    CFB combustion then – now – tomorrow: Doosan Lentjes presents a journey through the technology at VGB Fluidised Bed Boiler Operator Workshop 2017

    40 years of circulating fluidized bed power plant technology: Doosan Lentjes reviews history, present status and future potentials of an innovative combustion technology at the VGB Fluidized Bed Boiler Operators Workshop on 22 May in Krakow, Poland. The event is organized as part of the 12th International Conference on Fluidized Bed Technology, CFB-12.

    May, 31, 1976, marked the day of the filing of the base patents for circulating fluidised bed (CFB) boiler technology for power plant applications. These developments were the response to increasing efforts to reduce the environmental impact of power plants. In contrast to conventional combustion processes such as PC systems, CFB boilers operate on a recirculation principle allowing optimum exchanges between gas and solids. This principle increases efficiency when it comes to emissions control, heat transfer and fuel burn-out while simultaneously allowing highest levels of fuel flexibility.

    Reinhard Knittel, Sales Director at Doosan Lentjes, gives the speech at the VGB Fluidised Bed Boiler Operator Workshop and comments: “The CFB combustion process has proven its efficiency in a range of plants around the world since the first base patents were released. To date, roughly 800 boilers with a total capacity of 50,000MWe are installed across the globe (excl. China). Considering the technology development over the decades, we saw a number of capacity milestones from initially close to 100MWe per unit to 300MWe up to 800MWe that are currently under development. Especially the application of these larger concepts for supercritical and ultra-supercritical steam conditions will have positive effects on net efficiencies of power plants – a critical success factor to shape a sustainable energy generation of tomorrow”, concludes Reinhard Knittel.

    CFB-12 is the twelfth conference in a series of conferences affecting CFB technology. Considered as an information platform, the event unites professionals from across the CFB environment.
