BIOMASS COMBUSTION CD-ROM - version 3 2004
The potential for the conversion of all forms of BIOMASS into energy is rapidly increasing. In Europe it is aimed to install 10,000 MW/h of combined heat and power from BIOMASS by 2010. This represents an increase from 45 Mtoe in 1995 to 135 Mtoe in 2010. It is expected to generate enormous amounts of revenue in all BIOMASS sectors.
Writtten by a panel of experts from leading European biomass organisations, including VTT ENERGY, New Energy Technologies , Espoo - Finland (C. Wilen, T. Mδkinen, K. Sipila, E Alakangas, K. Veijonen), C.A.R.M.E.N. ( Centrales Agrar Rohstoff Marketing und Entwicklungs Netzwerk) Bayern - Germany (W. Ortinger Mr.Wunderer, Dr. G. Justinger), University of Technology, Institute of Chemical Engineering, Fuel and Environmental Technology, Wien - Austria ( A.Schmidt, M. Harasek ), Biomasse Normandie Caen - France (Y. Oremus, J.C. Pouet ) and LIOR, Hoeilaart - Belgium (Gian Luca Ferrero, Bruce Douglas, Paola Bonato, Giovanna Miserocchi), this Encyclopedia on BIOMASS COMBUSTION answers, in great detail, most questions relating to the generation of heat and/or power from the combustion of biomass.
thousands of interactive screens, fully illustrated with videos, animations and sound provides easy access to a wide range of information for both experts and general interest users: a unique user-friendly encyclopaedic practical tool.
International experts have provided concise and relevant information on a range of topics including:
Biogas from Waste and Water Treatment CD-ROM - Version 3
Professer Nyns and Ir. Sylviane Thomas The areas of WASTE and WASTE WATER TREATMENT are becoming increasingly important for: pollution control, resource management and energy production. This Encyclopedic CD-ROM shows you how an integrated approach can provide all three .
Renown international experts in - BIOGAS - WASTE - WASTE WATER TREATMENT and ENERGY PRODUCTION have collected huge amounts of information on successful technologies and applications throughout the world. They have summarised this extensive knowledge in this CD-ROM
The Encyclopedia provides, in a readily accessible format:
all the available global knowledge coverage of the production and utilisation of biogas, thorough treatment of waste and water.

As part of a public awareness programme supported by the Walloon Region, the International Polar Foundation (IPF) has issued an educational CD-ROM focusing on energy.
The energy CD-ROM was designed for teachers and environmental educators. It addresses energy within the broader perspective of climate change and it gives some tips to young people about what they can do for the environment.
There are 15 multimedia animations on the CD-ROM that deal with key questions such as:
What is energy, and where does it come from?
How much does energy cost?
Which sectors consume a lot of energy in Belgium and the rest of Europe?
What is the current state of our natural resource reserves throughout the world?
The CD-ROM also deals with topics such as electricity, the ecological footprint, passive buildings, biofuels and the rational use of energy...
With all these topics covered, the CD-ROM is a visual aid for a fun and interactive approach to discussing today's energy issues.
List of the 15 flash animations included :
Energy in general
Where does energy come from?
How much does energy cost?
Resources & reserves: How much energy is there still left under the ground?
Sources of energy: Today and tomorrow
Are biofuels a "green" alternative to oil?
Use of energy
