Objective: Introduction of fluidized bed combustion technology and fuel
characterization services at VTT with particular emphasis on low grade coals
and mining residues.
Content: The workshop will provide an overview of the current status of
fluidized bed combustion technology by keynote speakers. VTT’s fuel
characterization service will be introduced with case examples and online test
trials with oil shale, low grade coal or mining residue in a pilot scale
circulating fluidized bed facility. From the tests realistic information of
the fuel combustion behavior is obtained for designing high performance power
plant operating with such fuels. Fuel characterization tests can secure the
investment in terms of high efficiency, low emissions and high plant
availability with low costs. In addition to that the tests provide facts
needed in early phase of the investment e.g. environmental permits and public
acceptance, planning of by-products utilization etc.
1st day includes introduction of fluidized bed combustion technology
and its latest achievements.
2nd day you can participate in the fuel characterization tests at VTT
pilot scale CFB combustor. You can follow online the tests that include
demonstration of low quality fuel combustion, fuel switch / changes in fuel
quality and optimization of the emissions.
In addition to that You can meet leading boiler manufactures on site.
