Denmark prepares to capitalize on global bioenergy market  

A new technology centre will aim to ensure that Danish companies are well placed to rake in a sizeable share of the developing global market for biofuel sourced from biomass and farm slurry

A number of Denmark's major companies, institutes and organizations have set up a new technology centre to help capitalize on the nascent global market for hydrogen, bioethanol, biomass and farm slurry. The Center for Bioenergy and Environmental Technology Innovation near Viborg in central Jutland will help Danish companies acquire knowledge in the bioenergy area.

In Denmark alone, environmental technology for biomass and slurry has a sales potential estimated at DKK 10 bn (USD 1.6 bn) if only 45% of slurry production is exploited, says Michael Støckler who heads the new centre. The figures are from an impartial analysis carried out by the Aarhus School of Business.

The big names behind the new centre include Denmark's largest electricity supplier Elsam, the Technical University of Denmark, Danish Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Agro Business Park, Danish Agricultural Consultancy and the Engineering College of Aarhus, together with a network of companies including Grundfos, Xergi and Samson. The news was reported by regional newspaper Sjællandske.
