Introduction

In-depth courses have been developed for industry under the banner of The Professional Development Centre, the education and training arm of the Fossil Fuel Foundation. The programme of courses is under the directorship of well know coal analyst Xavier Prevost supported by a team of subject specialists. The courses run from 1 day to 3 days depending on the subject. The topics range from sampling and quality analysis of coal and associated hydrocarbon resources, through their exploration, production, utilisation, trade and marketing to advanced technologies in each sector to ensure high efficiency and low emissions (HELE). Alternative energy resources with the economic impacts will also be examined.

 

COURSE ON CLEAN ENERGY

MOTIVATION

Coal is the prime feed for approximately 6 000 industrial scale and large scale heat and power generating boilers in this country. With the advent of export to India and the reducing qualities of coal from current mining areas, it has become difficult to obtain the correct qualities of coal to meet the specifications for boilers designed in the years gone by. This leads to reduced efficiency and increased emissions.

This course seeks to outline the issues now being faced by coal-fired boiler users and to present an outline of the coal qualities now available on the market with comments on how best to use them.

OBJECTIVES


The purpose of this workshop is to outline the principles of combustion and to present coal qualities and performance for users of coal in a range of boiler sizes, this to ensure improved efficiencies.

  • Energy challenges and solutions
  • The potential role of gasification of coal, biomass and waste in South/Southern Africa
  • Conventional technologies for the gasification of coal, biomass and waste
  • New gasification technologies for the future
  • Environmental impacts of gasification
  • Downstream products of gasification
  • Economics and impact on the energy mix in the country/region

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

  • IPP proponents and potential developers
  • Investors in fossil fuels and energy
  • Managers, engineers, technologists and scientists in
    • Power and chemicals production from gasification
    • Environmental sciences
    • Regulators, legislators and policy makers
    • Researchers and academics
