Hyderabad: Former ISRO chairman G Madhavan Nair, who inaugurated the 8th Asia Pacific Conference on Combustion (ASPACC) in Hyderabad, said that hydrogen fuel will be the new age fuel that will power the aerospace, automobile and energy sectors.

The ASPACC, organised by Combustion Institute-Indian Section (CIIS) is a three-day conference for mutual exchange of information among the global scientific community who are involved in fundamental & applications oriented combustion research. Of the 400 delegates participating in the conference, 160 are from Asia-Pacific countries like China, Korea, Taiwan, Australia and  Japan.

Recognising the need to develop low-cost technologies for use of high-efficiency new-age fuels to meet the energy needs of the world, he said that a lot of research would have to be undertaken to develop and master the use of hydrogen fuel before it could be put into mass use.

Stating that fossil fuels (such as coal, petroleum and natural gas)cannot be replenished and concerns of environmental pollution will put curbs on the use of such fuels, Madhavan Nair said that the need of the hour was to develop alternative resources of renewable energy such as solar (photovoltaic), wind and bio-waste.

Chairman of CIIS and Scientific Adviser to Defence Minister,V.K. Saraswat said that both IISc Bangalore and IIT Chennai will take up conceptual, fundamental and applied research in new combustion technologies.He said that the 500-MW Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle power plant coming up at Tiruchi will use the ultra critical thermal technology developed by BHEL and NTPC.
