This 3-day course will provide you with a comprehensive overview of the status and developments in energy delivery from biomass combustion. The focus will mainly be on biomass for electricity and heat. This course looks at fuel supply options and the emissions and plant performance implications. The use of biomass for energy production has several associated technical, environmental and socioeconomic challenges. Some of these, particularly the technical challenges, will be addressed in this course.

Biomass is a key element in government plans to increase renewable energy sources and reduce greenhouse gases. Bioenergy has environmental and economic impacts, and is unique as a renewable fuel since it can contribute to all three energy sectors – electricity, heat and transport fuels. 

In the UK, imported white wood pellets are a major fuel, but energy crops, such as short rotation willow coppice and miscanthus as well as forestry residues, agricultural residue and waste woods, all find use in the production of electricity and heat.

How will I benefit?
The course will give you a sound understanding of the fundamentals and practicalities of:

  • the basics of solid biomass combustion
  • dedicated biomass installations
  • solid biomass for electricity generation
  • biogas and landfill gas for process heat and power generation
  • sustainability of biomass supply chains 

Who Should Attend?

This course will be of particular interest to you if you’re:

  • a process engineer or chemist new to the bioenergy field
  • a regional developer wanting to obtain a technical perspective on bioenergy
  • an energy and environmental manager interested in using bioenergy
  • a process heat system designer interested in biomass as a heat source.
