Got bush? If so, the Biomass Technology Expo 2019 is an event not to be missed! If you are a farmer, business, corporate, or entrepreneur who is interested in the unlimited economic opportunity of woody biomass, then this expo is for you!

The Biomass Technology Expo will host over 100 registered exhibitors, over 50 of which will be demonstrating their technologies, products, and services live during the event. The expo will also have over 35 presentations from expert speakers, including representatives from as far as Austria, Denmark, Germany, the United Kingdom, the United States of America, South Africa, and Namibia. 

The 100 exhibitors represent bush-to-feed, charcoal & biochar, biomass energy, composites, research and development and more! The technologies to be demonstrated during the expo will include harvesting, chipping, milling, pelleting, carbonising, surveying, mixing, mulching, burning, smoking, and others.     

The expo will be the perfect place to spend the whole day, with a wide range of food vendors, drinks, and treats available, and a supervised kid’s play area for the little ones! 

The Biomass Technology Expo will be used to raise funds for drought relief, with the ticket proceeds being donated to the Dare to Care drought relief initiative, as well as a drought relief raffle, with great prizes to be won!

Taking place just south of Otjiwarongo, at the Otjiwa Safari Lodge, on Friday, 9 August, the Biomass Technology Expo is going to be one of the biggest events of the year, attracting over a thousand visitors from all over Namibia and Southern Africa.
