Bioenergy Australia 2005 : Biomass for Energy, the Environment and Society Australia's premier bioenergy conference, Bioenergy Australia 2005, will be held at the Rydges Melbourne Hotel on 12 - 13 December with a conference tour on 14 December. The program will have over 50 presentations, covering policies and programs, projects and project development case studies, and emerging opportunities. The conference will consider many other facets of bioenergy including anaerobic digestion, liquid biofuels, pyrolysis bio-oil, heat and power and overarching aspects of bioenergy, such as life cycle emissions. The conference will be opened by the Hon. John Thwaites, Victorian Minister for the Environment. Dr Juergen Vehlow of Germany will provide the keynote address and the Hon.

The Conference will be held in conjunction with an International Energy Agency Bioenergy Task 36 meeting on ‘Energy from Integrated Solid Waste Management Systems’, which will bring several international experts in this field into the conference program. Again this year, there will also be a session on advanced thermal conversion of biomass. An extended panel discussion, facilitated by Prof. Ralph Sims, Director Energy Research Centre, Massey University NZ, will consider ‘How Australia Achieved a Biobased Economy by 2040’. This conference has a reputation for excellent programs and networking opportunities at a most reasonable cost.
