2nd International Conference on Biomass and Waste Combustion

The Conference will focus mainly on the technical aspects of biomass and waste combustion including the sub-themes fuel preparation and handling, combustion processes, ash handling and emissions. The main goal is to present technological innovations that will be commercialised in the near future. The Conference will focus on technologies for both retrofitting existing and application in new, WtE and BtE plants.and emissions.

Important questions are; How to

  • increase the electrical efficiency of WtE plants
  • increase the electrical efficiency of biomass combustion plants
  • increase the lifetime of heat exchanger components at existing steam temperatures
  • lower the fuel costs for biomass combustion plants
