Stuttgart, being located in Baden-Württemberg, where the Biogas movement started is the most adequate place to offer experts, scientists, practitioners and interested people from all over the world an intensive knowledge exchange in the country of the current "world leader" in biogas. That is why Stuttgart is the ideal framework to organize the international conference "Progress in Biogas."


Stuttgart is the capital of the state of Baden-Württemberg, which is located in the south of Germany. It is the sixth-largest city in Germany. More information about it could be found on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stuttgart
