Description

CFB-9


is the ninth conference in a series which started 1985 in Halifax/Canada. CFB-9 addresses both the fundamental and applied aspects of circulating fluidized beds and fluidized bed systems. A particular characteristic of this conference is the balanced participation of experts from industry and academia. The conference will be held in conjunction with


THE INTERNATIONAL VGB WORKSHOP „OPERATING EXPERIENCE WITH FLUIDISED BED FIRING SYSTEMS“


This workshop is the fourth in a series which started 2002 in Cologne/Germany. Organized by VGB PowerTech – the Germany based international association of power plant operators - this workshop provides a forum for the exchange of operating experiences with large-scale fluidized bed combustion systems

SCOPE OF THE CONFERENCE


The program will include plenary lectures on new developments and emerging applications, results of original research and development, reports of industrial and operating experience, workshops and discussions on issues of current interest and research needs. Subjects will include:

  • dynamics of gas/solids flow

  • computational fluid mechanics

  • heat and mass transfer

  • fine particle systems and nanoparticle fluidization

  • agglomeration, granulation, coating and other particle formulation processes

  • processes for new materials and other novel applications

  • FCC and other catalytic processes

  • metallurgical processes

  • combustion, pyrolysis and gasification of coal, biomass and waste

  • handling, usage and disposal of CFB-ashes and by-products

  • pollution control

  • process synthesis and modelling of fluidized bed systems

  • process design and scale-up

  • measurement and instrumentation

  • equipment development

  • experience in plant operation

  • economic analysis
