Within the IEA Bioenergy Technology Collaboration ProgrammeTask 32 Biomass Combustion works on further expansion of the use of biomass combustion for heat and power generation. Task 32 puts special emphasis on small scale heating units and medium to large scale CHP plants as well as co-firing biomass with coal in traditional coal-fired boilers. This is done by generating and disseminating information on technical and on non-technical barriers and anticipated solutions.
