850 Contributions from 62 Countries Submitted for Presentation at the EU BC&E 2014 in Hamburg, Germany

The received abstracts cover the entire range of the biomass value chain and a well balanced share of the coverage of Conference Subjects with a particularly strong response to biomass potentials, and from biomass and bioenergy industry, in particular addressing biorefineries and biomass combustion.

Analysis confirms the trend towards further internationalisation with a strong participation from countries outside of Europe. The largest number of abstracts continues to be submitted from Germany, host country of the EU BC&E 2014, and underlines its strong position in biomass research and development.

25% of the industrially-oriented abstracts come from Germany and United States of America.

16% of submitted abstracts come from Asia with China increasing significantly, 5 times more than the previous edition.

South America participated with +30% more abstracts.

The abstracts are currently being reviewed and scored by the international Scientific Committee made up of 140 leading research and industry experts from the global biomass sector.

David Baxter, European Commission, DG JRC and EU BC&E Technical Programme Chairman, coordinates the Scientific Committee to set up a well-balanced Conference programme of highest international standards. Kyriakos Maniatis, Industry Committee Coordinator will evaluate the industrially-oriented abstracts for inclusion in dedicated sessions within the programme.

To guarantee the quality of the programme, each abstract is scored by 3 independent reviewers before the topic organisers select the oral and visual presentations.

The Conference programme will be published in February 2014.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
