The Council of Industrial Boiler Owners Fluidized Bed Combustion XXVII and Stoker Fired Operations and Performance Conference, which will be held May 19-21 at the Hershey Lodge in Hershey, Pa., is expected to attract industrial boiler owners, engineering firms, regulators and suppliers. The annual event is a forum for discussing how fluidized bed combustion units and stoker fired boilers can be used to improve overall performance and operations while addressing changing environmental regulations, energy demands and fuel availability and quality.

The conference is expanded to stoker and all solid fuel fired boilers because of similar operational and performance concerns. Planned topics of discussion include Boiler MACT, area source GACT, CISWI, MATS and transport rule compliance. The conference will include boiler owners’ only and manufacture’ and suppliers’ only forums; results of the CIBO annual operations and performance survey; energy assessments and tuneups; and discussion on plant performance assessment, maintenance and emission control and sorbent considerations.
