Joint call 2: Gasification (2007)

In the framework of ERA-NET Bioenergy, the second joint call was launched on June 1st 2007 for proposals on the topic “Gasification: cleaning and treatment of product gas from biomass gasifiers”. Seven countries participated with their national programmes in this coordinated activity: Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom. In the end 6 proposals were funded for a total budget of 3.3 million euro. Presentations about the results were held at the final seminar in Lyon, May 5th 2010.
