Description: Biomass accounts about 80% of the energy generated by renewable energy carriers worldwide. Biomass is the only carbon-based renewable energy source which can directly substitute fossil fuels. Biomass is also the only renewable energy source that can be stored and converted to heat, electricity and fuels (i.e. solid, liquid and gaseous) when they are needed. The demand for energy produced from biomass (bioenergy) is constantly growing due to it’s wider spectrum of applications. There are numerous technologies for the conversion of biomass into useful forms of energy. With the recent rapid development of biomass conversion technologies and increasing demand for decentralized, low-emission generation, the knowledge of efficient applications of modern bioenergy systems is important in the context of energy shortage and climate change. This presentation reviews the advances in the thermochemical conversion of biomass in to energy, i.e. pyrolysis, gasification and combustion.
Speaker: Dr. Abdul Salam is currently serving as Head of Department of Energy, Environment and Climate Change and Associate Professor of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency at Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), Bangkok, Thailand. Dr. Salam has around 25 years of international experience in research, consultancy and capacity building in the areas of bioenergy (biomass, biofuel, biogas), waste to energy, renewable energy, energy efficiency, and climate change mitigation. He has published more than 100 internationally refereed journal articles, conference papers, and books, and presented his research findings in more than 40 countries. He also has three years of working experience as the General Manager and Chief Design Engineer of an energy service company. He has obtained Master of Engineering (1994) and Doctor of Engineering (2005) in Renewable Energy and Energy Technology, respectively, from AIT. Dr. Salam also received the Thailand Frontier Researcher Award for 2016 in Engineering, in recognition of pioneering a new frontier research, by Thomson Reuters and Office of Higher Education Commission of Thailand.

Description: This webinar will be presented as two parts. Part 1 discusses on “Community Power Plant scheme in Thailand” and Part 2 discusses on “Municipal Solid Waste Power Plant scheme in Thailand”. In each part, issues related to Regulations, Incentives (Feed-in-Tariff Rates Structures); Government Agencies & Roles, Biogas Energy Potential in Thailand, Market Opportunities & Outlook and Success and challenges will be addressed. This webinar is aimed for professionals and investors involved with Waste to Energy Projects.
Speaker: Dr. Apipong Lamsam received his Doctoral of Engineering from Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) in 2008 on Environmental Engineering and Management. His focus has been on environmental issues including air pollution, wastewater treatment and biogas production system. He has over 10 years’ experience in the design of wastewater treatment process particularly on biogas production, treatment and purification process using various raw materials such as agricultural industrial wastewater, municipal solid waste and energy corp. Furthermore, he has vast experience in developing and execution of various waste to energy projects in Thailand which is one of the most attractive places in renewable energy project development in South East Asia. He is currently the Managing Director of Papop Co., Ltd. which is a leading biogas technology provider in Thailand.
