CONFERENCE HIGHLIGHTS

Theme: Power For Tomorrow

Domestic Keynote Speaker:  Brian Anderson, Laboratory Director, National Energy Technology Laboratory, U.S. Department of Energy, will speak on Monday morning, August 1, 2022.

International Keynote Speaker: Invited: Professor Fangqin Cheng, Vice President – Research, Shanxi University, CHINA, will address utilization of low-grade coal and coal combustion by-products on Tuesday morning August 2, 2022.

Technical SessionThe Southeast University in China (SEU) has conducted extensive research on solid waste combustion in fluidized beds. They have built the first circulating fluidized bed that purely burns MSW in China.
