"Practical Prevention of Combustible Dust Fires and Explosions in Biomass Industry"
Track 1: Pellets & Densified Biomass
Vital Safety Considerations for Manufacturers, Handlers, and Shippers of Wood Pellets
dust presents a very real safety hazard that must be fully understood
and carefully monitored if plant operators intend to keep their staff
and their facilities away from an unwanted occurrence. Additionally, as
the practice of stockpiling more and more woody biomass becomes routine,
an awareness of carbon monoxide offgassing is emerging as a leading
safety consideration wherever woody biomass is found in bulk. This panel
will provide pellet producers and pellet handlers with the information
they need to keep their operation a safe work environment.

2014 International Biomass Conference & Expo
The Conference & ExpoThe 7th annual International Biomass Conference & Expo will take place March 24-26, 2014, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. This dynamic event unites industry professionals from all sectors of the world’s interconnected biomass utilization industries—biobased power, thermal energy, fuels and chemicals.
Organized by BBI International and produced by Biomass Magazine, this event brings current and future producers of bioenergy and biobased products together with waste generators, energy crop growers, municipal leaders, utility executives, technology providers, equipment manufacturers, project developers, investors and policy makers. It’s a true one-stop shop – the world’s premier educational and networking junction for all biomass industries.
International Biomass Conference & Expo is where future and existing producers of biobased power, fuels and thermal energy products go to network with waste generators and other industry suppliers and technology providers. It’s where project developers converse with utility executives; where researchers and technology developers rub elbows with venture capitalists; and where Fortune 500 executives and influential policy makers sit side-by-side with American farmers and foresters.
International Biomass Conference & Expo is the largest, fastest-growing event of its kind. In 2014, this event is expected to draw nearly 1,600 attendees. In 2013, the event drew more than 1,200 attendees and doubling the attendance of the inaugural show. This growth is fueled by a world-class Expo and an acclaimed program.
Once again, the 2014 International Biomass Conference & Expo program will include 30-plus panels and more than 100 speakers, including 90 technical presentations on topics ranging from anaerobic digestion and gasification to pyrolysis and combined heat and power, all within the structured framework of five customized tracks:
Track 1: Pellets & Densified Biomass Track 2: Biomass Power & Thermal Track 3: Biogas & Landfill Gas Track 4: Advanced Biofuels & Biobased Chemicals
International Biomass Conference & Expo will help you – as a biomass industry stakeholder – identify and evaluate technical and economic solutions that fit your operation. It's time to tap into the revenue generating potential of sustainable biomass resources. Get started today by registering for the 2014 International Biomass Conference & Expo!
