LUBMAT is a common initiative between TEKNIKER and JOST Institute for lubrication and tribology which realized that even though there were numerous international congresses dealing with the scientific approach for lubrication and wear, there were not any specific industrially focused. LUBMAT intends to address the industrial public without losing sight of the academic and scientific vision. LUBMAT is a well-established event that is in its 6th edition. Contributions are expected on all aspects of these three main topics:

  • Lubricants and lubrication management.
  • Tribology.
  • Condition monitoring.

WG 2: Materials for Energy

Chair: John Oakey (Cranfield University)

Under construction !

Scope and objective of this WG

This Working Group deals with:

  • materials for power generation (fossil and renewable): e.g. novel materials for next generation powerplants, high temperature and corrosion resistant materials for vessels and heat exchangers; lightweight, high temperature-resistant and wear-resistant materials, high-performance materials for fuel cells, new advanced materials for windmill propellers and gears and for other power generation sources, e.g. hydro and geothermal; novel materials  for photovoltaics, renewable materials for biofuels and bioproducts; advanced materials for steam engines and stirling motors

  • materials for energy transmission, distribution and storage: e.g. new materials for high pressure pipelines, new superconducting materials, materials with tailored thermal and electrical properties

  • materials for energy conservation: new tribological materials for energy conservation, materials for hydrogen storage, materials for new generation batteries.
