COMBINE - Gewinnung speicherbarer Bioenergie aus extensivem Grünland

Bioenergy for Green Regions in Europe - Register now! for the 1st interregional conference of the PROGRASS network in Karlsruhe and Lake Constance, Germany in October 7-9, 2014.

The PROGRASS® concept is a European regional development approach for the recovery of regional biomasses for decentralised production of climate friendly, storable biofuels. It builds on the use of a technology called "Integrated Generation of Solid Fuel and Biogas from Biomass (IFBB)”. The two INTERREG projects COMBINE (INTERREG North-West Europe) and DANUBENERGY (INTERREG Central Europe) have further developed the concept and have demonstrated its feasibility with biomass from roadside verges and riparian areas. The PROGRASS® network is part of the CLIMATE KIC of the European Institute of Technology.

The first European Conference of the PROGRASS network is organised by the projects DANUBENERGY and COMBINE.

Its main goal is to gather stakeholders at local, regional, national and EU-wide levels that wish to enlarge and exchange their knowledge about the IFBB technical approach and about its potential socio-economic impacts on their specific regions.

The event “Bioenergy for Green Regions in Europe” is a combined conference and workshop and will address the following topics:

-          Day 1: State of the art: the PROGRASS concept and the IFBB technology as implemented in the European partner regions;

-          Day 2: Perspectives: new developments regarding input materials, biomass recovery areas and socio-innovations;

-          Day 3: Networking and joint project development

Each day can be booked separately! Please use the online registration form.

Target audience: experts from science and practice, environmental associations, operators of central heating systems (e.g. municipalities, private energy suppliers), investors, energy advisors, farmers, farmers’ cooperatives, NGOs, political and administrative stakeholders at local, regional, national or European level,  etc.

Registration deadline:  August 31st, 2014 – No conference fee – travel and hotel costs as well as the social event are not included (coffee breaks/lunch throughout the conference provided).

Please note the limited number of participants for the event. Places are allocated on a first come, first served basis according to the chronological order of registration.
