The conference is being held in collaboration with Aalborg University’s Energy Section in Esbjerg, which is the lead partner in the Large Scale Bioenergy Lab2 research project, funded by the Interreg5a programme. The collaborators include Hochschule Flensburg, Roskilde University (RUC), Vejen Municipality, Organic Denmark (Økologisk Landsforening) and a list of companies with expertise in the field. Read the press release here.
The conference took place on Wednesday 16 January 2019 in MESSE C Fredericia at 10 am to 6 pm in the Bioenergy Division at NutriFair in hall D.
The day was divided into four themes: treating biomasses, biogas production, recycling residual biomass and integration of wind and solar energy in the biogas platform.
