Workshops/Training Events

The organisation of four public Workshops has been a very important phase of the Phydades Action. These events have been organized in New Member States, in order to stimulate the biomass market, the interest of main actors and create a diffuse knowledge on biofuels analysis methods.

Speakers of the event were members of the consortium, CEN standardization experts and local experts.

The presentations covered topics as fuel specification and classes, quality assurance, sampling and most important standards for analysing physical properties e.g. moisture content, particle size distribution, ash content, and mechanical durability of pellets. Several examples of the real solid biofuel end-users from industry (heating plants, power stations, pellet producers) have been presented. Also the use of the new BIODAT database have been advised to the participants.
