Venice 2018 Symposium

The production of energy from alternative sources and its impact on climate change are among the main strategic tools implicated in the sustainable development of our society. Numerous types of biomass and wastes contribute towards the production of energy and reduction in the use of fossil fuels by means of biological, chemical and thermal processes. Existing biomass and waste to energy technologies are currently undergoing rapid development. Despite growing interest in the use of these technologies, in many countries their implementation remains limited.
The aim of the Venice 2018 Symposium is to focus on the advances made in the application of different substrates and biological/thermal technologies for energy recovery from biomass and waste and to encourage discussion in these fields. The conference will feature three days of scientific presentations plus one day of guided technical tours at biochemical and thermochemical plants, with an expected attendance of over 600 delegates from tens of different countries worldwide.
