   Presentation of the "Power from waste wood" energy concept at the 
joint North Rhine Westphalia stand from 08 to 12 April 2013

For the third time ENTRADE Energiesysteme AG is joining forces with the Autark Institute at the state of North Rhine Westphalia stand at the Hanover trade fair, where from 8 to 12 April 2013 the institute will be presenting the research networks it supports. The focus will be on the generation of electricity from wood. Covering a range of producers leading scientists and engineers will be providing an overview of the use of wood for energy purposes and presenting the latest technology and innovative concepts for generating power as well as providing heating and cooling in the small to medium output category.

The first "HolzStrom" (wood electricity) installation which is fuelled by wood chippings and green waste has already been set up and will in future provide electricity and heating to the entire premises of Entrade Energiesysteme AG at Schloss Schmidtheim in the Eifel municipality of Dahlem.

As the initiator and member of the "HolzStrom" network ENTRADE Energiesysteme AG promotes the ongoing development of wood gasification power stations in the range below one megawatt. The targets are optimising processes for small-scale biomass gasification for the purpose of generating electricity and heating, as well as the development of products in the field of combined heat and power (CHP) on the basis of innovative advanced technology.

The "HolzStrom" network was established more than two years ago in Bad Münstereifel and is supported by the Federal Ministry for Economics and Technology as part of the "Central innovation in Medium-sized Companies (ZIM)-NEMO" programme. Its members currently include around 20 companies, universities and public research institutes throughout Germany. Among them are RWTH Aachen, the Technical University of Zittau/Görlitz, the Fraunhofer Institute UMSICHT in Oberhausen and the North Rhine Westphalia Energy Research Cluster. The aim of the research networks is to help promising technological approaches for producing energy from regenerative sources to reach the stage where they can be marketed.

The AUTARK Institute and ENTRADE Energiesysteme AG at the "Integrated Industry" 2013 HANOVER TRADE FAIR from 08 to 12 February: Hall 27, Stand E60, joint North Rhine Westphalia stand.
