Fostering EU Clean Energy transition in Lithuania, SUPEERA/PANTERA workshop
Date: 27 April 2023
Time: 9:00 – 17:00
Location: Lithuanian Academy of Science, Gedimino pr. 3, 01103 Vilnius, Lithuania
Lithuania is actively working towards the success of the energy transition objectives and implementation of declared policies for achieving the low carbon economy. Yet, together with other less involved countries it shows low participation rates in research and innovation (R&I) activities and the realisation of the European Union’s Strategic Energy Technology (SET) Plan Implementation Plans. As a consequence, and compared to more successful Member States it has received only a marginal contribution of EU R&I Horizon 2020’s budget.
In this context, SUPEERA and PANTERA are joining forces with the objective to enhance collaboration in R&I activities in Lithuania, facilitate knowledge exchange and showcase best practices of how international networking and cooperation between national stakeholders and key international associations and organisations can be beneficial for establishing long-lasting interactions and fostering joint R&I activities.
Therefore, this workshop will offer a detailed overview of the European policies, strategies, EU funding programmes and collaboration opportunities at the disposal to the research community of Lithuania with the aim to bringing them closer to the R&I activities of Europe and get active with the SET Plan process. Meanwhile, the invited experts and stakeholders will share their experience in the project implementation.
NB: The detailed agenda will be sent to all registrants in due time
The 2nd CERN Baltic Conference (CBC 2022) to be held in National Centre of Physical and Technological Sciences (FTMC) in Vilnius, Lithuania on October 10-12, 2022. It is an annual conference organised by the CERN Baltic Group (CBG), where location is rotated within CBG member countries and hosting institutions.
Lithuanian Energy Institute also takes part in CERN Baltic Group’s activities. On our behalf we invite researchers, engineers, students (of all levels), and industrial representatives as well as stakeholders of the Baltic states to participate in the event.
In the spirit of CBG principles (transparency, honesty, sharing and collaboration), the Conference has set the following objectives:
The Conference aims to gather the Baltic scientists and research institutions, and to help organizing activities towards the long-term mission, such as that of CERN and related collaborations/experiments.
The scientific and technical CERN Baltic Conference covers the full spectrum of CERN and related activities (e.g. research, engineering, computing, industrial, and policy).
Topics are related, but not limited to: Accelerator, Detector and other Advanced Technologies, High Energy Physics, Data Science and Computing, Nuclear Medicine. From physics to engineering, from fundamental science to industry. Topics will be logically linked to the CBG activities within the CERN collaborations, experiments and studies: such as CMS, CLIC, FCC, MEDICIS, AEGIS, CLOUD, and others.
CERN-related researchers, engineers, students (of all levels), and industrial representatives (incl. CERN Industrial Liaison Officers of EE, LT, and LV) as well as stakeholders of the Baltic states.
Expert speakers form CERN and CBG Member institutions will be invited to participate and to contribute to the each of the topics.

Dissertation title: Reduction of nitrogen and sulfur compound emissions in biofuel boilers using combined methods
Science area, field of science: Technological Sciences, Energetics and Power Engineering, T006
Defense of the dissertation: 2021-04-16, 10:00 a.m., Lithuanian Energy Institute (room – AK-330), Breslaujos st. 3, Kaunas, Lithuania.
Scientific Supervisor: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Kęstutis Buinevičius (Kaunas University of Technology, Technological Sciences, Energetics and Power Engineering, T006).

The doctoral dissertation defence will take place in hybrid mode. Link to the online conference call:
The doctoral dissertation is available on the internet and at the library of Kaunas University of Technology (K. Donelaičio g. 20, Kaunas).
The prevailing technologies for boiler flue gas desulphurisation and denitrification are selective. The combined impact on the reduction of overall emissions of biofuel reciprocating grate boilers has not been sufficiently studied. This dissertation is intended to determine the combined effects of primary and secondary measures on nitrogen and sulfur emissions. Experimental studies were carried out in industrial boilers (4 – 12 MW) and research stands (20 kW) of similar design and operating conditions, burning wood and waste of agricultural, industrial and animal origin. Selective non-catalytic reagents (NH3, (NH2)2CO), solid reagent (CaO), flue gas recirculation, excess air and combination of these measures on flue gas NO2, N2O, NH3, HCN, SO2, SO3 and H2S emissions were determined. Flue gas recirculation and insufficient excess air have been found to reduce NO, NO2, NH3, SO3 and H2S emissions but increase SO2, HCN and N2O emissions. These methods must therefore be combined with additional desulphurisation measures. Experimental measurements also showed that selective non-catalytic reagent ((NH2)2CO) reduces not only NO, NO2, but also SO2 and H2S concentrations in biofuel combustion products. The dissertation presents a methodology for the calculation of NOx and SO2 concentrations in flue gas based on the results of experimental research, which allows for the optimal selection of emission reduction measures.
at 10:00 (EET) on November 10 the FAIRsFAIR Roadshow will virtually visit Lithuania to offer a FAIR programme, ranging from practical tools to FAIR-supporting projects. The event is open to researchers, data support staff, data stewards, and data policy makers and it is organised in collaboration with Kaunas University of Technology, OpenAIRE National Open Access Desk (NOAD) and the Open Science Communities.
The event will be held in English.
The meeting link will be sent to the registered participants before the event.
