Workshop in Ponferrada, Spain

FLEXI BURN CFB Demonstration Project in FP7

Development of High-Efficiency Circulating Fluidized Bed Technology to Provide Flexible Air/Oxy Operation for a Power Plant with Carbon Capture and Storage

Time: Wednesday, February 6, 2013, 09.00 - 18.00

Place: Technology Development Centre for CO2 Capture, 24492 Cubillos del Sil - León (Spain)

Objective: Introduction of FLEXI BURN CFB project with its achievements and final results.

FLEXI BURN CFB project aims to develop and demonstrate a power plant concept based on the Circulating Fluidized Bed (CFB) technology combined with Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS).

Content: The workshop will provide an overview of the current status of CCS development by keynote speaker Stanley Santos (Project Manager, IEAGHG). The Introduction of FLEXI BURN CFB project is followed by the overview of the final results presented by Work Package Leaders (VTT, Foster Wheeler Energia Oy, CIUDEN, ENDESA and EDP).
