplinary aims.In the overall treatment and bio-refining stream of wastewater, a holistic understanding of upstream and downstream is often missing, and this furthermore presents a hindrance to an innovative value chain system. A new biorefinery approach with alternative treatments may extend treatment options. Moreover, knowledge of advanced wastewater treatment technologies has a potential to apply pretreatment of biomass biogas production and biogas cleaning/upgrading, etc. Talks in this section will be valuable to provide an environmental solution for developing countries where environmental problems, e.g., water and GHG emissions, generated by untreated wastewater, are common. Therefore this section will assemble all the fragmented stakeholders i.e., from the area of wastewater treatment, biogas and greenhouse gas emissions. The session is expected to be a platform for the first assembly of Korea- Europe experts within the area of environmental biotechnology.

Synopsis
The European Council agreed on a new 2030 energy plan to reduce 40% greenhouse gas emissions compared to 1990 levels, increase the share of renewable energy to at least 27% of consumption. Recently, Korean Government finalized energy plan to boost renewable energy plan. The aim is to generate 20% of electricity from renewable energy source with natural gas supplying 18.8%, coal 36.1%, and nuclear 23.9% by 2030. Especially, in order to achieve 20% electricity from renewable energy, 48.7GW renewable energy plant should be newly built. Most of them will be provided by wind and solar. At the same time the uses of coal, gas, and nuclear will be reduced. Reducing the greenhouse gas emissions and increasing the share of renewable energy are very challenged tasks. It can be achieved though the energy R&D. In this session, we will discuss possible collaborations between Korea and Europe on Energy R&D in order to boost the energy research and to meet to goals. This session is divided by two sub sessions. For the first session, ideas to boost energy R&D collaborations, on-going R&D collaboration cases and further opportunities will be presented by research institutes, industries, universities and quasi-government organizations from 16:00 to 17:40.

Synopsis
Radioactive wastes ranging from low and intermediate level of radioactivity to spent nuclear fuel should be safely disposed to ensure permanent isolation from the human environment. For this many countries choose to dispose of the wastes in deep underground, i.e. geological disposal. However, disposal of radioactive wastes poses complex challenges where social, technical, and political issues are all present. Good balance in all these disciplines is necessary for a success. Looking back on the history of several failures in site selection processes in Korea, it becomes clear that transparency and public participation are the key factors for success. This is also same in many European countries. In this session, we invite people from different countries and different fields, e.g. geosciences and social science and public policy, and exchange ideas and experiences. Especially, we will discuss how the management and disposal of nuclear wastes have been conducted, and how they have managed the repository site selection processes. The objectives of the sesssion are to promote the discussion between the panels and the participants, and to learn the state-of-the-art methods for solving the social-technical-political challenges in this topic.
