European Conference and Technology
Exhibition, Wurzburg, Germany: June 8-11,
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
participation will contribute to making
this conference the largest European
meeting on biomass in 1998.
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.
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.
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.
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.
much hope to be able to welcome you to
this 10th European Biomass Conference in
