In March 2007, European experts and industry leaders met in Salzburg, Austria for an intensive two-day workshop "Success & Visions for Bioenergy". Their aim was to share the secrets of success in the field of thermal processing of biomass and provide a vision for the European bioenergy industry.

This CD-ROM contains invited presentations, posters and the results from workshop discussions, as well as almost 30 additional papers submitted by speakers and participants.

Presentations: Invited experts from across the bioenergy and biomass field give an overview of state of the art and their vision for the future of the bioenergy industry.

Case studies: Case studies by industry leaders provide an overview of the latest achievements in demonstration and commercial plants.

Visions Invited experts from across the bioenergy and biomass field give an overview of their vision for the future of the bioenergy industry.

Workshop Reports: Workshop reports discuss how to accelerate both the rate of implementation and the success of bioenergy processes. Each workshop was chaired by an authority in the relevant area supported by a rapporteur who present the findings of the workshop. These workshop reports form a key component in the proceedings.

Papers: Additional papers covering topics within the scope of the workshop, some of which have corresponding posters, are included on this CD-ROM.

Posters: Posters, some of which have corresponding papers, were submitted by participants and were available for discussion and viewing throughout the meeting.
