Power generation from biomass


Presentations of the Bioliquids-CHP workshop in Brussels (17-11-2011)

In the frame of the BioLiquids-CHP project a symposium was held at the Tuscany Regional Office in Brussels. The symposium brought together some 55 interested industry and research partners from across Europe and Russia to learn about the results and findings of the research project. In addition, invited industrial speakers informed the audience about their experiences of applying liquid biofuels for (combined heat and) power generation. Liquid biofuels considered include: fast pyrolysis oil, biodiesel, vegetable oil, as well as blends and emulsions hereof.

In four sessions a total of 16 presentations were given, covering a range of topics. You can download the presentations below.
