2011 World Coal Gen Conference

The Roadmap to 100% Thermal Efficiency and Zero
2011.5.17-19, Beijing, P.R. China

The world coal generation industry has been, for long, in
search of new methods that lead to further improved thermal
efficiency and reduced emissions. Today, many technological
roadmaps have appeared and presented new hopes for getting
closer to this target, which cover wide areas such as
combustion techniques, coal gasification, ultra supercritical
steam condition technologies as well as flue gas treatment,
water management, new materials and the way to optimize
plant operation … As the 18th Global Energy Dialogue event,
2011 World Coal Gen Conference: The Roadmap to 100%
Thermal Efficiency and Zero Emission will discuss these
technology frontiers via following forums:

Forum 1: World Coal-fired Power Generation Prospects 2011 -
Forum 2: Coal Pretreatments - Gasification vs. PC
Forum 3: Project Practice with Latest Coal Pretreatment
Forum 4: Higher Efficient Combustion Techniques and System
Forum 5: Project Practice with Latest Combustion Techniques
Forum 6: Flue Gas Treatment and Ash Handling
Forum 7: CO2 Emissions Control in Coal Power Plant
Forum 8: Advanced Water & Steam Technologies
Forum 9: Designing Ultra Supercritical Coal Generation Units
Forum 10: Material & Engineering for Next Generation Power
Forum 11: Power Plant Operation and Maintenance
