Impacts of Fuel Quality on Power Production

Don’t forget the important conference Impacts of Fuel Quality on Power Production. The conference will occur 19-23 September 2016 in Prague, Czech Republic.


Conference Focus

This conference will highlight solutions to the significant fuel-quality challenges facing power producers utilizing current power technologies such as fluidized bed, sub-critical boilers, incineration as well as newer technologies such as IGCC, PFBC, super- and ultrasuper-critical boilers, oxy-fuel systems, etc. These challenges include fuel preparation and blending, slagging, fouling, corrosion, sooting, ash disposal, catalyst poisoning, availability and capacity increases, and improved sensors and controls. The conference emphasizes end-results and application of fundamental information to minimize fuel quality impacts in power production. The conference will focus on traditional fuels, particularly traded coals, low grade and low rank coals and opportunity fuels such as biomass, tires, black liquor, waste sludge and pet coke. Fundamental studies, pilot-scale investigations, full-scale evaluations and computer simulation papers are encouraged.
