The 19th European Biomass Conference and Exhibition will take place in Berlin (Conference: 6-10 June 2011; Exhibition: 6-9 June 2011). The technical programme will be coordinated by the DG Joint Research Centre of the European Commission. The event will be chaired by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Martin Faulstich, Technische Universität München, Direktor Science Center Straubing.
For over 30 years now, the European Biomass Conference and Exhibition (European BC&E) combines a very renowned international Scientific Conference with an Industry Exhibition. Since 2007 the Conference and Exhibition takes place annually. The European BC&E is held at different venues throughout Europe and ranks on top of the world's leading events in the Biomass sector.
This event is supported by European and international organizations such as the European Commission, BMU the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety, UNESCO - United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, Natural Sciences Sector, WCRE - the World Council for Renewable Energy, EUBIA - the European Biomass Industry Association.
The event will showcase models as best practices to the broad scientific community in order to assess their transferability and potential uses.
Convincing concepts and applicable models, which will be positivly evaluated by the experts during the conference, will have a multiplier effect on the entire European market. As only compelling and scientifically based concepts give access to funding by public bodies and local actors.
The results of the Conference Proceedings will be published after the event and will be accessible for professionals.
In the framework of the international European Biomass Conference the embedding of contributions from the BMU research program "Research and development for optimization of biomass energy use" is planned. This program aims to develop a sustainable German biomass strategy . The synthesis of the research program of the BMU and its intersection with the current issues of the day in the area of conflict between agricultural, environmental and energy policy will be the basis for a balanced, efficient and sustainable biomass strategy.
The above mentionned contributions approach mainly the development and support of a viable biomass strategy. This conference will ensure that the achievable climate protection effects will be detected significantly through the bioenergy provision and its use in comparison to the current technical state of the art, that the actors network will be improved and that accompanying activities will be developed for the implementation potential of the individual project boundaries.
