Title: Opportunities and Obstacles in the Use of Agricultural Biomass in the Production of Heat and Power.

Friday November 23, 2012
9.30 – 11.05 am
University of Guelph Laboratory Services 1st floor Conference Room 95 Stone Rd W (adjacent to 1 Stone Rd. Govt Complex)
Guelph, Ontario.

 

Dr. Fernando Preto

Thermochemical Conversion of Biomass
Natural Resources Canada’s CanmetENERGY laboratories in Ottawa, Ontario
Education: Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering, Queen’s University at Kingston 


What he studies

Dr. Preto works on developing new and improved technologies to make biomass a sustainable, efficient and clean source of energy. His research is focused on thermochemical or heat-associated chemical processes, namely: combustion, gasification, pyrolysis and torrefaction. These processes vary the time, temperature and pressure of biomass conversion to produce energy and/or gaseous, liquid or solid biofuels.


Agenda

 9:30 Welcome and Introductions
 
9:35

Presentation on Opportunities and Obstacles with Agricultural Biomass for Heat and Power Production 

 11:20 Discussion and Q&A 
 11:00  Adjourn

For those attending the Nov. 22 Agricultural Biomass Business Forum, this seminar on Nov 23rd will elaborate on the areas Dr. Preto is only able to touch on briefly during the panel discussion on Domestic Biomass Energy Opportunities (focus on heat).

We encourage you to attend to enhance your knowledge of this emerging industry and have an opportunity to network with a cross section of people and organizations interested in developing the biomass industry in Ontario. The program includes time allotted for group discussion of the information presented.

Paid Parking is available at the North and South Entrances of the 1 Stone Rd. Complex.
