DBFZ publishes ressource database

Consistent information on the biogenic raw material base is a central basis for the strategic evaluation of options for action in the context of the bioeconomy. As part of the national monitoring of the bioeconomy, the DBFZ compiled a comprehensive collection of results on the supply and use of resources of biogenic residues, by-products and wastes from five sectors.

Experts take positive stock of dust separators

At the "Separator Expert Discussion" on 20 March 2019, around 90 manufacturers, experts and interested experts met for a lively exchange on the current state of emission reduction in domestic furnaces. Conclusion: The developments to reduce harmful emissions are well advanced and for the most part available on the market, but the political framework conditions and the market incentive for the end consumer are lacking.

Retrofitting Measures for Biofuel plants

Besides erecting entirely new biofuel plants, retrofitting – i.e. replacing a part of a factory or installation with state-of-the-art equipment – can be a very good alternative to substitute fossil fuels or to upgrade renewable technology. Retrofitting often means lower capital expenditure (CAPEX), shorter lead times, faster implementation, less production time losses and lower risks. The BIOFIT project was set-up to foster retrofitting measures on the European market. ...
