The 1st European Commission Algae Contractors’ Conference and the 8th International Algae Congress will take place on 1st to 3rd December 2014 at Villa Vittoria, Palazzo Dei Congressi, in Florence, Italy. The conference is jointly organised by the European Algae Biomass Association (EABA) and the Directorates General for Energy and Research & Innovation of the European Commission in collaboration with DLG.
Bioenergy is produced by means of several chains of technologies from the production of biomass in a sustainable manner – meaning cultivation, harvesting, transportation, storage and eventually pre-treatment – to its use in a conversion process to produce the final form of energy requested: electricity, heat, CHP or biofuel for transport.
