Title: Green Aviation and Electric Propulsion: Present and Future (14:30-15:00)

Today, aviation industry plays an increasingly important role in serving human production and life, promoting economic development and social progress. However, aircraft noise, particulate matter emissions and carbon dioxide greenhouse gas effect also bring serious pollution to the world. At present, the aviation industry emits more than 900 million tons of carbon dioxide every year, and it is estimated that the emissions will more than triple by 2050. Green aviation technology has become the main driving force leading the change, and low-carbon has become the inevitable requirement and trend of future aviation. This report focuses on high efficiency aviation electric propulsion technology, introduces the current development status of Green Aviation and electric propulsion technology, and prospects the development trend of key technologies of green powered aircraft.

Prof. Yanwei Ma

Prof. Yanwei Ma is the head of the Department of New Superconducting and Energy Materials in IEECAS. He has an outstanding expertise in the field of superconducting wires and tapes, and has published more than 300 papers in SCI ranked journals so far. He is the editorial-board member of journals such as Supercond. Sci. Technol., Physica C and Sci. Rep.. He has been invited to give 62 plenary or invited presentations in international academic conferences such as ASC, EUCAS, ISS, Vortex and ICMC. Since the discovery of iron-based superconductors (IBS) in 2008, his group was the first to fabricate the iron-based superconducting wires by using the powder-in-tube method. Since then, he has been contributing innovative ideas (and publications) in improving transport critical current density Jc of IBS wires. Due to the original and pioneer work, Prof. Ma was invited to write the first review article on IBS wires for Supercond. Sci. Technol. in 2012. In recent years, he has made many significant contributions in high-performance IBS wires and their practical development, including the first high-performance multifilamentary wire in 2013, realizing the practical level Jc of 105 A/ cm2 at 4.2 K and 10 T in 2014, the first 100-meter class wire in 2016 and the first iron-based superconducting pancake coil in 2019. These advances represent significant breakthrough work in the development of iron-based superconductor technology, and strongly promoted the applications of iron-based superconductors. The contributions of Prof. Ma are highly regarded in superconductor research community. In 2019, the European Society for Applied Superconductivity (ESAS) announced that the 2019 ESAS Award for Excellence in Applied Superconductivity is awarded to Prof. Ma for his “outstanding contributions to the development of superconductive wires with potentially very high impact for applications”.

Title: New Battery Chemistries and Materials Issues (16:30-17:00)

Hybrid anion- and cation-redox (HACR) cathodes that combine the redox capacities of transition-metal cations and oxygen/sulfur anions [1] provide new opportunities for rechargeable batteries. High-voltage electrolytes and coatings [2] reduce the stress-corrosion cracking (SCC) of electrodes and the depletion of liquid electrolytes, to prolong the cycle life. New developments in Lithium-metal batteries with mixed ionic-electronic conductor (MIEC) porous interlayers and ion-electron insulator (IEI) binders will be discussed [3]. Finally, the challenges with “renewable wastes” will be introduced, and microwave based treatments will be discussed [4].
