Future Prospects of Gas Turbine Combustion Towards Carbon Neutral Society

In recent years, reducing emissions such as CO2 and NOx from gas turbines and industrial applications has become an urgent issue toward realizing a carbon-neutral society wherein greenhouse gas emissions are reduced to net-zero. Therefore, there is a strong need to develop and select optimum operating conditions for gas turbines to further improve their efficiency and reduce their emissions. In this panel discussion, future prospects of gas turbine combustion towards carbon-neutral society will be discussed, especially in terms of the utilization of carbon-free fuels. The panel discussion will be divided into two parts, namely “Part 1: Aircraft Gas Turbine” and “Part 2: Industrial Gas Turbine”, and the discussion specialized to each field will be held.
