NutriFair invites you to the biggest biogas fair in the world, to be held in Germany
NutriFair is inviting anyone with an interest in the biogas industry to attend the world’s largest biogas fair, to be held in Germany this December. The fair’s project manager explains that this is an opportunity to learn from each other, find inspiration and create a bigger customer network outside Denmark’s national borders.
It has only taken Denmark a few years to open the taps in the move towards climate-friendly biogas. Denmark is currently the world leader in large biogas plants, that are replacing coal and oil as sources of energy, a development which is gaining momentum. This is why various other stakeholders are appearing who have a professional interest in keeping themselves updated about biogas. NutriFair is therefore experiencing a great deal of interest in the bioenergy aspect of this trade fair for agricultural professionals.
"It was two years ago that we introduced bioenergy, including biogas, as NutriFair content. In 2018 our bioenergy section was fairly small. Already in 2019, the bioenergy section had grown considerably, with 25 exhibitors and a very strong specialist programme. Developments in bioenergy are growing at lightning speed at this time, and it is good to see that agriculture will have a major role to play in the solution, rather than being one of the culprits for the challenges facing our climate. This means that I have no reservations when I say that NutriFair 2020 will again have a major focus on bioenergy." announces NutriFair’s project manager, Jørgen Kronborg.
As part of NutriFair’s increased focus on bioenergy, the trade fair (in partnership with Dansk Fagcenter for Biogas (the Danish centre for biogas expertise), BioenergiMagasinet and German DLG and Danish biogas industry stakeholders) is inviting interested parties to the world’s biggest biogas exhibition in Nuremberg, Germany, which will be held on 10-12 December, Biogas Convention & Trade Fair.
In Germany, farm biogas is the most popular form of biogas, with the greatest foothold, while Denmark has skills in the construction of large biogas plants. There is therefore plenty of knowledge to be shared between these two agricultural nations, who are also major stakeholders whose objective is to come up with sustainable climate solutions in the near future.
"In the space of just a few years, biogas will be the source of 25 percent of our renewable energy. This development has been both rapid and vigorous. This is why it will be interesting to see what we can learn from our neighbours south of the border, who have yet to make the same progress towards large biogas plants as we have in Denmark, but who instead have expertise in farm biogas. We will be taking a trip to Germany to find inspiration in what others are up to, giving ourselves the ability to create a greater customer network." says Kris Vetter, editor of BioenergiMagasinet, who is helping to plan this professional trip to the biogas fair in Nuremberg and who is also responsible for the biogas fair at NutriFair.
Inspiration and professionalism
We have seen almost a threefold increase in Danish biogas production in just five years. In line with increased focus on biogas, the need for inspiration, technology and network has become an important parameter in the development of Danish biogas. The Biogas Convention & Trade Fair will feature about 250 exhibitors and a broad conference programme, with contributors from the industry, various workshops and panel debates.
"We will be taking a professional group from Denmark to Germany, as an initiative that will draw attention to our existence and to Danish expertise. We can learn from others and they can learn from us. This will be an inspirational trip, where we can create a cross-border customer network." explains Jørgen Kronborg, who also hopes that NutriFair will be able to attract some of the same exhibitors to NutriFair in Denmark.
NutriFair, alongside Bioenergimagasinet and Dansk Fagcenter for Biogas, is therefore inviting people from the Danish biogas industry to attend this trip, which will take place between 10-11 December 2019. The professional group will be accompanied by bus to Hamburg, then fly on to Nuremberg.
"NutriFair stands for professionalism and we want to support green ideas with new knowledge, inspiration and networks, so that participants will come home with plenty of opportunities for their own development." says Jørgen Kronborg, NutriFair’s project manager.
