About The Course

Circulating fluidised bed combustion (CFBC) is the predominant type of  fluidised bed combustion technology used for power generation. The first development work on CFBC began in Germany in the mid-1970s. This was followed by commercialisation in Sweden, Finland and the USA. The first use of the CFBC technology for power generation started in 1985 with the operation of a 90 MWe CFBC boiler in Duisburg (Germany). Since then, over 600 coal-based CFBC generating units have been installed worldwide. A 2012 survey by Platts identified a total global capacity of more than 46 GWe –which continues to rapidly expand. Power plants using CFBC technology have been operating in the USA, Europe and Japan since the 1980s-and can now be found throughout the world [especially in China and a wide range of emerging economies].Today, CFBC technology can be considered as a mature echnology for power generation/co-generation and industrial – sized applications and is commercially available from multiple suppliers.

Who Should Attend

  • The course commences with a detailed review of fluidisation processes.
  • It then proceeds with a thorough examination of the key issues affecting the development and operation of CFBC plants with case studies and operational experience being provided from a wide range of countries.
  • It should be an excellent opportunity for CFBC plant engineers and other staff to discuss the various operational aspects of CFBC plants particularly the key problems that plant operators regularly have to deal with.
  • Remedies and solutions to key technical problems will be examined in detail during the course [with appropriate power plant case studies].
