As part of the 23rd European Biomass Conference & Exhibition in Vienna, the Austrian Day – a bioenergy technology day, will take place on 3 June 2015. Under the patronage of the Austrian Biomass Association, the event will be run by the Austrian Centre of Excellence BIOENERGY 2020+ in cooperation with the organizers of EUBCE.
The Austrian Day is supported by BMLFUW, BMVIT and WKÖ. Under the Chairmanship of Prof. Hermann Hofbauer, Key Researcher of BIOENERGY 2020+, Austrian companies and research institutes will present their “Made in Austria“ innovations of heat, power and fuel production to an international audience.
Based in a strong domestic market, Austrian bioenergy technology has a global leading position.
Roughly half of Austria’s households are supplied by a biomass-based heating system. With the exception of hydropower, biomass is Austria’s largest renewable energy source.
The Austrian Day is divided into 4 blocks:
> Fuels, raw materials, pre-treatment
> Residential Heat
> Heat and CHP
> Gaseous and liquid biofuels
After the welcoming presentations on the topics of market development, potentials and biomass utilisation, each block will include five lectures of austrian companies and research institutes.
Date: Wednesday 3 June 2015, 8:30 am – 6:30 pm
Venue: Messe Wien Congress and Exhibition Center, Messeplatz 1, 1020 Vienna
