Biomass Fuelled Power Generation with CO2 Capture
Friday 24 May 2013
The Møller Centre, Cambridge
Thank you to all our speakers and attendees for making the conference such a success. This page includes the list of attendees, copies of all the presentations and links to some photos taken at the event.
The ‘Biomass Fuelled Power Generation with CO2 capture’ was the theme for the Spring meeting held on the 24th May 2013, organised by the British Section of the Combustion Institute and the Institute of Physics. This event was co-hosted at Møller Centre by the Computational Modelling Group at the University of Cambridge and cmcl innovations. It focused on the scientific development and techno-economic issues related to realisation of biomass (both co-fired and dedicated) based power generation through combustion, gasification and pyrolysis, with or without the various pre-, post-and oxy-combustion CO2 technologies.

This conference focused on the scientific developments and techno-economic issues related to realisation of biomass (both co-fired and dedicated) based power generation through combustion, gasification and pyrolysis, with or without the various pre-, post- and oxy-combustion CO2 capture technologies. It was targeted at industrial researchers, process engineers, technical managers, and the academic community interested in carbon-negative power generation.
