10th European Conference and Technology Exhibition, Wurzburg, Germany: June 8-11, 1998

Chairman's Message

The 10th European Biomass Conference will take place during 8-11 June 1998 in Würzburg, Germany. It is my pleasure to extend an invitation to you to attend this event.

Your participation will contribute to making this conference the largest European meeting on biomass in 1998.

The increasing acceptance amongst scientist and politicians alike of the necessity to reduce CO2 emissions and intensify the development of renewable energy technologies, has raised the importance of biomass as an energy source. Particularly significant in this context is the fact that, of all renewable resources, biomass has the greatest potential for growth.

In addition to covering all new aspects of conversion technologies, cultivation and preparation of biomass, this conference will particularly focus on market exploitation opportunities and securing a greater share in the heat, electricity and transportation fuel markets. An additional emphasis will be placed on information relating to the use of solid biomass. In order to promote the transition from research results to practical application, a specific programme for political decision makers will be offered.

Based on a format that has proven successful in the past, the Conference will consist of three forms of presentations: selected oral papers, high quality poster presentations and an exhibition.

The beautiful city of Würzburg has been chosen as the venue for this Conference. Würzburg lies on the river Main, not far from Frankfurt airport, in the heart of the wine making region of Franken. In a setting framed by the baroque royal palace on one hand and Marienburg castle on the other, the Conference will take place in the ambient atmosphere of a modern conference centre.

I very much hope to be able to welcome you to this 10th European Biomass Conference in Würzburg.

Dr. Heinz Kopetz, Conference Chairman
