Successful conclusion of the 7th International Freiberg Conference in Huhhot, Inner Mongolia, China
This year’s conference, co-organized by the Institute of Energy Process Engineering and Chemical Engineering (TU Bergakademie Freiberg, Germany) and Synfuels China Technology brought together 160 experts, specialists and researchers from 15 countries for four days of intensive discussion about the wide range of thermo-conversion issues linked to coal conversion and syngas production. A special focus of the event was the development of CtL technologies in China. Participants had the opportunity to obtain first-hand experience of the rapid and large-scale CtL developments in China through technical tours to the Yitai Dalu Coal-to-Liquids Plant and the coal-to-chemicals gasification site owned by the Inner Mongolia Rongxin Chemical Industry. The conference organising committee would like to thank all conference participants, exhibitors, sponsors and supporters for their contribution to making this year’s event in Huhhot, Inner Mongolia, China a success. We look forward to welcoming you to the next conference in Germany in 2016.
