IX International Symposium on Energy from Biomass and Waste - VENICE 2022
VENICE 2022 - 9th INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON ENERGY FROM BIOMASS AND WASTE, is to be held in person in Venice from 21st to 23rd November 2022.
The Symposium will take place in a new prestigious venue, Palazzo Dandolo, just a few steps away from Piazza San Marco. The history of Palazzo Dandolo, incorporated in the top class Hotel Monaco & Grand Canal, was first established in 1638 as a public “Ridotto”, a place where Venetians retired for the purpose of gambling, parties, entertainment, representing the first “casino” in the world. Giacomo Casanova was one of their renowned guests.
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 society, particularly in this period where geopolitics and dependence on energy have become such an important issue.
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 however, in many countries their implementation is still limited.
The aim of the Venice Symposium is to focus on advances made in the application of technologies for energy recovery from biomass and waste and to encourage discussion in these fields.
The Symposium is organised by IWWG–International Waste Working Group with the scientific support of the Universities of Hamburg, Padova, Queensland, Rostock, Tongji and Zhejiang.
