Venice 2016 - 6th International Symposium on Energy from Biomass and Waste

The sixth edition of the Venice Symposium will take place from 14 to 17 November 2016 in Venice and will focus as per tradition on the advances made in the application of technologies for energy recovery from biomass and waste and to encourage discussion in these fields.

The previous edition of the Symposium was attended by nearly 580 scientists and operators from approximately 62 different countries.

The sixth edition will last four days and will include oral sessions, a poster session, an exhibition by companies working in the field and technical tours.
The Symposium is organized by the International Waste Working Group (IWWG) with the scientific support of the Universities of Queensland, Padova, Hokkaido, Rostock , Trento and Hamburg University of Technology.

Venice 2016 will include the following topics: Biomass and waste characterization as a potential energy source • Renewable fuel • Anaerobic digestion • Refuse-derived fuel / Solid recovered fuel • Thermal treatment • Economic aspects • Decision tools • Policies and Legal aspects • Climate change and Sink • Ecotoxicological aspects and Health issues • Public acceptance • Experiences and new developments • Developing countries.

Parker Hannifin Biogas Dehumidification System

Parker Hannifin Biogas Dehumidification System

The selection of effective biogas treatment equipment is important, both in optimizing the cogeneration of electrical and thermal energy, making the most of the available renewable energy, and reducing energy consumption and operating. Parker's solution is to dry the gas, firstly by cooling using a water-cooled heat exchanger working with an air-cooled water chiller and secondly, by removing the condensed water with a cyclonic water separator. The cooled gas can then be reheated to reduce the relative humidity and thus meet the technical demands of gas engines, turbines and other downstream equipment.
