Bioenergy2020+ is the Austrian biomass centre of competence providing mainly applied RTD, but also engineering, consultancy, training and networking services to industrial customers. Bioenergy2020+ is run under private law and currently employs about 100 researchers (headcount, ~ 70 full-time equivalents).
Bioenergy2020+ is structured in three fields of RTD:
■ (I) small scale biomass combustion
■ (II ) emission characterization
■ (III) measurement methods and procedures.
More than 90% of Bioenergy2020+´s industrial customers (>100) are SMU-AGs, most of which benefit from BE2020’s outstanding expertise in small scale biomass combustion technology and in development of advanced assessment & testing procedures.
BE2020 is among Europe’s leading research organizations in the field of biomass combustion. The available analytical and experimental equipment includes gas- and particulate analyzers as well as test stands equipped with a calorimeter chamber for direct efficiency determination of room heaters and a dilution tunnel for particle measurement. BE2020+ has an outstanding experience in the development of firewood and pellet heating appliances and the development of related assessment procedures.
