Webinar: Simulation in Biomass and Biofuel
March 27, 2008
1:30 pm EST

Biomass is increasingly being used as a fuel in electric power generation, particularly in combination with coal furnaces. While this is a renewable energy source, air pollution problems such as nitrous oxides remain, and combustion simulation is a critical component of biomass furnace design and retrofit. Additionally, technology to derive liquid fuel from biomass is receiving attention and significant venture capital. Significant challenges are faced in scaling biological processes from laboratory to pilot to industrial levels. Unit process simulation can eliminate much of the guess work, time, and expense involved in scale-up. Who should attend? Engineers and engineering managers working on the technology development and use of biofuels, including both combustion and biological process optimization.
