TU/e Energy Day on Renewable Fuels and Chemicals In the future energy system, renewable fuels and chemicals are envisaged to fulfill the need for seasonal storage of energy, to provide clean dense energy carriers for transport and mobility, and to supply (chemical) industries with sustainable feedstocks. With Power-to-X technologies, CO2, H2O, and/or N2 ‘waste’ can be upgraded to ‘circular’ fuels and chemicals (X) in processes powered by renewable electricity (P).

There have been major developments recently in the understanding of the very edge of tokamak plasmas. New experimental analyses, coupled with new heuristic theoretical understanding, has led to a simple and accurate model for the width of the narrow region of plasma that is scraped off the plasma edge and ultimately strikes material surfaces, the Scrape Off Layer or SOL. Furthermore, the model predicts instability at the edge, due to the strong pressure gradient in the SOL, at just the point in edge density where good plasma confinement is experimentally found to be lost.
