Since 1985, when CIBO hosted the first FBC Boiler conference in Washington, D.C., boiler and energy production system owners, engineering firms, regulators, suppliers, technology developers and users have gathered each year to discuss the design, applicability, operation and performance of the systems, combustion technologies, their applications and the energy strategies needed to improve overall performance and operations in times of changing environmental regulations, energy demand and fuel availability and acceptability. This marks more than 30 years of industry networking and technology transfer to help bring industrial, institutional and independent power production energy technology to where it is today.

The agenda allows for maximum interaction between participants with similar equipment and concerns. Monday afternoon’s FBC Owners’ only and Manufacturers’ & Suppliers’ Only Forums and the joint owners and manufacturers and suppliers discussion have been extremely beneficial for establishing long term networking relationships. The agenda includes focused presentations on the latest operations, maintenance, performance, outage and staffing questions. With mounting pressure from stockholder and citizens’ activist groups, the need for proof of sustainability and social responsibility are changing the way we run our energy assets. This conference focuses on what it takes to implement sustainability goals, objectives and plans.
