Speakers of the International Congress
Overview of confirmed speakers
Chair for Energy Systems, Technical University of Munich, Garching, Germany
He holds a B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering (RWTH Aachen) and an M.Sc. in Energy and Process Engineering (TUM).
Since March 2021, he has been conducting research at the Chair of Energy Systems on biomass-to-liquid, power-to-liquid and combinations of the two process routes (PBtL). In particular, biomass entrained flow gasification in combination with hydrogen addition from electrolysis and subsequent fuel synthesis are being simulatively investigated.

Wolter Elbersen (1964) is an agronomist working as Senior Scientist at Wageningen University and Research. His interests are the development of sustainable biomass supply systems for the circular biobased economy. He works on adding value to residues from oil palm, sugar cane, pineapple, rice straw and coffee production and processing. His current work is on quantifying circularity and effects on biodiversity of different biomass utilization systems. He has assessed biomass supply options for energy in The Netherlands, Colombia and Suriname. He is coordinator of Sustainable biomass production of EERA (European Energy Research Association) Bioenergy and has been a member of the Dutch Sustainable Biomass Commission, advising the government of biomass/bioenergy policies in the context of national sustainability goals.
