Other coverage on the event

The 19th European Biomass Conference in Berlin acknowledged the rising interest in the potential of algae as energy crops by not only dedicating several sessions to the topic but also hosting as a parallel event the Workshop on Algae, dedicated to reviewing the technology status of algae and exploring deployment opportunities. The intense exchange of ideas during the day has highlighted the extensive research and development currently implemented in the EU on algae, and the high expectations they raise in the fuel sector. The workshop was co-chaired by the European Commission and Hart Energy.
