The international symposium “Eco-Innovations from Biomass” on March, 20th and 21st 2019 was dedicated to the bio-based economy and its contribution to climate protection. Around 240 guests and sixty guest speakers from nine different countries participated in this network event, which was organized by the 3N Competence Center Lower Saxony, Network Renewable Resources and Bioeconomy e.V. for the sixth time.

Dr. DI Robert Wimmer represented the Center for Appropriate Technology (AT) at this international meeting with a talk on Life Cycle Habitation – ecological thermal insulation systems. In his speech, he underlined once again the urgent need for future CO2-neutral and resource-conserving building and refurbishing. On the basis of the planned demonstration building LCH, he showed the numerous possibilities and fields of application for building materials made of renewables and their contribution to climate protection.
