Biomass Combustion and Co-firing

Workshop on system perspectives in biomass combustion, Berlin, May, 2007

Monday, 7 May 2007

European Biomass
Conference, Conference Centre, Berlin


Expert workshop: 

Fuel storage, handling and
preparation and system analysis for biomass combustion technologies


Chairperson:
Jaap Koppejan


organised
by
IEA Bioenergy Task 32


Aim:

The aim of this workshop
was to evaluate what types of logistical chains are available for
different types of biomass and how most optimal combustion design is
influenced by the costs and environmental aspects of the logistical
chains for fuels.
