The main topic is: "Biomass as an energy alternative". The history of biomass begins with the primeval campfire. Today, much more efficient technologies are available to generate regenerative heat, electricity and fuels with biomass. In 2007, 6.2 percent of Germany's final energy consumption was covered by biomass. In view of rising prices for fossil fuels, there is untapped potential for the use of biomass for energy and thermal purposes.
The issue also contains an in-depth interview with Hendrik Becker, PlanET Biogastechnik GmbH, on the subject of biogas. Hendrik Becker is managing partner of PlanET Biogastechnik GmbH.
