Terminal for long distance transport of biomass
Workshops on concrete and specific issues will be a central part of World Bioenergy 2014. The workshops will be connected to study visits, whenever that is possible.
One example as illustration:
Is it possible to transport large amounts of solid biofuels by train? How should a terminal be organised? Where should chipping be done? At roadside or at the terminal?
Stockaryd terminal is located 60 kilometres south of Jönköping at a major railroad. The terminal is used both for timber, pulpwood and solid biofuels. The terminal was opened in 2008, and several hundred trains are loaded here every year. The study tour and workshop will be organised I cooperation with Skogforsk, the Swedish forestry research institute. At the study tour we will look at fuel handling and large scale chipping at the terminal.

We invite researchers and companies with relevant information on new solutions for logistics and fuel handling at terminals to send in abstracts and suggestions, and to sign up for the conference.

Other examples of workshops already in the pipeline:
How to run a biomass heat plant
Fossil fuel free farming
Recycling of wood ash, and treatment of contaminated ashes
Conversion of heat boilers in industry, from oil to pellets
Small-scale electricity production from biomass – which technologies work?
Safe pellets handling to avoid fire and explosions
Charcoal for steel production

Send in your abstracts and workshop suggestions by 1 December!

Please send suggestions for workshops and subjects to worldbioenergy@svebio.se, and abstracts here before 1 December 2013.
