Besides erecting entirely new biofuel plants, retrofitting – i.e. replacing a part of a factory or installation with state-of-the-art equipment – can be a very good alternative to substitute fossil fuels or to upgrade renewable technology. Retrofitting often means lower capital expenditure (CAPEX), shorter lead times, faster implementation, less production time losses and lower risks. The BIOFIT project was set-up to foster retrofitting measures on the European market.
What are crucial challenges for plant operators and engineers?
What are the decisive framework conditions for conducting retrofitting measures?
What are the benefits from already implemented retrofits?
We want to discuss these questions with you in interactive sessions. You will have the opportunity to exchange knowledge, give feedback and hear from experts about best practice examples and experiences with retrofitting. The participants will get considerable space to present their industry/company, problems and challenges in order to contribute to the joint goal of retrofitting the industry with bioenergy integration.
In order to best plan your activities, the matchmaking plattform offers the opportunity to organize and plan your meetings beforehand. Furthermore, at the forum, a particular time slot and place is reserved for your individual one-on-one meetings. Matchups are an opportunity to introduce your company or fund to other attendees in short 20-minute 1:1 sessions.
