The Workshop
The DBFZ Deutsches Biomasseforschungszentrum gemeinnützige GmbH invites you to participate in the 2nd international workshop on CFD and biomass thermochemical conversion on September 9th, 2016 in Leipzig, Germany. This workshop follows the "1st international workshop on CFD and biomass thermochemical conversion" held in 2014.

CFD modelling is a powerful and reliable tool to design, analyze and optimize operating conditions. Its application to biomass thermochemical conversion utilities allows solving many technical issues including those related to design and operation. Recent progress in numerical techniques and computing efficiency has advanced CFD as a widely used approach in this field.

The workshop provides a forum for researchers around the world to share practical experiences and address the current opportunities and limitations of CFD in the field of biomass thermochemical conversion.


Contributions are solicited in all areas of CFD in the field of biomass thermochemical conversion, including (not limited to):

  • Small scale combustion
  • Medium and large scale combustion
  • Co-firing
  • Gasification
  • Submission

Authors from academia as well as industry are invited to submit their abstracts (PDF file) in two pages (size A4. Abstracts 210 x 297 mm) in English through the workshop email address: Fouzi.tabet(at)dbfz(dot)de. Submissions will be peer reviewed by our Program Committee. The abstract must provide a concise statement of objectives and summary of important results including figures and tables. A signed acceptance letter will be sent to the authors after the reviewing process.

Final manuscripts of full papers must be submitted until 15th of September 2014. They will be published in a conference proceeding with ISBN number. Note that no papers will be published without presentation at the conference. Please download the guidelines for manuscript Preparation from this link: Download

Final manuscripts of full papers must be submitted until September 1st, 2016.

The Deutsches Biomasseforschungszentrum (DBFZ) was founded on 28 February 2008 in Berlin as a non-profit LLC (gGmbH). The Federal German Government represented by the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) is the sole shareholder of the DBFZ. On 17 March 2008 the DBFZ acquired the former Institute for Energy and Environment gGmbH, including its entire real estate, and the two companies were fused into one on 17 June 2008. Among the advantages of this fusion was that the excellent technical expertise and the contacts of the Institute for Energy and Environment in the field of utilization of biomass for energy production could be integrated into the DBFZ. Scientific research commenced immediately after the foundation of the DBFZ. The DBFZ took over and continued work on third-party funded projects of the Institute for Energy and Environment and new research projects were launched. 179 Scientists are currently working at the DBFZ in the Research-Areas: Bioenergy Systems, Biochemical Conversion, Thermo-chemical Conversion and Biorefineries.
