Workshop on Gasification Modelling, Luleå, Sweden, 21 November 2012

SFC logotypeBio4energy cmykThe Swedish Centre for Biomass Gasification (SFC) consists of three research nodes that focuses on three different gasification principles. Regardless of gasification principle there are certain aspects of the conversion of fuel particles and gas phase reactions that are the same. However, each gasification principle presents a unique set of challenges for the modelling researcher. This workshop is intended to bring together specialists and engineers with an interest in modelling and to create an environment for the sharing knowledge that hopefully will speed up the development of gasification models. The workshop has two parts, the first focusing on the microscopic details of fuel conversion and the gas phase reactions (sub models). The second targets the macroscopic behavior of the different reactor types (reactor models). The workshop will be made up of presentations and a discussion about the models and sub models.

Workshop dinner. All participants are invited to join a dinner on the evening before the workshop.
 
Agenda:

08:00–08:30   Introduction and presentation of participants
08:30–09:30   Modelling of fuel particles and gas phase
09:30–10:00   Coffee
10:00–12:00   Modelling of fuel particles and gas phase
12:00–13.00   Lunch
13:00–14:30   Reactor modelling
14:30–15:00   Coffee
15:00–16:30   Reactor modelling
16:30–17:00   Workshop summary and discussion of future work

Bioenergy 2012 - Research for a New Generation of Green Products and Chemicals, Piteå, Sweden, 14-15 November 2012

Bio4energy cmykSolander logotype JPEGBio4Energy and Solander Science Park will be co-hosting a Bioenergy 2012 conference at the annual Nolia Energy and Environmental Week. The conference will discuss international front line research on biorefinery and bioenergy made from forest-sourced raw materials or organic waste. 

Innovation and the commercialisation of research results will be a special focus of the Energy and Environmental Week which seeks to attract business leaders, industry representatives, policy makers, researchers and those interested in research and  innovation aimed  at developing tools and methods for conducting efficient and sustainable biorefinery. Registration will be available by mid September on the Nolia (conference organiser) website.
