Ligthart wins Renewable Energy World Europe Best Paper Award


At the recent POWER-GEN Europe event held in Cologne earlier this month, the Director of Waste-to-Energy at Finnish firm Valmet was recognised for his paper, entitled, RDF Combustion & Gasification Technologies for High Efficient Energy Production.

Frank Ligthart’s effort in the Renewable Energy Technology track was enough to win the Best Paper Award in that category.
The paper provides an overview of advanced thermal conversions solutions by Valmet for the use of waste in production of electricity and heat. The paper focuses on fluidized bed combustion and gasification solutions for waste derived fuels, by giving a description of the processes and update on the status of the company’s latest reference plants.
