The Broadmoor

The Gasification Technologies Council has opened registration for the 2013 Gasification Technologies Conference, the industry’s largest and most prestigious event. The Gasification Technologies Council, the premier trade association and foremost authority on the gasification industry, is hosting the event Oct. 13-16 at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Co. “This is the premier global gasification conference and best networking event for anyone interested in gasification,” said Alison Kerester, Executive Director of the Gasification Technologies Council. “It is a tremendous opportunity to learn about the latest technical advances, market trends and policy issues impacting the gasification industry.” The conference’s keynote speaker will be Robert Ineson, Managing Director at IHS CERA. He will detail the latest trends on global energy markets. This year’s program will include biomass and waste gasification, coal and petcoke gasification, plasma gasification, project updates, underground coal gasification, gasification R&D, gasification for hydrogen and an update on the global gasification market. There also will be pre-conference gasification basics and project finance workshops. Participants may register at www.gasification.org. Kerester said the annual conference attracts more than 500 people and dozens of exhibitors from around the world. “Participants come from the entire value chain of the gasification industry, including technology providers, engineering firms, equipment suppliers, developers, plant owners, academics, government and potential customers,” Kerester said. “They truly represent the best of the gasification industry.” The presentations are one of the conference’s highlights. This year’s presentations will feature the latest on: • Global gasification markets, including China, Japan, India and the Middle East • Biomass and waste gasification • Plasma gasification • Gasification projects and technology • Underground coal gasification • Gasification for fuels and chemicals • Gasification for power • Advanced gasification • Small-scale gasifiers • Technology improvements • Research and development ABOUT THE GASIFICATION TECHNOLOGIES COUNCIL The Gasification Technologies Council (GTC) promotes a better understanding of the role gasification can play in providing the power, chemical and refining industries with economically competitive and environmentally conscious technology options to produce electricity, fuels and chemicals and for converting waste and biomass into these same valuable products. GTC members are involved in all aspects of developing, deploying, and using commercial gasification technologies to produce, process, and use clean synthesis gas for the production of chemicals, fuels, substitute natural gas, and power. GTC member companies are involved in gasification projects -- as plant owners, technology suppliers, or equipment/service suppliers -- that account for 95 percent of world synthesis gas capacity.
