10th International Freiberg Conference on IGCC & XtL Technologies

Date: 10 - 15 May 2020

Location: JW Marriott@TomorrowSquare, Shanghai. Organised by Institute of Energy Process Engineering and Chemical Engineering, the Institute of Clean Coal Technology and Synfuels China Technology Co.

The event provides a high-level discussion forum to facilitate the exchange of information and expertise between industry, scientific and political stakeholders along carbon value chains from extraction, processing/refining to conversion, utilisation and chemical recycling. Participants are expected to come from diverse fields and industrial branches ranging from researchers and specialists engaged in fundamental and applied R&D to industry experts from energy, natural resource, chemical and recycling sectors as well as equipment and technology providers/manufacturers.

The conference provides a platform where international participants will have the opportunity to engage in in-depth exchanges about alternative and innovative developments associated with carbon resources as well as challenges and possibilities for carbon intensive and dependent industries. Studies and new developments by researchers and technology developers as well as current or planned projects and operational experiences by plant operators related to closing the carbon cycle shall be presented. Topics for presentations include:

• Feedstock extension for chemical utilisation (lignite, high ash high melting coals, sewage sludge, plastic waste, ocean waste, biowaste, agricultural and animal waste …)
• Feedstock supply, homogenisation and preparation (drying, feeding, deashing)
• Waste treatment (collection, sorting, crushing, agglomeration, baling)
• Low temperature conversion processes (e.g. extraction, torrefaction and pyrolysis)
• Upgrading of low-temperature conversion products (e.g. tar reforming, tar upgrading, coke production)
• Feedstock conversion (e.g. characterisation, reaction kinetics, analytics of heterogeneous feedstock)
• Chemical conversion processes and technologies (solvolysis, pyrolysis, gasification/co-gasification, underground coal gasification, direct liquefaction)
• Synthesis gas treatment and synthesis technologies (CO2-based syntheses, direct syngas conversion)
• Carbon dioxide capture, storage and utilisation
