Gasification 2019 Conference

Brussels, Belgium

Our 8th Gasification conference will be taking place on the 13th and 14th of March in Brussels, Belgium.

Gasification offers advantages over competing technologies in the processing of a variety of feedstocks into a diverse range of desirable products with more value and potential applications than the raw material itself. This product flexibility as well as the versatility and efficiency of gasification, make it an attractive technology now and for the future.

Many countries and enterprises are focusing extensive programs on performing the research, development, and demonstration  necessary to maximise the potential for gasification in the future.  Our 8th Gasification conference will showcase the latest developments in the sector and provide key insights from senior executives in the industry to discuss the latest commercial and  technical developments, challenges and research breakthroughs throughout the entire gasification market.

Key Topics Include:

  • Drivers for the Gasification Industry - EU Regulations, Directives & Energy Demand: Future Forecast for Gasification Technology
  • Latest Gasification Breakthrough Technologies
  • Status of Demonstration Projects - Latest Project Updates
  • Key Products Derived from Gasification Process
  • Gasification-Based Cogeneration
  • Gasification Based Bio-chemicals & Bio-products
  • Research & Development in the Labs & Research
  • Gasification for Heat & Power
  • Waste Gasification: Status Updates & Recent Developments
  • Coal Gasification: 'Cleaning the Coal' Industry

Exclusive Site Visit
