The German BioEnergy Association (BBE) and the Union for the Promotion of Oil and Protein Crops (UFOP) organise the 13. International Congress “Fuels of the Future 2016”.
It will take place at the CityCube in Berlin on 18.01 and 19.01.2016.
New extension in the track&certify® software family. As a new option we provide for our customers now the t&c transport® software. The application was developed for the specific calculation of GHG transport emissions, which are caused by transport, truck, rail or ship.
The Institute for Applied Ecology published the extended version of their modeling study “Klimaschutzszenario 2050”. The study, conducted in cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research, was commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety. Its goal was to develop and analyze different climate change policy ambition levels for the 2050 time horizon and therewith to develop a master plan for the “Energie- und Klimawende” in Germany.
OECD/FAO: Agricultural Outlook 2014-2023
The OECD and the FAO presented their report “Agricultural Outlook 2014-2023” on 11th Juli in Rome.
"The recent fall in prices of major crops is expected to continue over the next two years before stabilising at levels above the pre-2008 period, but markedly below recent peaks, according to the latest Agricultural Outlook produced by the OECD and FAO."
DBFZ: Leipziger Biokraftstoff-Fachgespräch 2014
On 18th of June 2014 there will take place the symposium entitled "What's next for biofuels?" taking place at the DBFZ (Deutsches Biomasseforschungszentrum) in Leipzig. EUFEX staff will participate in this event.
IPCC Working Group 3 publishes report on the Mitigation of Climate Change:
There are further potentials for the reduction of greenhouse gases in the transport sector. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is is a scientific intergovernmental body under the auspices of the United Nations.
ICCT Study: "Wasted: Europe's untapped resource" Summary:
There is a substantial untapped resource available in Europe of unused cellulosic wastes and residues. The technology exists to convert these biomass resources into advanced biofuels, with the technical potential to substitute up to 16% of European road transport fuel by 2030 while delivering greenhouse gas savings of 60% or more.
By the date of 15.05.2013 the German Federal Office for Agriculture and Food (BLE) published a list for the concretion of potential biofuels out of materials according to §7 (1) of the “Verordnung zur Durchführung des Bundes Immissionsschutzgesetzes“ (36. BImSchV). Herewith, a new regulation applies for the qualification of a substance as a waste material and accordingly the double counting of biofuels in the scope of application of the Federal Republic of Germany as well as national systems (e.g. ISCC DE).
As a new option we offer our customers to extend track&certify according to their specific needs in a modular way. The available modules are fully compatible with all track&certify® versions, as well as among each other, and allow significant efficiency increases and therefore reduction of operational costs.
Based upon the successful release of track&certify for the last interface, track&certify collect is available now. It fulfills the requirements according to the 36. BImschV for first gathering points of waste and residues.
