Overview of Technical Tour Programme now available

The 8th International Freiberg Conference offers conference participants the exciting opportunity to visit modern coal mining, generation and R&D facilities as well as chemical plants in the Rhenish region and engage industry experts in dialogue during the technical tours. On 15th June 2016, participants can choose to either participate in the half-day technical tours POWER 1 to Neurath Power Plant or in CHEMICAL 1 to INEOS. On 16th June 2016, participants have the choice between full day tours POWER 2 which includes a visit to the Garzweiler Opencast Mine and the Niederaussem Power Plant and Coal Innovation Centre, or CHEMICAL 2 which will take them to CHEMPARK Leverkusen and LyondellBasell.

As the number of places for technical tours are limited, places will be allocated on a “first come, first served” basis. We therefore highly encourage early registration to guarantee your place in the technical tours! Online registration for technical tours will be available together with the conference registration from 5th February 2016 onwards.
