Senior Renewable Heat Manager at Natural Power, Andy Yuill, will present ‘Sustainable straw - combustion of agricultural residue for combined heat and power' at All-Energy on Wednesday 4th May.
Natural Power's Senior Renewable Heat Manager, Andy Yuill, is set to present a session on ‘Sustainable straw - combustion of agricultural residue for combined heat and power' at All-Energy on Wednesday 4th May at the SECC in Glasgow. His talk forms part of the bioenergy session which takes place from 2pm to 3.30pm.
Andy Yuill said: "It is already common place in continental Europe and Asia, and the last couple of years have seen the commissioning of a number of utility scale straw fired biomass plants in the UK. At All-Energy, my presentation will explore how the utility scale combustion of straw stacks up from a sustainability viewpoint, looking at the lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions, and the availability of the material versus competing uses. I will also outline the key considerations when using straw as a fuel, and potential for generating electricity."
All-Energy is the UK's largest renewable energy event and expects over 8,250 professionals from 50 countries across two days. Taking place on 4th and 5th May in Glasgow, it is free to attend and brings together the entire spectrum of the renewables industry, from bioenergy, solar, offshore and onshore wind and wave and tidal sectors, through to those involved in energy storage, transmission and onsite generation, to showcase their energy solutions.
Natural Power will be well represented at All-Energy with teams from construction, technical and ecology on hand. If you would like to pre-arrange a meeting please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
