Renewtec has been invited to become a member of the EUBCE Industry Committee.
EUBCE is the Europe’s largest international conference focused on biomass combining a highly-respected international scientific conference with an industrial exhibition and gathers participants from research, industry, policy and business of biomass.
- It highlights progress in research, technological development and production processes.
- It brings together all key specialists to make it the most important international platform for dialogue between research, industry, research and industry, and policy in the biomass sector.
The 23rd European Biomass Conference and Exhibition, EUBCE 2015, takes place 1-4 June in Vienna.
The 21st of October EQTEC Iberia SL in Parets del Vallés outside Barcelona was visited by Renewtec. EQTEC Iberia markets its proprietary fluidized bed gasifier adopted for agricultural feedstock and forest residues.

The day after, the 22nd of October, Institut de Recerca en Energía de Catalunya, IREC, was visited. The mission of the Catalan Instutite for Energy Research is to contribute to the sustainable development of society and increase corporate competitivness via
- innovation and development of new technological products
- medium and long-term research
- development of scientific and technological knowledge in the field of energy
Dr. Josep Carreras, Group Leader at IREC and Jörgen Held, Renewtec in discussion about R&D of renewable methane for grid injection and/or as vehicle fuel.
On the 20th of October Renewtec visited Instituto Catalán de Energía (ICAEN) in Barcelona. The Catalan Institute of Energy aims at the promotion and realization of initiatives and action programs for research, development and application of energy technologies, including renewables, boosting savings and energy efficiency, promotion of rational use of energy and, in general, the optimal management of energy resources in the different economic sectors in Catalonia.
Jörgen Held, Renewtec informs Francesc Vidal, ICAEN about the upcoming REGATEC conference that takes place on the 7th-8th May 2015 in Barcelona.
On the 10th of October Renewtec visited Dr. York Neubauer, head of the Thermochemical Conversion and Process Analysis group at the Department for Energy Technology at Technische Universität Berlin.
Dr. Neubauer’s research is directed towards analysis and cracking of tar components in product gas from biomass gasification plants.
Dr. Neubauer takes part in the BESTF project BioProGReSs where the aim is an industrial demonstration of a new tar reforming solution developed at Chalmers, Sweden. TU Berlin’s part in the project deals with control of the tar reformer through an innovative online tar monitoring tool developed in-house.
Dr. York Neubauer gives Jörgen Held, Renewtec AB a private tour in the different laboratories. Besides equipment for analysis the department has an advanced laboratory for laser spectroscopy and it’s own fludized bed gasifier.
