2015 NETL-IWTU Fluidization Workshop

On March 19, 2015, DOE's Office of Fossil Energy (FE), Environmental Management (EM), National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), and Idaho National Laboratory Integrated Waste Treatment Unit (IWTU) held the NETL-IWTU Fluidization Workshop.  This workshop discussed various fluidization topics how fluidization forms the basis for many FE and EM applications.  Topics discussed included fluidization fundamentals and their applications to power plants, coal kinetics, agglomeration, filter systems, novel instrumentation, and applications of multiphase models to fluidized bed systems.
