Biomass Utilisation in Australia (and AGM)
April 15, 2009 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Professor Behdad Moghtaderi is a stimulating presenter, who’s broad research area is developing technologies suitable for direct/indirect minimisation of greenhouse emissions. He is a member of the Priority Research Centre of Energy at the University, and his expertise in thermo-fluid engineering has lead to a special interest in biomass utilisation.
Biomass is used extensively at present within Australia, primarily for domestic heating, as feedstock for biofuel and biochemical production, and for electricity generation. Biomass usage for electricity generation is increasing and is expected to reach 5.2 Mt/year by 2019-20. Exports, as wood chips, are approximately 10 Mt/year in 2000-01. Forestry residues have been estimated to be 23 Mt/year.
This meeting is also our AGM which as usual should only take up a very small part of the time. Attached is a nomination form and we will take nominations on the day for any position on the committee. The jobs are not onerous and are a good way to become involved with the environmental community.
