International Conference "European Legislation to Promote Bioenergy"

04.10.2004


The International Conference "European Legislation to Promote Bioenergy", November 8th and 9th in Brussel, offers special opportunities to engage in direct communication with outstanding speakers from the Parliament and the Commission through organised bilateral meetings, and create contacts among participants.



EU legislation drives bioenergy

European policy strengthens its influence on the energy and environmental sectors towards bioenergy development and climate change mitigation. Various schemes have been implemented at EU, national and regional levels to make bioenergy competitive. In parallel a market for carbon allowances will start soon in the framework of the Emission Trading scheme. Recovered Fuels can participate to both these concerns while at the same time providing a flexibility in waste management. The conference will address all these issues with institutional and private representatives, including financing bodies.


Programme:

The conference is divided into 4 sessions : news from EU Parliament, news from EU Commission, Solid Recovered Fuels and financing bioenergy.

This high profile conference will provide opportunities to identify key EU trends for bioenergy. There are special opportunities to engage in direct communication with outstanding speakers from the Parliament and the Commission through organised bilateral meetings, and create contacts among participants. The conference will be especially useful to those engaged in business. Complete programme available at http://www.ecop.ucl.ac.be/aebiom.

Organiser:

The European Bioenergy Business Forum - EBBF is a non profit organisation created under the patronage of two international organisations, the European Biomass Association AEBIOM and Carbonfix e.V., and is supported by erneuerbare energien GmbH.

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...

Im Focus: How to inflate a hardened concrete shell with a weight of 80 t

At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).

Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...

Im Focus: Bacterial Pac Man molecule snaps at sugar

Many pathogens use certain sugar compounds from their host to help conceal themselves against the immune system. Scientists at the University of Bonn have now, in cooperation with researchers at the University of York in the United Kingdom, analyzed the dynamics of a bacterial molecule that is involved in this process. They demonstrate that the protein grabs onto the sugar molecule with a Pac Man-like chewing motion and holds it until it can be used. Their results could help design therapeutics that could make the protein poorer at grabbing and holding and hence compromise the pathogen in the host. The study has now been published in “Biophysical Journal”.

The cells of the mouth, nose and intestinal mucosa produce large quantities of a chemical called sialic acid. Many bacteria possess a special transport system...

Im Focus: Repairing defects in fiber-reinforced plastics more efficiently

Fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP) are frequently used in the aeronautic and automobile industry. However, the repair of workpieces made of these composite materials is often less profitable than exchanging the part. In order to increase the lifetime of FRP parts and to make them more eco-efficient, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) and the Apodius GmbH want to combine a new measuring device for fiber layer orientation with an innovative laser-based repair process.

Defects in FRP pieces may be production or operation-related. Whether or not repair is cost-effective depends on the geometry of the defective area, the tools...
