The focus of the Salon Bois Energie 2019 is energy from wood and waste wood for the industrial and municipal sectors.
Woodfuels from forest residues or « end of life » wood waste or industrial process wood waste are the primary feedstocks for industrial and municipal energy generation in the form of heat, heat and power and potentially methane (through the methanation of syngas) as well as the production of high calorific value wood fuels such as black pellets or bio oil.
A broad programme for the two days including a rich international conference programme with simultaneous translation, international business meetings, study tours, the innovation competition etc … and three parallel complimentary events for biomass energy and water treatment make Bois Energie the unmissable meeting point for 2019 !
FEEDSTOCK : multiple woody resources such as wood chips, end of life waste wood, wood industry by-products, can generate energy in a range of energy forms via the application of different conversion technologies.
PROCESS : Different processes including wood boilers, torrefaction, pyrolysis, pyrogasification, methanation... apply increasing temperatures in order to extract the energy content in the desired form, either directly or as a fuel.
OUTPUTS : a large range of outputs are possible from the different conversion processes in direct energy or as a solid, liquid or gaseous fuel, eg black pellets (coal substitute), biochar, bio-oil (heating, chp), syngas, methane (methanation of syngas), jet fuel.
ENERGY RECOVERY : the energy recovery opportunities include heat (or steam), chp as well as methane which can be injected directly into the gas network or utilised for transport (a fuel termed biongv - bio natural gas for vehicles), aviation.
