Biomass Combustion and Co-firing

Workshop on recent developments in small scale combustion devices, Paris, France, October 2005

14th
EuropeanConference and Exhibition on Biomass for Energy, Industry and
Climate Protection

Workshop
3: 

Recent
developments in small scale combustion devices

Chairpersons:
Jaap Koppejan, Thomas Nussbaumer

Driven by requests for lower emission limits (particularly pm10)
and competition for increasingly reliable, efficient and cost
effective combustion devices in a growing market, the technical and
environmental performance of small scale biomass combustion devices
is still improving. This is true for both domestic woodstoves,
pellet and wood chip fired boilers.

This workshop presented some of the latest advances in combustion
modelling tools, furnace design, combustion control systems, and
flue gas cleaning systems to obtain high environmental performance
and reliability for small scale combustion applications at minimum
costs.
