About the workshop

The goal of the workshop is to present the results of the German-Chilean project ‘SeMoBioEnergy’ as well as discuss about future research topics in the area of sustainable biomass use in Chile and beyond. This includes – but is not limited to – the assessment of sustainable biomass potentials, current and emerging conversion technologies as well as use concepts, in particular those dealing with the challenges regarding biomass logistics due to biomass characteristics (high water content, low bulk density).

Moreover, the workshop offers a platform for exchange between Chilean and German researchers as well as other professionals from politics, administration and the industry. The idea of partnering and cooperation between Germany and Chile in the area of innovative and sustainable biomass use is at the core of the workshop.
