On September 7, 2016, the third annual conference of the SCCER BIOSWEET took place at the Campussaal in Brugg/Windisch. With over 90 participants from academia, industry and public sector organizations the event achieved great resonance in the Swiss bioenergy community. In the morning, the Partners from the SCCER BIOSWEET communicated the status of their research activities in the area of anaerobic digestion, liquid biofuels and hydrothermal biomass conversion processes. In the afternoon, the audience had the chance gain inside into the challenges and contribution of biomass combustion and decentralized biomass-CHP plants to the future energy supply. The closing of the conference was orchestrated by the Entrepreneurship program of the Commission of Technology and Innovation and the SCCER BIOSWEET Partner Treatech resulting in a lively debate on how to develop and implement business ideas. We would like to thank all partners and participants for their contributions.
