New triennium starts
A new triennium starts for IEA Bioenergy and so does the new Task 36 programme.
The role of waste in a circular economy will be the main focus of the task for the next three coming years, as well as other interesting topics such as co-processing of biomass and waste, feedstock recycling and the future of Energy-to-Waste.

Workshop on "nutrient recovery"
There is increased focus on nutrients in waste streams that are lost through linear use and/or waste treatments and especially phosphorus has gotten a lot of attention in the last few years. The acknowledgement of phosphorus as a critical raw material in the EU together with legislative measures in some member countries has boosted technology development. During a full day workshop in Stockholm the member countries of IEA Bioenergy Task 36 shared experiences on nutrient recovery from waste. Opportunities and barriers and the effect of waste management and Energy-from-Waste on the matters were also up for discussion. All the presentations are available at the Task 36 webpage together with a short summary of the report.

SAVE THE DATE: Bioenergy Strong Conference 2019
Bioenergy Australia holds its ‘Bioenergy Strong’ conference annually. In 2019, the “Bioenergy STRONG – driving Australia’s bioeconomy” conference will be held during “Bio Innovation Week”. Created in collaboration with Life Sciences Queensland, all programs for both organisations will take place during the week of 11-15 November 2019. The aim of this conference is to empower, share knowledge and connect bioenergy producers, investors, researchers and users to make Australia’s bioeconomy world-class. Bioenergy Australia is keen to see commercial growth in the industry that takes advantage of bioenergy’s unique potential – from reliable, dispatchable electricity through to advanced biofuels and new regional industries.
Task 36 is taking advantage of this event and holding its “fall” 2019 meeting in Brisbane in November. This is an excellent opportunity for Task members to participate in the Bioenergy Strong events, and also to showcase some of the work being done in the Task to the Australian industry. Our Task workshop exploring 'technology pathways for energy recovery from waste in a circular economy’ is also locally relevant, and we will be integrating parts of this with Australian participants.
