VENICE 2020 – 8th International Symposium on Energy from Biomass and Waste

November 16 - November 19

ve20-banner-300x120The production of energy from alternative sources and its impact on climate change are among the main strategic tools implicated in the sustainable development of our society. Numerous types of biomass and wastes contribute towards the production of energy and reduction in the use of fossil fuels by means of biological, chemical and thermal processes. Existing biomass and waste to energy technologies are currently undergoing rapid development. Despite growing interest in the use of these technologies, in many countries their implementation remains limited.

The aim of the Venice 2020 is to focus on the advances made in the application of technologies for energy recovery from biomass and waste and to encourage discussion in these fields. The previous edition of the Symposium, held in 2018, was attended by over 400 scientists and operators from approximately 43 different countries.

The eighth edition of the Symposium will feature:

  • Three days of scientific presentations
  • One day of guided technical tours at biochemical and thermochemical plants
  • Oral sessions, a poster session and an exhibition by companies working in the field
  • Expected attendance of over 500 delegates from tens of different countries worldwide

The Symposium is organised by the International Waste Working Group (IWWG) with the scientific support of the Universities of Padova, Trento, Hokkaido, Rostock, Tsinghua, Queensland and Hamburg University of Technology.
