The Flue Gas Cleaning Workshop, originally scheduled for May 6-7 in Dresden, has been postponed to September 30/October 1.

This year both the 18th workshop and the 100th anniversary of VGB PowerTech take place. The event offers a platform for networking and exchange of experience of experts.

The workshop covers a wide range of flue gas cleaning activities, especially with a view to the activities for meeting the future emission limits, which are defined in the BREF-LCP process.

Therefore, the workshop starts with comparing the BREF-LCP document implementation across a section of EU countries and the necessary process optimization. New university research results about particles analysis and modelling of spray nozzles as well as new aspects of FGD development will be presented. In this context, it is considered whether semi-dry FGD can be used with bio flue gas. Aspects of co-removal of NOx and SOx and SCR/SNCR techniques will be discussed.

Two presentations are about operation experiences in power plants and finally experience with measurement systems of sulfur in combination with SO3 and CO2 capture at a waste-to-energy plant will be given.
