Biomass-to-Liquids (BTL) innovators will share insights on commercialization of BTL technologies for sustainable biofuels production at the 4th BTLtec conference. Held in Graz, Austria on 24-25 September 2009, 4th BTLtec will provide updates on pyrolysis and gasification technologies, syngas application and the complete BTL value chain. The final highlight to the event will be a site visit to the Biomass CHP Gussing Plant.
Graz, Austria (PRWEB) July 21,2009 -- The 4th BTLtec (Biomass to Liquids) summit will convene on 24-25 September 2009 in Graz, AUSTRIA with the intention to gather all the relevant stakeholders involved in the Biomass to Liquids value chain from all over the world. The conference will share a critical update on the ongoing activities and priorities within the industry, and discuss cost- effective BTL production methods, and strategies for BTL use on a national, regional and international level.
Biomass to Liquids technology (BTL) is at its most crucial stage of development, with increasing interest in BTL as a sustainable biofuel option. Commercial BTL production is around the corner, with pilot plants coming on stream across Europe, and high-level industry consortiums established to fund and research the BTL option.
In fact, the 4th BTLtec is supported by Europe's biggest and most ambitious BTL industry consortium, the OPTFUEL project. Established in February 2009, The OPTFUEL consortium is made up of 10 partners from 5 countries. OPTFUEL aims to demonstrate the production chain of synthetic fuels from biomass (BTL) and the potential of pollutants emissions reduction in vehicle applications.
As the BTL industry moves towards commercialisation, there is a pressing need to move forward with cost effective solutions for the entire BTL value chain, from Transporting Feedstock to Conversion Technologies as production of BTL scales up. 4th BTLtec spotlights BT
