Franco Berruti attended the Specialists’ Workshop on Fast Pyrolysis of Biomass

A Specialists’ Workshop on Fast Pyrolysis of Biomass organized by Wolter Prins and Tony Bridgwater took place on December 8 and 9, 2014 in Ghent, Belgium (see pictures). The aim of the workshop was to bring together a relatively small group of experts active in the field of pyrolysis to discuss the current progress as well as elucidate the opportunities and the best ways to progress in research and development in the future.  Franco Berruti actively participated in the extensive discussions which will be documented in an upcoming publication.
