|Coal Drying and Handling Seminar / Mini-Expo|
|As part of BCIA's seminar series, we are holding a one-day seminar and exhibition on coal drying and handling on Monday, 17 June in Melbourne. |
|This one day event will bring together experts to showcase state-of-the-art coal drying, from research through to commercial operation, together with an ‘expo’, where companies working in the area can interact with participants.|
Coal drying, and the ability to handle and work with dewatered coal is a necessary precursor to any future low-emissions brown coal developments.
The aim of the seminar is bring together interested parties, build knowledge in what is now possible for brown coal drying, and to encourage further discussion on the next steps required for expansion of environmentally responsible, low-emissions brown coal utilisation.
Speakers will discuss the state-of-the-art in drying technologies, processes and engineering services to support technology deployment, as well as the latest research.
The invited audience will include coal license holders, coal development companies, technologists, financiers, government representatives and researchers.
|This will be a chance to see what is possible, and to network with a qualified audience of interested parties, including industry, finance, government and the research community.|
The Coal Drying seminar is planned as the first in a series of similar events, with future events focussing on coal upgrading to value-added products (eg via gasification and/or pyrolysis), improving efficiency of coal utilisation, and carbon capture and storage technologies.
|Attendance at this event is free and by invitation only. If you are interested in this event and have not received an invitation, please forward your interest to BCIA Membership Support Manager, Kirstyn Krausz at |
|firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration. |
|Coming Soon .... gasification short course|
|One potential future for Australian brown coal resources is as a chemical feedstock for a range of gas, liquid and fine chemical products, and a potential route to such products is through gasification.|
We have been working with the Energy & Environmental Research Center (EERC) based in North Dakota, a world leader in gasification research, to deliver a one-day short course on gasification technologies which will be held later in the year.
The course will cover theory, commercial technologies, end products and cost analysis aspects.
Attendance is free to BCIA member representatives (limited to one participant per associate member and two participants per full member organisation). A course fee, commensurate with similar courses, would be payable by non-member attendees.
Stay tuned for more information…. If you haven’t already registered your interest for this short course, please email Kirstyn Krausz, BCIA Membership Support Manager at email@example.com to ensure you are on our database to receive further information.
