IEACCC - EPPEI joint workshop on
Cofiring Biomass with Coal
7 & 8 June 2017, Beijing, China.      

IEACCC/EPPEI joint workshop on Cofiring Biomass with Coal

China has recently committed to cofiring biomass and sludge in its own coal power plants. This workshop is the first opportunity for experts to come together in Beijing to showcase the best international practice and to connect with a promising new market.

On 7-8 June 2017 we are running the 7th Workshop on Cofiring Biomass with Coal in Beijing, China, with the Electric Power Planning and Engineering Institute of China (EPPEI).

The Chinese programme, announced by the National Energy Administration (NEA) will include a series of large-scale demonstration projects on coal-fired power plants to assess various cofiring techniques. Cofiring biomass with coal can reduce CO2 emissions. The NEA cofiring plan includes biomass in the form of agricultural and forestry byproducts, and sludge. This is a great opportunity for international organisations with cofiring expertise to meet and cooperate with willing Chinese partners.

The workshop will promote the use of biomass in coal-fired power plants in China and will provide a forum for discussion and facilitate exchange of expertise. Two days of technical sessions and keynotes from leading figures in the industry will cover all aspects of cofiring technologies. Topics will include:

  • technical issues of converting power plants
  • the biomass resources available
  • relavant policies to support cofiring
  • regulations and standards
  • financing opportunities and
  • monitoring of biomass utilisation. 

There will be plenty of opportunities for networking.

We welcome people and presentations from any part of the world. Please secure your place at the workshop by registering here and submit an abstract if you would like to present your work.

There is an exhibition area as part of the workshop. If you would like to take the opportunity to showcase your innovative products here, contact Ms Xing Zhang, to reserve an exhibition stand. 

The provisional programme is available here.
