Special applications

The biomass-to-energy sector is rapidly growing, requiring more knowledge about processes and systems and more research of modern and innovative solutions.

The pretreatment processes of raw biomasses, the innovative methods of energy conversion and the eco-sustainable management of resources represent important themes for the development of energetic production chains.
