News & Events
The BIOFIT Industry Platform is set-up to involve a broad spectrum of industry representatives into the project activities.
The objective of this platform is to support the networking between industries to foster market uptake of retrofitting technologies, to gather feedback and recommendations from the industry, NGOs, and policy makers, and to exchange knowledge and experiences among the different industries. In this context, regular working group meetings will be hold as side events of conferences, workshops and industrial meetings. Open to public, relevant drivers, opportunities and barriers of retrofitting will be discussed and possible solutions will be presented and evaluated.
Stakeholders interested to join the BIOFIT Industry Platform are kindly asked to get in contact with Arne Gröngröft, DBFZ Deutsches Biomasseforschungszentrum gemeinnützige GmbH via [email protected]
BIOFIT Industry Forum - H2020 Project on Bioenergy Retrofits for Europe’s Industry
When: 9 July 2020, 13:00 - 15:00 pm
Where: E-EUBCE 2020, Online Conference
The BIOFIT EU project aims to facilitate the introduction of bioenergy retrofitting in Europe’s industry, focussing on bioenergy retrofitting in the five chosen specific industries, namely first-generation biofuels, pulp and paper, fossil refineries, fossil firing power and Combined Heat and Power (CHP) plants. The E-EUBCE 2020 workshop will present and discuss the projects interim results.
