TOTeM 37, Innovative and Advanced Co-firing Technologies was held at Wroclaw University of Technology on September 22nd and 23rd. The meeting was organised by the IFRF which has a dissemination role in the DEBCO project, and was attended by over 40 participants.
Featuring speakers from partner organisations in both the DEBCO (Demonstration of large scale Biomass Co-firing and supply chain integration) and RECOMBIO (Recovered Fuels combined with Biomass) projects, the TOTeM also featured keynote reviews on Co-firing in EU power plants, and on modelling of co-firing systems. The meeting was chaired by IFRF Director Leo Tognotti.
DEBCO brings together some fundamental studies of coal-biomass co-firing with full scale demonstrations of the technique on power plants in Belgium and Italy. Further information is available at the DEBCO website which is managed by the IFRF.
The RECOMBIO project is concerned with development and demonstrations of innovative approaches to the high efficient co-utilisation of low quality biomasses and Solid Recovered Fuels (SRF) produced from municipal solid waste (MSW).
The IFRF would like to acknowledge Professor Halina Pawlak-Kruczek and her colleagues at Wroclaw University of Technology for their excellent work as event organisers and hosts. Our thanks also to Julian Krawczynski and his team who facilitated the site visit to PCC Rokita SA.
In the coming weeks, IFRF will publish PDFs of the main presentations, as well as the summary of the meeting. Watch MNM for details.
