Biomass is set to play an increasing role in the supply of energy, both in the industrialized world and in developing countries, as concern for the state of the global environment grows. The possibility for the acceleration of commercial production has received support from the increasing involvement of the large power producers and the growing political commitments of several European countries. The 9th European Bioenergy Conference was held in Copenhagen, 24-27 June 1996. In contrast to previous events, more emphasis was placed on demonstrating bioenergy technology in the marketplace. Overviews on recent achievements in commercial or near commercial activities formed the main focus of the event, but highlights of advances in science and technological development were also presented, in addition to papers covering environmental aspects of bioenergy. The proceedings contain 350 papers addressing the following areas: primary production of biomass; provision and production of solid biomass fuels; processes for large power plants; processes for decentralized heat and power production; processes for production of transportation fuels; market, economic and environmental aspects of bioenergy; and policy measures to overcome non-technical barriers.
