Say hello to good biomass

Say hello to good biomass

The use of biomass fuels for transportation and for electricity generation is increasing in many developed countries as a means of avoiding carbon dioxide emissions (EIA, 08/2020). To share knowledge on this important topic, B&W is excited to participate at the 14th International Biomass Conference & Expo on March 16-17.  This year’s virtual conference highlights all things biomass and features a presentation by B&W Subject Matter Expert and Advisory Engineer Jim DeSellem, Unlocking the Combustion Question for a Waste Stream.”
If you’re registered for the conference, be sure to tune in to Jim’s presentation on Wednesday at approximately 2:15pm CST for achieving successful and sustainable conversion of cellulosic ethanol waste to usable energy.

Which ESP design comes out on top?
