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



The workshop was held at the 5 star Beijing Asia Hotel. The workshops took place on the 3rd floor in the spacious and elegant Asia Conference Hall. This large, modern hotel is located on the east 2nd ring road, close to the embassy zone and the Beijing Worker’s Stadium.


Workshop participants who wished to stay at the Beijing Asia Hotel, could get a special rate.

Participants could also choose from a wide range of other hotels in Beijing.


The hotel is 25 km from the Beijing International Airport, 30 minutes by taxi. 
You can take the Airport Express to Dongzhimen station (final stop), then change to subway line 2 to Dongsishitiao station (1 stop). The hotel is 300 metres away from the subway station.
Alternatively, take the airport shuttle bus - Beijing Railway Station line, get off at Dongsishitiao stop, and walk 3 minutes to the hotel.


If you need a visa to visit China, please download this form, fill in with your details along with a copy of your passport with your photo on and email it to Xing Zhang, as soon as you have registered and paid your ticket. Please also include address and full postcode in the email.

This information is needed in order to get a visa application letter issued by EPPEI from China. It takes about two weeks for the invitation letter to be posted from China. Please make an early appointment with the China Visa Application Service Centre in your country, since the visa issue process can take a fair amount of time (usually at least two weeks for the London centre).


The working languages for the workshop are English and Chinese Mandarin. Spontaneous translation facilities were available.
