Lars Wietschel from the Resource Lab at the University of Augsburg will be attending the European Biomass Conference and Exhibition (EUBCE) 2018, where he will be presenting a poster on EU agricultural residue potentials as part of the wider Rehap project.

The event, which takes place in Copenhagen on May 14th – 18th, combines one of the largest biomass science and technology conferences with a high quality industry exhibition, attracting biomass professionals from around the globe.

Wietschel’s poster, titled “Assessment of European Union’s agricultural residue potentials available for high-added value products: Current state and future development”, summarises a methodology for the forecasting of agricultural residues in the EU.

The scientific novelty of the work being presented is the assessment of available and future potentials of lignocellulose residues for use on an industrial scale. The poster will present the results of this study which will help forecast the bioeconomic potential of each agricultural residue and future farming possibilities, contributing to the current discussion about the EU’s feedstock availability for a future bioeconomy.

This is a huge opportunity for Rehap and will provide the project with a platform to showcase their advances and results to some of the leading biomass specialists and professionals from around the globe.

We will catch-up with Lars during and after EUBCE 2018 to get his take on the event.
