Expperts 2009


Published on

With CO2 concerns so dominant in the public and political arena as well as the conventional pollutants of NOx and SOx, reducing emissions is an enormous task for power plant operators. Furthermore this responsibility provides colossal challenges which must be overcome. The advent of stringent European Directives must be adhered with otherwise power plants face the possibility of being shut down. How will the changing regulations affect power plants and what technologies can help meet these challenges?

Modern Power Systems Expperts 2009 conference being held on the 13-14 October 2009 in Berlin will bring together key authorities to provide answers to these and all the other topical questions. From clarifying the latest European Directives and implementing biomass co-firing to achieving a more efficient power plant, this conference will provide in depth analysis into solving the critical issues facing the industry today.

Expperts 2009 will provide delegates with a forum for cutting-edge emissions reduction information and the opportunity to network, benchmark and learn from top executives from all industry sectors.

  4. 4. SchWarZe PumPe SiTe viSiT: Coal has a future, carbon dioxide emissions don’t. This is the realisation that prompted Vattenfall to launch a research project on CO2 capture in 2001 and since then, Vattenfall has pioneered this green technology. Within this project the CCS technology implemented is very concrete: In 2006, construction began for the pilot plant in Schwarze Pumpe. On 29th May, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and the CEO of Vattenfall’s Swedish parent company Vattenfall AB, Lars G. Josefsson attended the ground-breaking ceremony for the innovative project. On September 9th 2008 Vattenfall inaugurated the world’s first Oxyfuel pilot plant on an industrial scale and including all components of the CCS-chain, on its Schwarze Pumpe site south of Berlin. The pilot plant will be in operation for 10 years, including a first test programme of three years. More than 90% of the CO2 produced in the combustion process in the pilot plant will be captured and further processed for transport and underground storage. Don’t miss our landmark site visit to the world’s first Oxyfuel pilot plant at Schwarze Pumpe. By attending this unique site visit you will gain a deeper understanding of the problems and lessons learned by Vattenfall as they built the first coal fired plant in the world to capture and store its own CO2 emissions. Schwarze Pumpe site visit timetable: 14:00 Arrival at Schwarze Pumpe Power Station ● Welcome at the visitor's centre of the power station ● Report about Vattenfall's activities in the field of CO2-capture - conference room 15:00 Group 1: ● Oxyfuel plant tour Group 2: ● Short overview of the power station 15:30 Group 2: ● Oxyfuel plant tour Group 1: ● Short overview of the power station 16:00 Farewell
