Event description

Description



This event is a 2-day meeting at the Department of Forest Biomaterial and Technology of SLU in Umeå. This meeting will bring together researchers & industries, as well as authorities within different biomass handling fields. The public-private collaboration within the meeting allows for combining experience and knowledge of both sectors addressing jointly research and development in issues connected with the safe and reliable pre-treatment, storage, handling and feeding of particulate biomass materials, with particular reference to new sources and changing process conditions.

The aim of the meeting is to discuss current technologies & innovative ideas & techniques for biomass pre-treatment, storage, handling and safety that contributes to foster a sustainable biomass supply and build new value chains. In particular, the meeting programme will focus on the following topics:

  1. Densification: compaction technologies for thermally treated biomass and avoidance of dust formation in pellet production and handling chains

  2. Storage and handling: innovative silo and conveyor design to prevent blocked system, smart systems for equipment control

  3. Safe fire and explosion suppression: dust generation prevention systems, vent systems for explosion protection, safe silos

  4. Biomass combustion, gasification and pyrolysis


Lunch and coffee will be provided during two days of meeting.
