The Department of Decentralised Energy Conversion of Stuttgart is coordinating  an EU-project (BIO-PRO) that aims on the development of new burners for low-grade bio-fuels. In the project two burner technologies (FLOX, COSTAIR) will be adapted to low calorific value gas combustion. Among the project partners are WS Wärmeprozesstechnik GmbH and Gaswärme-Institut Essen. A workshop has been organised to inform potential users and manufacturer about the results in our project.

The workshop will be entitled “New burner for bio-residues” and will take place in Stuttgart on the 21st of February 2007.

Here is the programme of the workshop:
