International Biomass Conference & Expo is being held at the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta, Georgia held on April 16-18, 2018. BBI International expects up to 1,000 attendees and more than 120 exhibitors.
Biomass power is the use of biomass to generate electricity. These technologies include direct firing, cofiring, gasification, anaerobic digestion and other technologies. While many biomass power plants today use direct-fired systems, more advanced approaches—many including combined heat and power—are being deployed worldwide. In combined heat and power (CHP) systems, for example, a power plant's spent steam is also used for manufacturing processes and/or building heat, boosting the overall efficiency of the system.
