During the first half decade after the patent on fluidized bed for fuel conversion 1922 only a few  gasifiers were built with fluidized bed. However, fluidized bed also found several applications in the chemical and petroleum industry. A world-wide interest for fluidized bed as a fuel converter emerged in the 1970s when it was realised that fluidized bed conversion offered several environmental advantages. This started a vivid development in various countries. Among other activities, in 1980 a co-operation on the development of fluidized bed combustion (FBC) was initiated within the International Energy Agency (IEA) with participation from about ten OECD countries. Later, this activity was broadened to include also gasification and the name was changed to fluidized bed conversion (FBC). Also, several non-OECD countries were invited to participate. This activity still goes on, although its character has changed slightly, as the knowledge on FBC is increasing.

1. Nova Scotia Power Inc.’s 165 MWe CFBC plant at Point Aconi remains the largest fluidized bed facility in Canada. The plant is operating normally and firing a mixture of petroleum coke and coal. 
2. South Shore Power operates one 25 MWe BFB boiler firing wood waste from a paper mill. The facility is located in Brooklyn, Nova Scotia. 
3. To extract oil from the oil sands, several companies operate fluidized bed cokers for bitumen upgrading in Alberta. The companies include Syncrude, Suncor, Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. and others. These are large-scale fluidized bed facilities. As oil prices continue to rise, more oil sands projects will be initiated. It is thus predicted that more fluidized bed cokers will be built and operated.

Initially, yearly reports were issued by the IEA-FBC co-operation, but after so me years this was found to be of limited value, and the yearly reports were replaced by the website where most relevant information about the organization of the co-operation and reported results can easily be found. During the meeting in Göteborg several members felt that it was time to make a summary of the status on FBC in the member countries, and the representatives from the 16 member countries agreed to make a short survey on the situation in each country. The purpose is to show the conditions for FBC, which vary from country to country, and the recent development in each country, say during the last five years. These reports follow here.

Biomass CFB Boiler Plant in Bahamas

In Bahamas, the biomass can be burned using conventional combustion technology like grate furnace or fluidized bed boilers. For power generation the biomass would be charged to the furnace of a steam boiler.Steam produces by the boiler will then drive a steam turbine generator to generate electricity. The typical capacity range for biomass power plants 1-20MW.
