Biomass Combustion and Co-firing

Workshop on Increasing Biomass Cofiring percentages in existing power Plants, Geertruidenberg, October 21, 2008

Tuesday, 21 October 2008

ESSENT Amer power
plant, Geertruidenberg, Netherlands


Expert workshop: 

Increasing cofiring percentages
in existing coal fired power plants


Chairperson:
Edward Pfeiffer


organised
by
IEA Bioenergy Task 32


Aim:

The aim of this workshop
was to evaluate recent developments in biomass cofiring around the world
and how biomass cofiring shares can be expanded depending on power plant
configuration and fuel type.
