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

The 7th International Workshop on Cofiring Biomass with Coal

The National Energy Administration of China (NEA) has formally announced that it intends to establish a Coal Coupling Power Demonstration Programme, as part of the Clean Power Plan in China’s 13th Five Year Plan (2016-2020). The programme will promote the cofiring of coal with biomass (agricultural and forestry wastes especially straw) and sludge.

We organised this special cofiring workshop to bring together industry and other stakeholders to showcase and connect the best of international cofiring capability. We agreed with the NEA to cooperate with the Electric Power Planning and Engineering Institute of China (EPPEI) in running this event. The workshop considered how to enable the cofiring of coal with biomass in Chinese power plants. 

The workshop took place on 7 and 8 June 2017 in the Beijing Asia Hotel, China.

The price for this exclusive workshop was 350 British pounds.

Stands in the exhibition area of the workshop, were available at 2000 British pounds, which included two admission tickets to the workshop.
