GOAL OF THE CONFERENCE
Circulating fluidized bed (CFB) technology is booming in the context of the energy transition toward carbon neutrality. The goal of the International Conference on Circulating Fluidized Bed Boom (CFBB) is to offer a non-profit platform for all parties to exchange ideas, information, and experiences about CFB technology to fulfill the demand for communication, cooperation, and collaboration between academia and industry.
Topics of The 5th International Conference on Circulating Fluidized Bed Boom (CFBB05) will include not only CFB-related technologies, such as combustor and reactor design, hydrodynamics of gas-solid fluidization, and combustion and gasification in CFB, but also related hot topics in energy and engineering, such as CCUS, energy storage, and biomass and alternative fuel.

Welcome to join us to the 5th International Conference on Circulating Fluidized Bed Boom (CFBB05). Circulating fluidized bed (CFB) technology is booming in the context of the energy transition toward carbon neutrality. So, in CFBB05, we have invited experts with great presentations on not only CFB-related technologies but also related hot topics in energy and engineering, such as CCUS, energy storage, and biomass and alternative fuel. I wish all the guests and participants in this conference, both physically and virtually will enjoy the conference.
For future coal combustion under even increased environmental protection conditions, CFBB in combination with low temperature heat utilization may reach in urban and industrial applications heat recoveries of around 90%! It replaces high valued oil and gas combustion in heating systems as proven process technique and reduces CO2 emission considerably! Beside coal, it may additionally burn carbon containing residues. Fine grained ashes burned at low CFB temperatures may be leached to recover valuable constituents or using the ash as cement component. Storage of raw coal helps to guarantee short to medium time heat storage for overcoming power breakdown of wind or solar power by weather conditions! CFBB05 will certainly create quite a number of valuable ideas in this broad field and contribute to high efficiency power and heat recovery of coal and carbon containing residues! I wish the CFBB05 conference a successful and beneficial event for all the colleagues in July!
At present, climate change is the keyword. In Germany, regenerative energies mean solar and wind power. More complicated solutions like CO2 capture and chemical looping concepts are not even discussed. From my view, what is needed is a discussion of new electricity generating systems including, of course, CFB involving solutions. Costs of implementation and operation of CCS concepts need to be studied. Risk analysis of CO2 storage is another point. People are not aware of the current practice of CO2 storage for enhanced oil recovery. Chemical looping research should include cost saving measures. For example, the pressure drop in a chemical looping system is a direct cost factor. The engineer should work on the minimization of this cost.
Fluidization is a powerful tool to handle solid materials like fluid. From its early times ‘circulating fluidization’ has been essential in configurating a sophisticated contacting schema between different fluids and solids to conduct necessary physical and chemical processing operations. However, a sophisticated solid handling scheme always has a risk of agglomeration and defluidization. Since application of circulating fluidization is further widening on the basis of its successes in many industrial applications and of its increased reliability with the progress of powerful computer simulation technologies, it has to have more responsibility for sure implementation and operation avoiding unwanted agglomeration and defluidization.
