Biomass and biogas

November saw the BioMara team from IT Sligo attending two international conferences in Europe.

Carlos Vanegas attended the Third International Symposium on Energy from Biomass and Waste in Venice. It was an excellent opportunity for him to meet other researchers in the biomass to biogas area and to see the “state of the art” technologies available.

Meanwhile, Alan Hernon presented a paper entitled “A biorefinery approach to the production of Biogas from Algae” to the 15th European Biosolids & Organic Resources Conference in Leeds. Europe’s foremost conference for the biosolids and biowaste industries, the conference brought together over 280 environmental professionals and 30 exhibitors. It was an excellent opportunity for Alan to meet with groups operating industrial scale anaerobic digestion plants.
