Site visits will go to the Shin Onoda Power Station and the Kitakyushu Laboratory of Nippon Steel Engineering.
Shin Onoda Power Station
The Shin Onoda Power Plant is located in Sanyo-Onoda, Yamaguchi Prefecture and consists of two 500 MW supercritical units. It started trial cofiring biomass with coal in 2007 and has been cofiring with the support from Feed-in Tariffs (FiT) scheme since.
The Kitakyushu Laboratory engages in research on clean coal technologies, such as reforming, pyrolysis, gasification, catalyst utilisation and improving low-rank coal qualities. The laboratory also works on pretreatment, saccharification and fermentation processes for cellulosic biomass.
The site visits will take place on Tuesday 25th February, followed by a welcome reception. Site visits are always very popular at our workshops, so please note that places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
