Energy from Biomass and Waste: Growth Opportunities with Green Fuels

EBW Expo & Conference premieres in Pittsburgh - Almost 700 attendees discuss new technologies, new business

America's first international exhibition and conference on energy from biomass and waste, EBW Expo & Conference, successfully premiered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania last week (Sept 25-27, 2007). Almost 700 attendees met at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center to discuss the economical and environmental benefits of new energy conversion technologies. On the show floor, 85 exhibitors from seven countries presented machinery and services for the conversion of biomass and waste to power, heat and vehicle fuels. The conference featured 52 sessions and panel discussions with high-level speakers from around the world. The next "energy from biomass and waste" (EBW) Expo & Conference is scheduled for October 14-16, 2008 and will return to Pittsburgh.

"The timing for EBW could not have been better", said Dr. Ines Freesen, Managing Director of EBW Expo & Conference organizer Freesen & Partner GmbH. "It seemed that people were hungry for the information presented in the conference. All sessions were very well attended, for some we even ran out of seating capacitiy."

Feedback from exhibitors and delegates alike was positive. "The EBW Expo & Conference event premiere went great and we made some really good connections." commented Mark Suchan of Schmack BioEnergy LLC. "An outstanding conference!" said Randy Wolf of Balcones Fuel Technology. Both these exhibitors benefited from the combination of a booth at the expo and a speaking opportunity at the conference, providing them with increased visibility and the chance to interact with EBW visitors.

EBW is modelled after the "waste to energy" (WTE) exhibition and conference in Bremen, Germany, which was launched by Freesen & Partner and the Bremen Convention Center in 2004 and has become Europe's number one meeting place for the industry. "Our experience with WTE and our network in Europe gives us a unique position in this business", explained Dr. Freesen. "Both sides, the U.S. and Europe, benefit from the exposure and the business opportunities offered by our events." Freesen & Partner has a North American representative office in Rockport, Maine.
