8th Workshop on cofiring biomass with coal

Cofiring 8    11 – 13 September 2018

Presentations from Cofiring 8 are available on the programme page.

Our 8th Workshop on Cofiring Biomass with Coal was held at the Admiral Hotel in Copenhagen, Denmark, on the 11-13 September 2018, with sponsorship from COWI.

The workshop started on Tuesday 11 with a visit to a local power plant, after which there was a welcome reception. This was followed by two days of technical sessions and keynotes from leading figures in the industry. Our event offered an excellent opportunity for delegates to mix with other people from government agencies, regulators, utilities, consultants, equipment suppliers and academia.

Topics addressed:

Cofiring 8 covered all topical issues on cofiring biomass with coal, and papers were invited on any aspect of the subject.

As China, India and South Africa are keen to expand their cofiring, we especially welcome knowledge transfer to help them use farm and forestry wastes rather than wood pellets, as well as supportive policies from a developing country perspective. Large scale demonstration projects of cofiring in coal-fired power plants are always well received at our workshops.

We limit the number of spaces for attendees, in order to facilitate open discussion and maximise networking opportunities. Places are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Our previous workshops in this series have been very popular and places have sold out quickly. Early registration is strongly advised to avoid disappointment.
