Infotag Güllekleinanlagen 22.06.2016 in Witzenhausen fällt aus!

Aufgrund zu geringer Anmeldungen aus dem direkt landwirtschaftlichen Sektor findet die Veranstaltung, welche Teil des EU-Projekts "BioEnergy Farm2" ist, nicht statt. Wir bitten dies zu entschuldigen.[more]



There was a #PIB3 additional program topic: Information about the Global Alliance of Productive Biogas (GAPB) at 16.30-17.30h in Stuttgart at Haus der Wirtschaft.

  • Dr. Cheng Shikun presented himself as new secretary of the GAPB and presented the interest from the Chinese side (CAREI, USTB, CBS, CBIA ...) to support and coordinate GAPB activities in future. 
  • We invited all interested present participants of the "Progress in Biogas III" to join the meeting and to represent their institution or company.
  • Heinz-Peter Mang gave a short overview of the situation and the board members.
