Welcome to Krakow!
On the first day of the workshop Monday 21 – Registration desk opens at 8.00 am.

There will be a dinner on Tuesday 22 May at a local venue in Krakow to which all delegates are invited.
MEC 13, the 13th Workshop on Multi-pollutant Emissions from Coal, in Krakow, takes place on the 21-23 May 2018, in the Radisson Blu Hotel, right in the heart of the old town.
This workshop pulls together international experts on reducing emissions, including particulates, SO2, NOx and mercury, from coal-fired utilities and offers an excellent opportunity to mix with government agencies, regulators, utilities, consultants, equipment suppliers and academia.
With the Minamata Convention moving into ratification and new, tighter, emission limits being required within the EU soon, there is no better time to be speaking to colleagues in the industry in Europe.
Topics to be addressed:
- Meeting tightening emission standards
- State of the art emission control
- Monitoring emissions at low concentrations
- HELE (high efficiency low emission) technology uptake in Europe
- Technology transfer to emerging economies
On the afternoon of Wednesday 23 May, we have arranged a site visit to a local coal-fired power plant. There are only 25 spaces for this trip and the fee is €45 to cover transfer costs. Please be advised that delegates must wear tops with long sleeves and jeans style trousers for the site visit.
The combined heat and power plant in Krakow, belongs to the Polish Energy Group (PGE), the largest energy and heat producer in Poland. The plant supplies 446 MWe of electricity and 1118 MWt of heat, which consists of about 60% of Krakow needs. In recent years , the plant has been thoroughly modernised to comply with the EU legislation (IED), in terms of particulates, nitrogen oxides and sulphur dioxide emissions. Pollution control equipment installed include: selective catalytic reduction (SCR), electrostatic precipitators (ESP), and wet flue gas desulphurisation (wFGD). The plant actively supports different environmental and cultural actions and events and frequently hosts technical tours for delegates from all over the world.
Cost for registration for the full event, including breaks, lunches and dinner, is €495.
There is no discount for speakers – this event is run at cost and any profit made will be used to facilitate the attendance of UN Coal Partnership delegates from emerging economies.
