Bioenergy investment booms - agriculture to enable a green future
Largest European bioenergy exhibition launches 14-17 November 2006 at Hanover Exhibition Grounds, Germany

Frankfurt (ots)

Published scientific evidence on the impact of
global climate change continues to mount and is now overwhelming.
Politicians, the private sector, and the general public are
increasingly looking to the agricultural sector to deliver
alternative renewable energy supplies derived from both animal and
arable resources.
With 8.5 billion Euros invested in renewable bioenergy in 2005
alone, Germany is acknowledged to be the technology leader in this
rapidly growing industrial sector.
To reflect this dynamic growth, a new exhibition called
BioEnergyEurope is being launched next week. It is the largest of its
kind in Europe and will cover the full range of renewable energy
solutions and will take place within the larger exhibition "EuroTier
2006" (, the international exhibition for animal
husbandry and management.
Compared to just five years ago, the number of bioenergy plants
has more than doubled and now supply over six times the energy output
previously achieved. The producers of suitable crop varieties, plant
and machinery manufacturers as well as technology organisations have
all greatly benefited from this high growth sector. Since 2004, the
boom in the German bioenergy sector has been reflected by the
creation of new investment funds specialising in bio energy.
At BioEnergyEurope, over 250 exhibitors will be presenting their
bioenergy expertise:
- Biogas (manure, crop, solid wastes) 
   - Solid biofuels (logs, chips, pellets, straw, grain, plant oil,
     organic residues) 
   - Liquid biofuels (biodiesel, vegetable oil, methanol, ethanol)
   - Solar technology (photovoltaics, solar thermal power technology)
BioEnergyEurope also includes demonstrations of biogas and heat
produced from wood and straw as well as presentations and a bioenergy
advice centre. More:
