An event within the H2020 BIOFIT project
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.
We want to discuss these questions with you in interactive sessions. You will have the opportunity to exchange knowledge, give feedback and hear
from experts about best practice examples and experiences with retrofitting.
The participants will get considerable space to present their industry/company, problems and challenges in order to contribute to the joint goal of retrofitting the industry with bioenergy integration. If you are interested in sharing your retrofitting experiences, you are kindly asked to get in contact with Arne Gröngröft ([email protected]) until May 10th, 2019.
When: September 11th, 2019
Where: Deutsches Biomasseforschungszentrum, Leipzig/Germany
