Bio4Energy and partners will be giving talks on next-generation
biorefinery from forest-sourced biomass, and a give guided tour
to pilot facilities for making fuel pellets, during the 2011 Bioenergy Days at Umeå, Sweden, 8 and 9 November.
B4E scientists from the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) 8 November will host a guided tour to the SLU pilot plant designed to make fuel pellets from forest-sourced raw materials. A bus chartered by conference organisers Svebio will be departing from the Umeå central bus station, at Vasaplan, at 9.15 am, to visit the pilot facilities at Röbäcksdalen.
The following day B4E leadership will outline plans for creating leading-edge biorefinery, including maximally efficient processes for making biofuels and bio-based chemicals, with a view to phasing out petrochemical products and fossil fuels. Meet the Bio4Energy team at Folkets Hus, downtown Umeå, together with Clas Engström, heading the Processum umbrella organisation for firms and research institutes in biorefinery. Session 9 of the Bioenergy Days starts at 1.30 p.m.
Leading researchers in thermochemical gasification and biotechnology applied to woody materials will be describing possibilities for taking next steps in biochemical and thermochemical biorefinery.
Bio4Energy invites media representatives and bioenergy stakeholders to come and meet some of the B4E researchers from Umeå University, Luleå University of Technology and SLU, as well as B4E management, or to contact them by phone.
