Wetland Biomass to Bioenergy Project demonstration with Natural Synergies

5 March 2014, 10:00 - 15:30

Venue: The Pipers Inn, The Pipers Inn, Somerset, TA7 9QL

Overview
The UK undertakes a considerable amount of land management activities on private and public land, for example to maintain parkland or to conserve wildlife habitats. This land management results in the production of biomass waste that in many cases are either burned or left to decompose.

Last year DECC invested £2m to develop and demonstrate an efficient bioenergy system that optimises existing wetland management activities and utilises the biomass waste. The successful projects have demonstrated;

  • Optimisation of wetland management processes to increase harvested biomass in a manner sympathetic to wetland habitat conservation requirements and limitations

  • Efficient production of bioenergy feed stock utilising the resultant biomass (reeds, rushes, grasses and sedges) that comply with emission standards or equivalents when used to generate energy

  • A cost effective and energy/carbon efficient bioenergy conversion process capable of utilising the specified biomass waste.

Who should attend?
This event will benefit businesses, community groups, academics, researchers and local authorities in the following sectors; Environment, Energy and Agriculture with an interest in bioenergy and energy from waste.
