The Baltic Manure project finds new business opportunities in new arenas
In parallel with World Bioenergy in Jönköping, Sweden, Enterprise Europe Network and Baltic Manure as a co – organizer arranged a brokerage event, which attracted more than 130 companies from over 30 countries around the world. As a new element in the match making, this year’s edition had a particular focus on manure management technologies in relation to bioenergy in the Baltic Sea Region by combining the bioenergy sector with manure management technologies such as biogas production, separation and composting technologies.
As part of the EU strategy for the Baltic Sea Region and Baltic Manure, the idea was to identify innovative and interesting business opportunities within manure management and to contribute to the overall strategic objective of the Baltic Manure project of changing the general perception of manure from a waste product to a resource.
World Bioenergy is one of Northern Europe’s largest bioenergy trade fairs and it takes place every second year based on the “Taking you from Know – How to Show – How” concept, since the fair combines tradeshow, conference sessions, match making and field excursions into one big event. Furthermore this ensures a good blend of participants including business representatives, researchers, politicians, NGOs and consultants. The overall purpose of World Bioenergy is to promote the implementation of bioenergy technologies.
