Ceylon Chamber of Commerce, the country’s premier business chamber will conduct a seminar on Sustainable Biomass Energy Production and Modern Bio Technologies in a bid to help the government’s drive towards increasing the production of biomass based energy sources in the Island.
The seminar, which will be held during the second week of February, 2016 at the Ground Floor Auditorium of the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce, will focus on educating the stakeholders on an on-going GEF (Global Environment Facility) Funded project which is being implemented by the Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority, with the support of the FAO and UNDP.
The project aims to promote ‘Sustainable Biomass Energy Production and Modern Bio-Energy Technologies’ with the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the use of fossil fuel for thermal energy generation in Sri Lanka’s industrial sector.
The on-going GEF funded project, authorities expect will help remove barriers to the realization of sustainable biomass plantation, increase the market share of biomass energy generation mix and adoption of improved biomass-based energy technologies in Sri Lanka.
It focuses on four key areas such as, ‘Policy-institutional support for effective implementation’; ‘Barrier removal for sustainable fuel wood production,’ ‘Enabling environment for fuel wood suppliers’; and also ‘Wood-based energy technology development’.
The upcoming seminar, which provides free entry to interested parties will delve more on the on-going GEF Funded programme. Please call on 0115588891 to register for this seminar, which will start at 2.30 pm on 11th July, 2016.
